BUTEX Scholarship

The Go Global award $1000

All students accepted to Go Global for Exchange, Research Abroad, or Study Abroad programs are automatically considered for this award. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you'll be notified of your award after you're accepted to Go Global and after you get nominated to apply to the partner university.

Additional awards

Students who are eligible for awards may receive one UBC or UBC-affiliated international learning award. If you're eligible, you are always offered the highest-value award. Unless stated otherwise, you need to meet eligibility criteria set out by the University Senate regarding awards.

Check out international learning awards and eligibility.

Information for US students

If you are a student from the United States, please check the US Department of Education Lookup Tool to ensure that any partner institution you wish to attend on Exchange is Title IV ‘eligible’ forFederal Student Aid for the year in which you intend to study there. For institutions outside of the US, select “Foreign Country” from the “State” dropdown menu.

If you attend an eligible institution, then you may receive Title IV federal student loans while on Exchange.

If you attend an ineligible institution:

  • You will not be eligible for US federal student loans,
  • You may invalidate any US student aid you have previously received for your studies at UBC,
  • You may be required to immediately begin repaying your US student loans, and
  • You may not be eligible for any future US student aid for the remainder of your studies at UBC.
Housing

Types of accommodation available

Off-campusOn-campus

Housing notes

The University Accommodation Office will endeavour to allocate accommodation to students studying at UM for a Full Year, Semester One or Semester Two from University Halls. Students attending for one semester only will not be able to choose a specific Hall or the type of accommodation but can indicate a preference between a Self-Catered or a Catered Hall, although this cannot be guaranteed. Students should bear in mind that the cost could vary from between £50 - £120 per week.

The first semester contract terminates at the end of January and the full cost for the semester will need to be paid even if a student is permitted to finish at UM in December. The second semester contract terminates in mid-June.

Applications for accommodation will be sent with the application material and must be submitted to the UM International Office and not sent to the Accommodation Office.

Please note that UM is not responsible for the allocation of accommodation and once the allocation has been made, students must deal directly with the Accommodation Office or the allocated residence for any further enquiries.

UM is unable to assist with private accommodation arrangements but Manchester Student Homes is a useful contact.
