Once Go Global has nominated you for exchange and matched you to a partner university, you must apply for admission to the partner university.
You will receive a nomination e-mail which will indicate which partner university you have been nominated to attend. At a later date, you will receive an additional e-mail which will outline the requirements for the application to your partner university. The application deadline will be indicated in this e-mail.
- Some universities request online applications, while others require paper applications.Do not send any paper application material directly to the partner – partner universities will only accept a hard copy of the application from Go Global.
- If your application was done completely online, then please email your Go Global Advisor to confirm that you successfully submitted it.
Application requirements vary from one university to another. While some may be as simple as completing one form, others may require documents such as medical exams or proof of funds (i.e., a bank statement).
In some cases, students will be asked to include their study plan and even apply for accommodation at this stage. It is the student’s responsibility to provide all documents, except UBC transcripts, required for the partner university application.
Supporting documents must be delivered in person or by mail to Go Global by the deadline indicated in your nomination email. If you are not sure which documents you need, or when to submit them, contact Go Global.
If you are required to submit photos, please print your name on the back of the photo. Only high-quality passport (or equivalent) photos will be accepted.
Selecting courses at your host university
Be sure to review the transfer credit process prior to selecting courses at your host university.
Go Global will order and forward your UBC transcripts to your partner along with your supporting documents.
If you are a transfer student from another post-secondary institution, you will need to submit official transcripts from all of your previous institution(s) with your Go Global application. Go Global will forward these to the partner university as well.
Letter of acceptance
After Go Global submits your application to your partner university, you will receive a letter of acceptance (also called a “confirmation of enrolment” or “letter of admission”) from the partner university. This letter may be sent directly to you or to Go Global. If you receive the letter directly from the partner university, please inform Go Global.
If you have not received this letter two months before the start of your term, contact Go Global.
