Peking University Globex Summer Program Online

About the Program

The Globex Julmester program offered by the College of Engineering at Peking University has moved online, welcoming international students from all over the world! Study for an intensive 3-week period during the summer in courses taught by internationally-renowned faculty. The Globex program offers topics in science and engineering as well as limited coursework based on the study of China and its peoples. Courses will be mostly synchronous, delivered through Canvas and MS Teams, and supported by PKU's Center for Excellent Teaching and Learning. Schedules will vary as its international instructors adjust for different time zones.

Final program details will be published by the partner institution that manages this program and are generally updated on their program webpage. However, you must apply through Go Global to be considered for this program and ensure you follow the appropriate transfer credit process.

Tuition and Fees

There are a limited number of exchange spaces available for students in the Faculty of Applied Science only, 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.

Students from all other faculties (non-engineering) will pay tuition directly to the partner university.

In both cases, the partner institution may charge other program fees such as application fees, cultural and social activities, or other costs associated with hosting this program. Please check the partner webpage for details of program costs.

Award Funding

Students participating in this program for summer 2021 are automatically considered for a $100 Go Global Virtual Learning Award. Please see the International Learning Awards page for details.

How to apply to a Go Global Summer Program

  1. Complete your research about the summer abroad program and ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria (UBCV / UBCO), including any partner or program-specific requirements. 
  2. Apply online by the Go Global deadline listed above. 
  3. Please submit only one application for the summer program of your choice. If selecting a program that has limited enrolment (e.g. "Summer Exchange"), include a second choice as a backup on the same application by selecting the "Add Item" button.
  4. Where applicable, select the "Summer Exchange" experience to pay tuition to UBC or the "Study Abroad" experience to pay tuition to the partner institution. If you select "Summer Exchange", be sure to include a backup choice.
  5. If you plan to do multiple experiences (e.g. more than one summer program, a term exchange and a summer program, etc.), please submit a separate application for each experience. Our team will review your application(s) and if successful, will nominate you to apply to the partner institution(s). 
  6. Pay the Go Global Fee when prompted, after the application deadline.
  7. If successfully nominated by Go Global, you will receive instructions on how to apply to the partner university.
