*NEW Bursary Information *
Our interactive summer institutes focus on the practical application of French through conversation and cultural experiences in a supportive, small group environment. Both three-week and one-week programs are available.
For more information regarding our French Summer Institutes, please visit our website.
We are pleased to announce that bursaries for our French Summer Institutes are now administered directly by UBC Continuing Studies on behalf of the French Education Branch of the BC Ministry of Education. This means that you will no longer need to pay the full tuition amount in advance and apply separately to the ministry.
To be eligible, applicants must have a valid BC Teaching Certificate or Letter of Permission to teach from the Teacher Regulation Branch. Non-certified teachers from independent schools classified under Group 3 may provide a letter from the school administration confirming their employment instead. Current employment with a BC school district is NOT required.
If funds are remaining after June 24, bursaries will be offered to employees of BC school districts who are not certified teachers, but who have regular contact with students in French programs.
Funding is available for both the three-week and one-week programs.
There is lots of funding still available, so if you or anyone you know is interested in improving their French this summer, apply now.
