A university education opens many new opportunities for the future. But many students wonder what it is like to live and study at a University. Introducing high school students to what is expected of them in a university environment helps prepare them for successful entry into the next phase of their education.


Urban Design and Cities - August 4-15, 2014

  • Students learn about the sustainable design of cities, including ecology, infrastructure, movement systems, land use and the design of buildings and open spaces
  • Using Vancouver as an urban laboratory, students apply what they learn to an existing neighbourhood through an integrated design charrette
  • Students meet with urban design professionals and are presented with information on university and professional career opportunities in architecture, landscape architecture, land and real estate development and community and regional planning.
  • Students can elect to live on campus or attend classes only.
