Relief is on the way to Surrey students who have had to face long commute times to Vancouver to take a GMAT preparation course.

Starting Feb. 19, the University of British Columbia (UBC) Continuing Studies is offering GMAT classes at the City Centre Library in Surrey.

This is the first time that any educational institution has offered a GMAT course in the Surrey area.

The GMAT, or Graduate Management Admission Test, is a standardized test used as part of the admissions criteria by graduate schools offering Master of Business Administration (MBA) and other master’s degree programs.

Most students take lessons to prepare for the exam and to maximize their score.

But for many in the Surrey and North Delta area, attending these classes has often meant long hours in traffic or on transit to travel to and from UBC Robson Square.

Taking UBC Continuing Studies’ new Surrey-based GMAT course allows students to spend less time commuting and more time studying.

The winter session of the 30-hour course will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays for five consecutive weeks, Feb. 19 to March 21. All classes will be held at the City Centre Library in Surrey from 6-9 p.m. Students should visit testprepubc.ca to register.
