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. Before attending the program, you will be asked to disclose how many credits you are taking in the summer program so that you can be assessed the appropriate tuition. If you enroll in more credits than you claim then you will be assessed for the additional tuition.

If not selected to use an exchange space, students will pay tuition directly to the partner institution.

In both cases, 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.

Canadian Learning Initiative in China

This program is eligible for additional funding through the Canadian Learning Initiative in China (CLIC). For details, please visit the CLIC website or contact go.global@ubc.ca.  Students intending to apply for CLIC funding for this program must:

  • apply for the "Summer Exchange" option
  • submit their Go Global Summer Abroad application by the December deadline to be considered

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.
