The Faculty actively participates in the formal university-wide exchange programs. Undergraduate students who earn a 70% average over 27 credits in the year prior to their exchange are eligible to travel to one of the international or Canadian exchange partner institutions to study for up to one year. Graduate students are also eligible and can transfer up to 12 credits towards their UBC degree. Interested students should see Alternative Study Options for further information or contact the Faculty directly.
