Technology, Media and Professional Programs Transition to the UBC Sauder School of Business

On March 15, 2017, the UBC Vancouver Senate approved the evolution of Continuing Studies (CS) into a new unit called UBC Extended Learning (UBC ExL), effective July 1, 2017.

As part of this evolution, UBC Continuing Studies is transferring Technology, Media and Professional Programs' (TMaP) courses and programs to the UBC Sauder School of Business as of June 2017. Read more about the transition in a news story on the UBC Sauder School of Business website.

During the transition, you can continue to enrol in TMaP courses and programs on the Continuing Studies website. You can also register for courses and apply them toward certificates, award of achievements, associate certificates or accelerated diploma programs.

We are working with the UBC Sauder School of Business to maintain an excellent level of service and minimize disruptions during this transition period, and thank you for your patience and understanding.
