Additional Requirements or Restrictions

While students must meet the UBC Go Global eligibility criteria, UC Berkeley does not stipulate any further GPA requirements for students applying to the Berkeley Summer Sessions.

Course Credits

The number of courses and credits you enroll in will vary depending on your preferences and which session you attend. For visa purposes, it is required that students register in full-time studies (usually minimum of 2 courses, depending on session selected). Please note that 1 UC Berkeley unit = 1 UBC credit.

Transfer credits are only granted for courses with academic content and may not be granted for cultural activities or intensive language courses. Please speak to a departmental advisor if you have any questions.

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.
