ELIGIBILITY AND TIMING

Terms offered

Term 1Term 2Full year Term 1 + 2 (UBC Term 1 start)Summer

Who can go?

  • Please know that you will be applying to the UC System, not a specific campus
  • Campus assignment is determined by the University of California Admissions

Term dates

Individual campuses operate on different semester systems: 

  • Most UC campuses operate on the quarter system: 10 weeks of instruction
    • Fall quarter (September – December)
    • Winter quarter (January – March)
    • Spring quarter (April – June)
    • One full academic year is three quarters
  • UC Berkeley (UCB) operates on the semester system: 15 weeks of instruction
    • Spring semester (January – May)
    • Fall semester (August – December)
    • One full academic year is two semesters
  • Note: Students that attend UC campuses for the FALL Quarter only will receive less than a full UBC semester's worth of credits; if a student takes 12 units at UC they will only receive 8 UBC credits; if a student takes 16 units at UC, they will only receive approximately 10 or 11 UBC credits (exception: Berkeley which is on the Semester System)

Timing

  • What term to list on your Go Global Application when applying to general UC campuses:
    • Term 1 = Fall quarter only: September – December
    • Term 2 = Winter quarter & Spring quarter: January – June
    • Full Year = Fall quarter, Winter quarter, & Spring quarter: September – June
  • It is not possible to take only the Spring Semester
  • Students will indicate their top 3 choices to the UC system once nominated by Go Global and accepted into the UC system
  • Please note that placements at Berkeley and UCLA are given to a very small number of students (2-3 spaces per year), therefore students only interested in these two campuses should have a cumulative average of 85% or higher (please speak to a Go Global advisor regarding this)
  • View the UC student guide for most inquiries related to studying at a UC campus

Summer program

Courses + Transfer Credits

Credits

Course equivalency formula

  • Quarter units x  2/3 = UBC credits
  • Berkeley = same as UBC credits
     

Passing grade

D- = 0.7 Grade Points

Credit transfer process

The transfer credit process takes approximately 16 weeks following each submission deadline. You should allow sufficient time to meet important deadlines that may affect you (e.g. application for graduation, registration in courses that require prerequisites that you took on exchange, entry to a major/honours program, etc.)

Tuition, Fees and Awards

Exchange tuition

  • 15 credits or equivalent full-time program fee per term, paid to UBC
  • Some exceptions may apply

Scholarships + awards

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’ for Federal 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.

Additional fees

  • Each campus may have some additional student service fees which may vary according to campus
  • All students attending UC – both domestic and international — are required to have health insurance, therefore you will be automatically enrolled in the UC Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) and this health insurance premium will be charged to your UC student account
  • If you wish to be covered under a plan other than the SHIP plan, you must request a waiver (exemption) within the announced deadlines - please ensure that you research the SHIP waiver requirements to ensure that your insurance from home meets all requirements (please note that the exemption is not automatic and the exemption may not be approved)
  • UC health insurance coverage, waiver information and effective dates are available on the Reciprocal Exchanges web page - Pre-arrival Instructions - See Campus-Specific Instructions and Information
