There are many opportunities offered by Go Global for students to spend a term or entire year studying abroad.
If you're considering going on exchange and are eligible for US loans, contact an Enrolment Services Advisor to understand your financial options before you apply for exchange.
Check the US Federal School Code Lists to confirm that your partner university is also eligible to provide Title IV funds.
If you choose to do an exchange at a school in the US, you could lose your eligibility for Direct Loans for the rest of your program. We do not recommend going on exchange to a US school if you require federal loans.
If your partner university is Title IV and not located in the US, UBC can assess you for Direct Loans while you’re on exchange.
If your partner university is not Title IV, you will not be eligible to receive Direct Loans for the period of your exchange. You may want to consider private loans like Sallie Mae instead.
