Course Credits

Out of the three interdisciplinary courses offered, students will choose two credit-bearing and graded courses. Courses will explore concepts and perspectives in The Great Ideas, Ecological Enlightenment, and Ethical and Social Issues in Genomic Science.

Each course is worth 3 AU credits. 1 AU credit = 1 UBC credit.

Optional cultural courses are also offered, but transfer credit will only be granted for the two interdisciplinary courses.

Tuition and Fees

There are a limited number of exchange spaces available, which will be assessed on a competitive basis. Under exchange, students pay UBC tuition for the number of credits they enroll in for this program.  If not selected to use an exchange space, students will pay tuition directly to the partner institution.

The partner institution may charge other program fees such as application fees, housing costs, field trips, cultural activities, or other costs associated with hosting this program. Please check the partner webpage for details of program costs.
