Our Partner

The University of British Columbia (UBC) is a key academic partner, supporter and funder. Their total participation as of Summer 2018 is as follows:

Students: 1,362
Projects: 152
Faculty: 94
Courses: 75

Since our launch in 2011, students from a number of UBC faculties have participated in the Semester at CityStudio program, a semester-long immersive experience that provides students with the opportunity to co-create experimental projects with interdisciplinary teams. The course runs for one term, Monday through Friday.

Each term we also match projects with a number of campus courses and have been working with the Faculty of Education’s Masters of Education for Sustainability program since 2015.

See a list of current courses below or get in touch if you’d like CityStudio to work with your course.
