Formal exchange programs facilitate the exchange of undergraduate students with other universities in Canada and abroad. These exchanges allow students to experience a different cultural and academic life, and receive credit for courses successfully completed. Undergraduate students normally in their third year of studies are eligible to spend a semester or two on exchange. Graduate students are also eligible. Interested students should visit Go Global for further information.
Canadian Exchange Programs
Opportunities for students exist at the University of Alberta, University of McGill, the University of Quebec, the University of Toronto, and Université Laval. These universities participate with UBC in the Canadian Scholars Exchange Program (CANEX). There are also opportunities for exchange with the University of Guelph, which has an exchange agreement with the Faculty.
Go Global offers eligible students the opportunity to spend one or two semesters at a variety of partner universities throughout the world, including the University of California, University of Melbourne and Queensland University (Australia), University of Auckland (New Zealand), University of Copenhagen (Denmark), Wageningen University (Netherlands) and Swedish Agricultural University.
