Continuing Studies

The Continuing Studies department offers a wide range of courses and programs from personal development to professional training and upgrading as well as special events. Continuing Studies courses are offered at UCFV’s three campuses in Chilliwack, Abbotsford, and Mission, and in community facilities in Hope and Agassiz. The courses are offered on a short-term or part-time basis during evenings, daytime hours, and weekends.

UCFV aspires to serve residents of all ages and in all parts of the community, and therefore looks to local groups and individuals for course ideas and for assistance in program planning. It cooperates with community agencies in organizing co-sponsored courses and events, and encourages participation by interested individuals and community groups.

Continuing Studies issues program booklets twice each year, before the beginning of each semester in September and January. The booklets are delivered free to every household in the UCFV region. They list and describe all the full- and part-time Continuing Studies courses offered by UCFV, and contain all the information necessary for you to enrol. Or check the website at for more details.

Continuing Studies has an extensive instructional program, offering non-credit courses in many employment-related fields. Many business, trade, and occupational courses are offered on a part-time basis for both upgrading and pre-employment training.

Continuing Studies program and course categories include: certificate programs, agriculture and horticulture, career and job training, community health education, dental professions, fine arts, first aid and CPR, information technology, human and social services, languages, personal and professional development, sports and recreational leadership, tourism and hospitality, trades and technology, and writing.

Many part-time vocational courses are offered in response to special requests by business, industry, and labour. UCFV can respond quickly to requests for specialized training.
