How to apply

All structured research abroad programs involve two parts: applying to Go Global to request nomination and submitting an application to the partner university.

Go Global reviews all applications for nomination on a rolling basis and encourages students to submit their Go Global applications as soon as possible.

1. Review the project list or available labs on the partner website to ensure there is a project or lab you are interested in.

2. Apply to register your interest with Go Global online. Students can apply to up to 3 programs on one application and are asked to submit a brief statement of interest.

3. Go Global will update your online application within 2 weeks of submission with detailed instructions on how to submit your partner application and your UBC transcript.

4. Each partner application may request different supporting documents. For Lund,  prepare to have the following documents ready to include with your partner application:

  • Official transcript (provided by Go Global)
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Motivation Letter

5. Once you've collected all documents, submit them to Go Global by the deadline outlined in the instructions you receive from our office. Our team will forward all applications to Lund University for review

Go Global Fee and Withdrawal Policy

If you are accepted by a host university for a structured research program, you will be asked to confirm you participation in the program and you will be charged the Go Global fee of $415. The fee will be posted to your SSC account following confirmation of your acceptance. Go Global will contact you with complete information on how to pay the fee.

You will not be able to make payment in-person at Brock Hall (Vancouver), University Centre (Okanagan), the Go Global office or your financial institution. You cannot pay this fee directly through your financial institution’s online banking interface as payments made through this method will only be counted towards your tuition and your Go Global fee will remain unpaid.

You will receive a $93.25 refund if you withdraw from the program in writing to your Go Global Advisor before March 31, 2018. If your notification of acceptance from the host university is after the refund deadline, then you have two weeks from date of acceptance to withdraw and receive a partial refund. Please consult with your Go Global advisor if you have any questions.
