"The most rewarding part of my study abroad experience was meeting a lot of people from all over the world, expanding my perspective, and the best professors from whom I learned so much, not only academically, but also personally."
-Yaneth Guerra (2017)

Each year, a group of qualified students from Mexico's Tec de Monterrey are selected to study at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver and Kelowna, Canada.

As a Tec student, you quickly become part of the UBC community and participate in a range of learning experiences to further your academic, cultural, and international competencies. Credits that you earn at UBC are easily transferable to Tec, and most regular credit courses from the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Land and Food Systems, the Sauder School of Business, and the School of Engineering (the Kelowna campus) at UBC are open to Tec students. The program makes it possible for you to combine school, travel, and life-learning in a supportive environment. If you've ever considered studying abroad, this is your chance!
