Find a partner school


Choose where you want to go on Exchange

1. Pick three schools

Use filters to narrow down the list, which school abroad offers the experience and learning that you want. If you can’t find your area of study, broaden your search. Most schools are open to all students. Check the "Who can go" section in the overview of the university you choose to see if there are restrictions. Apply to Go Global with your 3 choices.

2. Apply to Go Global

Where you get to go will depend on if you meet the eligibility requirements for the Go Global program, how many spots are available at the school, and how many UBC students want to go to the same place. Go Global matches you to one of your 3 choices and nominates you to apply.

3. Apply to the school

The wait is around 6-8 weeks after the December deadline before you hear back. Once you are matched and nominated to a university, you must apply to your host university. You'll get an email from Go Global with instructions on how to apply directly to that school.
