Student Life

What takes place in the classrooms is just the beginning of your experience at the UBC ELI. Our social activities program and Cultural Assistants make the ELI a special and exciting place to learn English.

Cultural Assistants

Our Cultural Assistants (CAs) are friendly and energetic UBC students who share and teach Canadian life and customs, and help ELI students adjust to life away from home.

Social and Cultural Activities

There's a lot going on every week at the ELI! We host a variety of fun activities during lunch, after class and on the weekends.
