The breathtaking University of British Columbia is the site of our partner school’s exciting summer programme! Enjoy your time on this pristine, Canadian university campus full of tall trees and green fields, just a stone’s throw from the Pacific. Mornings will be spent learning English from your dynamic teachers in modern classrooms, while afternoons are dedicated to fun activities like music, drama, basketball or tennis, where you’ll interact with local, Canadian students joining in on the activities programme. Every evening after dinner, students can take part in another activity, ranging from movie nights to karaoke, and Saturdays and Sundays have full-day excursions so you can really discover Canada!

Passport info
If you are of Swiss or European nationality, no visa is necessary to participate in the programme, insofar as you are in possession of a valid passport which is valid for at least six months following your return date, in accordance with current legislation.

From January 2016 onwards, all citizens of countries like France, Belgium or Switzerland, who do not need a visa to enter Canada, must get an electronic travel authorisation before taking their flight to Canada. This will allow them to enter Canadian territory.

Warning! If your flight includes a stopover in the USA, you must be in possession of a valid biometric passport which is valid for at least six months following your return date. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

Flight info
Canada is a great destination for a language study trip abroad. However, you must know that the journey to get there is relatively long with, generally, one stopover, depending on which city you are flying from. Most airline companies will be able to offer you an accompaniment service; therefore do not hesitate to contact us for further information. It is necessary, however, that the student feels capable of managing this long journey. Then, all he/she has left to do is to enjoy Canadian life!
