How it works

1. Pick three schools

Use filters to narrow down the list, the rest is really about what YOU want to learn, see and experience. Can't find your area of study? Broaden your search. Most schools are open to all students. Check "Who can go" in the overview of the university to see if there are restrictions. Apply to Go Global with your 3 choices.

2. Apply to Go Global by December 17

You'll need to meet Go Global's requirements first. Where you get to go will depend on 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.

How 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'll get an email from Go Global with instructions on how to apply directly to that school.
