Vancouver Summer Program

The program offers the opportunity for undergraduate students to learn about forestry and natural resource management issues in Canada, while also exploring Canadian society and culture through interactive lectures, class discussions, field-trips, various social activities, and intercultural workshops. The available study packages currently consist of: Forest Management and Carbon; Forest Products, Trade and Business Management; and Urban Forestry, each of which include two academic courses. Since 2013, we have welcomed a total of 215 students from 14 different universities to the Forestry VSP.

The joint educational platform has also created exchange programs to promote students’ global awareness and cross-cultural understanding. These programs aim to cultivate global citizens through short-term or long-term overseas learning experiences filled with field trips and transformational learning opportunities.
