Go Global Office of Global Engagement

Application process


  1. Complete the online application. After you are nominated by Tec de Monterrey, our system will send you an email prompting you to log in to the Student Application Portal and submit your online application. After submitting, you will receive a confirmation email with your UBC student number. (Check your junk/spam folder for our email!) You will need this number for all steps in the application process, and during your time at UBC. 
  2. Submit your application documents. Prepare and provide supporting application documents (see section "Application Documents Checklist,” below). Make sure that your International Programs office submits all required documents to UBC that correspond to the round you’re applying to by the deadline (Round 1: April 1; Round 2: September 15)  
  3. Accept your offer. Once Go Global has reviewed your application documents and you’ve been accepted, you will receive a link to accept your offer. Make sure to accept your offer once you open the link because it expires.  
  4. Create a Campus-Wide Login (CWL) account. Follow the instructions under "Student Accounts (CWL Account Upgrader)" to create a UBC CWL account. The CWL system provides access to many of the university’s online systems. 
  5. Complete the online housing application. All students in the Tec-UBC Joint Academic Program are guaranteed on-campus housing, but space is in high demand and students must apply by May 1 for a September start or by Oct. 1 for a January start. Rank your residence choices on the application. While UBC makes an effort to place you in the residence of your choice, placement is based on availability. 
    1. Go to the Student Housing and Community Services Online Service Centre and log in under “UBC New Applicants, Students, Staff with CWL ID.” 
    2. Log in with SecureLink.  
    3. Select “Student, Applicant, External Student Portal” to request your SecureLink. 
    4. Select “Application” and then “Apply.” 
    5. Select the application for the year/session you are coming to UBC: e.g., 2023/2024 Winter Session (23W). (Note: Select this option regardless of your study term. We will inform the housing office whether you are coming for one or two terms because there is no place for you to indicate this on the application.) 
    6. Under "faculty," enter “Go Global Program, year 1.” 
    7. There is a $50 non-refundable application fee. Pay your deposit via Visa or MasterCard only. 
    8. If you have questions about your application and payment, contact UBC housing directly.
  6. Accept the housing offer and pay the housing deposit by the deadline. The UBC Housing office will send an offer to you by email. The housing deposit (about $1,000 for shared units and $1,200 for studios) must be paid by Visa or MasterCard.  
  7. Register with UBC’s Centre for Accessibility, if applicable. Students with disabilities and ongoing medical conditions must register with UBC’s Centre for Accessibility. We strongly recommend beginning this process at the same time as your application.
