International experiences

Build independence, initiative, and adaptability by introducing yourself to the culture of another region.

Why get an international experience?

  • Develop your international network and make connections globally
  • Apply your classroom knowledge to a real-world setting
  • Have fun and explore a foreign culture

It demonstrates something about your grit and your ability to face different situations and to thrive.

Go Global

Go Global offers numerous options for UBC students to travel across the world while participating in meaningful learning opportunities.

Travel abroad and explore a different culture while you:

  • Study for a term, or during summer
  • Conduct research
  • Take a course with UBC students and professors 

We're living in a globalized world - be an active part of it.
