Exchange Programs

Go Global's student exchange programs offer UBC students the opportunity to study at one of 200 partner universities, in over 40 countries abroad and in Canada. Student exchange also makes it possible for students from the partner universities to study at UBC. Student exchange programs are Senate-approved, reciprocal exchange programs based on institution-to-institution agreements with partner universities, both international and Canadian.

UBC students selected to participate remain registered at UBC, and in most cases pay only their regular tuition or program fees and student fees to UBC (some partnerships require that students pay comparable tuition directly to the partner university). They also remain eligible for UBC awards, scholarships, and financial aid. Students pursue academic programs that are planned in consultation with their faculties.

Academic courses taken at the host institution transfer to a participant's UBC academic program, thereby allowing a student to fully integrate the opportunity into their degree and meet graduation requirements. While on exchange, students take courses that are planned in consultation with their program. Many universities in non-English-speaking countries offer courses in English.

Information sessions are held throughout the year. Partner information is available online. The website also links to partner universities and explains the selection and application process. For more information on eligibility requirements and application process, please visit Go Global.
