Jump Start – Academic Session Workshop

Students enrolled in Jump Start will participate in this workshop as part of the two-week immersion program, that contains academic, social and logistical components designed to help introduce them to the university, their Faculty and new friends.

Jump Start at UBC’s Vancouver campus is a first year transition program for new international and Aboriginal students. It begins with a two-week immersion program in August and continues to support students throughout their first year at UBC. All international and Aboriginal students entering their first year at UBC are expected to register for Jump Start.
