Online Courses

Online Courses

The Faculty of Education has a long tradition of supporting online learning courses. The flexibility of course delivery has enabled thousands of UBC students to complete their programs and receive degrees. Increased student-student and student-teacher interaction, up-to-date content, and access to the most current references are just a few benefits of online learning.

Our How to Apply & Register page provides detailed information on admissions.

Subject Areas

To find available course sections click the course code to open the UBC Calendar. Online courses are not available in every term and there may be on-campus sections in the calendar, so check the course details to ensure you register in the right section.

Note: Course outlines are subject to change. A full course syllabus will be provided by the instructor at the beginning of each course.


COURSES


ADHE Course Waitlists

Due to the demand for our courses we have a waitlist for classes that are full. Please sign up for the waitlist section of the course.
For wait-listed students please note the following:
  1. Please be aware that registration is blocked once courses are full, which prevents everyone from registering. If your registration is blocked, please check to see if the course is full, and then sign up for the waitlist section of the course.
  2. The waitlist works on a priority basis; if seats become available they are given to students who are registered in the following degree programs: (a) ALE MEds/MAs, (b) ADHE Diploma, and (c) CAHE Arts Minor. This is followed by students outside of these degrees by registration date.
  3. Students will be moved into the class automatically as seats become available. Please check the SSC to confirm your registration.
  4. We will be moving in students off the waitlist and into the course once per day. If you see a space available in the course that means we have either not moved in students today, or that someone has dropped the course after we have moved in students and that seat will not be assigned until the next day.
  5. In most cases waitlists will continue to be active and will be monitored up to the last day to withdraw without a W standing for the term.  Please note:  some course instructors close their course to new registrations before the last day to withdraw without a W standing.
  6. If you have any further questions please contact pro-d.educ@ubc.ca.
