Transforming education to meet the needs of today’s learners.

At UBC Okanagan, we recognize that the way learners pursue their education and career goals is changing. Continuing and Professional Education offers courses and programs beyond traditional degrees to enhance your knowledge, acquire skills and develop competencies for the next stage of your journey.

Transformative learning is an important part of the ‘Shaping UBC’s Next Century‘ strategic plan and UBC Okanagan’s Outlook 2040. That’s why in 2021, UBC Okanagan extended programming to include new micro-credential programs, funded in part by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training. We will continue to add exciting new programs to help our learners advance their skills to meet current and future needs in high-demand industries and sectors.
