2021-22 Winter Session Courses


UBC is currently planning a return to on-campus activity for 2021/22 Winter Session. Courses will be primarily delivered in-person, with the expectation that students will attend on campus in September.

A limited selection of courses will be available with online delivery.

If you are a student from UBC Vancouver, please review the UBC Vancouver guide to courses.

Choosing your courses

Use the Course Schedule search tool to help you select your courses.

Most courses will be in-person. If any component of a course is delivered in-person, the course schedule will show that it requires in-person attendance.

How to search for online courses

If you are unable to attend classes in-person, use the Course Schedule search tool and select “No” in the field for “Courses that require in-person attendance.

This search filter will restrict your search to display only the courses that are fully online and have no in-person components.

Course activity modes of delivery

A single course may include multiple course activities, such as Lectures, Labs, Seminars, or other activity types. Review the guide to UBC classes to learn about course formats and assessment at UBC.

For the 2021/22 Winter Session, each course activity in the Course Schedule will display its Mode of Delivery as in-person, online, or hybrid:

  • In-person: The course component is taking place in-person.
  • Online: The course component is fully online.
  • Hybrid: The course component takes place in-person, but will also be provided online for students who cannot come to campus.

In some courses, one activity may be delivered online while another activity is in-person, so simply selecting “online” or “hybrid” as the Mode of Delivery does not guarantee that all the course elements are fully online. For example, a course may have an online lecture, with the lab component conducted on campus.

It’s always a good idea to check the Section Notes of each course on the Course Schedule to confirm the mode of delivery. When the term begins, consult the syllabus for the most up-to-date and accurate course information.
