Elementary & Middle Years Registration Guide
2022/23 Bachelor of Education Program – Winter Session


COVID-19 and the 2022/23 Bachelor of Education Program:
UBC follows all British Columbia Ministry of Health protocols concerning COVID-19. UBC is planning for on-campus instruction for the 2022/23 Winter Session. Teacher candidates accepting admission offers for the 2022/23 Bachelor of Education program should be prepared to be in Vancouver/Lower Mainland to participate in face-to-face coursework and practica. Therefore, if applicable, you will need to arrange for housing and childcare to fulfill this part of the program. General updates are available on the UBC website at covid19.ubc.ca.

Registration opens on June 10 & 13, 2022 at 9:00 a.m.

Please review all information and instructions below carefully.

All teacher candidates take the same core courses and remain together in cohorts for most of their course work. Cohorts may have different timetables and some variation in courses. All cohorts prepare teacher candidates to teach Grades K-7.

The 2022/23 winter session course schedule will be published on May 2, 2022. Course schedules are subject to change before the start of the academic year.

Step 1: Submit Ranked Cohort Preferences

  • Teacher candidates in the elementary & middle years option will be assigned to a cohort by the Teacher Education Office.
  • Review the list of cohorts under the Cohorts dropdown menu below.
  • You will receive an email on May 6 with a link to an online form where you will submit your ranked cohort preferences. The deadline to submit your preferences is May 16 at 11:45pm.
  • Review your cohort preference rankings carefully before submitting as changes to submitted rankings will not be possible.
  • You will be advised of your cohort placement and registration date in late May.
  • Please note that there are limited seats in all cohorts and a particular cohort placement is not guaranteed.

Step 2: Register in Assigned Cohort’s Timetable

  • Register in the standard timetable for your assigned cohort on the applicable date as per the Registration Instructions and Cohort Registration Schedule below.
  • Teacher candidates must only register in the standard timetable for their assigned cohort.
  • The TEO will monitor registration. TCs who register in a standard timetable for a cohort to which they have not been assigned will be de-registered by the TEO.

Teacher candidates may not add or drop courses from the standard timetable.

Cohorts have pre-determined practicum locations. Teacher candidates must arrange for transportation to assigned schools. Change requests based on transportation will not be approved.

After you register in your cohort, complete the Elementary & Middle Years Practicum Placement Request Form. (Teacher candidates should only submit this form after receiving a cohort assignment in late May.)

Further instructions to assist you with registration:

Registration Instructions

You are currently registering for the Winter Session (September to June). Registration for the Summer Session (June to July) begins in February 2023.

Step 1

If you have not already paid the acceptance deposit, then you must do so prior to your registration date in order to unblock your registration.

Step 2

You can create a worklist at www.students.ubc.ca/ssc by adding your cohort standard timetable (STT).

Step 3

On your cohort's registration date (see Cohort Registration Schedule tab), log in to the SSC and register in a selected worklist or add your cohort standard timetable as follows:

  1. Click Course Schedule.
  2. Select Session: 2022 Winter.
  3. Click Browse > Standard Timetables.
  4. Select your program: BEEM Year 1.
  5. Click on the selected cohort* and the Register STT button.

*Only register in the cohort to which you have been assigned. The Teacher Education Office will monitor registration and teacher candidates who register in a standard timetable for a cohort to which they have not been assigned will be de-registered.

The standard timetable contains all required courses for the winter session.

Step 4

Click on Timetable to print your course schedule. Re-print the schedule in mid-August in case changes have been made.

You can disregard the unscheduled course warning for EDUC 418D/419D. EDUC 418D/419D is the extended practicum course and it is part of the standard timetable. The warning just means that the course will not display on your timetable view as it is not an on campus course.

Step 5

Click on Financial Summary for information about deadlines for tuition and fee payment.

Note that the Financial Summary will reflect tuition and student fees due for the winter session only. You will register again next February for Summer Session courses to complete your program. Additional tuition and student fees for Summer Session coursework will be assessed at that time.

Step 6

Review your mailing and email addresses. Make sure they are correct.


Program credits are the total number of credits for the Teacher Education Program, comprising both Winter Session and Summer Session. You are currently registering for the Winter Session and you will register in the remaining credits for your program in the Summer Session. Registration for the Summer Session will take place in February 2023.
