June 1-26, 2015
Offered over four weeks each June, this popular series provides an opportunity to challenge your mind, expand your understanding, refresh yourself with new ideas, join with friends old and new, and, of course, have fun!
Participants meet on the UBC Point Grey campus for one to four individual weeks of stimulating lectures, lively discussion and shared enquiry. You select two morning courses from four options each week, and sign up for one week or more. The courses take place each morning, Monday to Friday. Ageless Pursuits courses can be applied to the UBC Certificate in Liberal Studies.
Registration for Ageless Pursuits 2015 is now open!

For our 55+ participants, we continue our long tradition of providing these lectures at a special subsidized rate this year, $135 per week. For those under 55, the fee is $155 per week. Fee includes free daily beverages and end-of-week celebrations. Space is limited and classes often fill quickly, so we suggest you register early to avoid disappointment.
Classes are held in the Frederic Lasserre Building and the UBC School of Music. The Frederic Lasserre Building is located near the intersection of Main Mall and Memorial Road, just north of the Koerner Library. The UBC School of Music is basically “right across the street” from the Lasserre Builing, also on Memorial Road. As the lecture halls can be chilly, we suggest that you bring a sweater or light jacket.
Daily pay parking is available at the Fraser Parkade, located at 1913 West Mall, adjacent to the Asian Centre and to the west of the Frederic Lasserre Building. For more information about summer parking rates, please visit UBC Parking and Access Services or call them at 604.822.6786.
Choose two morning courses from four options each week, and sign up for one week or more. Courses take place each morning, Monday to Friday, leaving your afternoons free to enjoy some of the many other facilities and attractions available on the UBC campus.
