Intercultural Communication

Advancement Program (iCAP)

As students graduate from their secondary-school programs, they often fi nd the transition to university studies much harder than they imagined. Undergraduate students struggle with the academic, social and organizational requirements needed to succeed. When these university-level studies happen in a foreign country with an unfamiliar culture, even students with strong language skills can struggle to adapt successfully. The University of British Columbia (UBC) has specially designed the Intercultural Communication Advancement Program (iCAP) to meet these needs. It is a program designed to assist students from outside of Canada to prepare for the demands of undergraduate study at a Western university. Intercultural Communication Advancement Program (iCAP)

Our full-time program helps students improve the intercultural communication and critical thinking skills of international students as they study academic content in a range of fields. Students enroll in four academic courses chosen from the fields of Arts, Business and Science and study within a framework that explains North American academic culture and expectations.
The program also anticipates students' needs by adding a term of pre-sessional English language training so that any lack of language fluency will not slow them down. Each student is assigned a mentor to support him or her during this time away from home, and each student can take advantage of a placement service to help them find an appropriate undergraduate program when they are ready to graduate from iCAP.
This combination of academic and skills-based training is ideal for students looking to ready themselves for the academic and cultural demands of studying in an international setting.
In short, iCAP prepares international students for success in today's global economy. Even better, this non-credit program is off ered by one of the world's top universities: The University of British Columbia.
Program Details: With the pre-sessional language training, iCAP involves full-time study at UBC for up to 36 weeks over approximately 9 months. The tuition and fees for iCAP with the pre-sessional language training are $18, 950 CAD for 2007- 2008.
