Elementary & Middle Years Registration Guide
2021/22 Bachelor of Education Program – Winter Session

Registration is open on June 18 and June 21-23, 2021 at 9:00 a.m.

UBC is following all British Columbia Ministry of Health protocols concerning the ongoing COVID-19 situation. Following directives from the British Columbia Ministry of Health, UBC is planning for increased on-campus activity in the 2021/22 Winter Session, including on-campus instruction. Although more information will be forthcoming, teacher candidates accepting admission offers for the 2021/22 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 in order to fulfill this part of the program. General updates are available on the UBC website at covid19.ubc.ca.

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 2021/22 winter session course schedule will be published on June 1, 2021. 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 June 1 with a link to an online form where you will submit your ranked cohort preferences. The deadline to submit your preferences is June 8 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 mid-June.
  • 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 mid-June.)

French Teacher Candidates

Teacher candidates with a specialization in French do not complete the cohort preference form as they will register in the Elementary French Immersion cohort standard timetable. The Elementary French Immersion cohort is restricted to teacher candidates admitted with a French specialization.


Registration Instructions

You are currently registering for the Winter Session (September to June). Registration for the Summer Session (June to July) begins in February 2022.

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: 2021 Winter.
3) Click Browse > Standard Timetables.
4) Select your program: BEEM Year 1.

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.

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.
