Formal exchange programs facilitate the exchange of undergraduate students with other universities in Canada and abroad. These exchanges allow students to experience a different cultural and academic life, and receive credit for courses successfully completed. Undergraduate students normally in their third year of studies are eligible to spend a semester or two on exchange. Graduate students are also eligible. Interested students should see Go Global (students.ubc.ca/career/international-experiences/exchange-study-abroad/exchange-eligibility#graduate-students) for further information.
Opportunities for student exchanges at Canadian universities exist at McGill University, University of Toronto and Université de Montréal. Opportunities also exist at University of Guelph, which has an exchange agreement with the Faculty.
Go Global offers eligible students the opportunity to spend one or two semesters at a variety of partner universities throughout the world, including the University of California, University of Melbourne and Queensland University (Australia), University of Auckland (New Zealand), University of Copenhagen (Denmark), Wageningen University (Netherlands) and Swedish Agricultural University.
