      Imagine visiting Vancouver’s English Bay and gorgeous seawall immediately after finishing a day of classes at your postsecondary institution.

      This is all too possible at University Canada West’s (UCW) new campus—Vancouver House.

      Located between the West End and Yaletown, UCW’s Vancouver House campus offers a range of business-oriented undergraduate and graduate programs.

      The Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Arts in Business Communication, Associate of Arts, and Master of Business Administration are only some of the programs available to UCW students.

      Along with technology-oriented programs, UCW provides its students with a diverse and challenging learning environment. The passionate faculty members encourage and facilitate practical application of knowledge gathered from the courses.

      Not only is the new campus able to provide career-focused education to an additional 3,400 students, it is also an architectural marvel.

      Vancouver House was meticulously designed by Bjarke Ingels, the founder of leading architecture firm . The unique architectural masterpiece won the title of “Future Project of the Year” at the 2015 World Architecture Awards in Singapore, before construction began.

      The new campus is now considered the hub for the developing Beach District, which will soon be home to many restaurants and curated shipping-container pop-ups. 

      Students at UCW’s Vancouver House campus can also admire the illustrious Spinning Chandelier by Rodney Graham, suspended from the Granville Street Bridge.

       “Our new campus, in the centre of one of the world's most livable cities, will give students the skills they need with leading MBA and tech-based programs,” says Cyndi McLeod, CEO of Global University Systems Canada. “This is what tomorrow's leaders are looking for.”

      UCW will continue to operate its West Pender campus, as UCW continues to expand. Additionally, the accredited university offers all courses and programs online, for those who are unable to physically attend either location.
