Students from institutions that have a Student Mobility Agreement with UBC may conduct research through the research exchange pathway. To ensure that a student is eligible for this program and that the application is processed properly and quickly, it is important for any prospective students to read the guidelines below carefully.
To perform research at both the undergraduate and graduate levels at UBC, it is the individual student’s responsibility to obtain approval from a UBC faculty member to serve as the research supervisor for the duration of the research time spent at UBC. Students wishing to conduct research at UBC under the research exchange pathway need to be nominated by their student's home university. If their home university does not provide a research nomination or administrative support, students may be interested in conducting research through the Visiting International Research Student (VIRS) pathway.
