UBC is one of Canada's leading institutions for global learning and international growth. Our goal of strengthening connections with Latin America has led to a special partnership with Mexico's Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM), or Tec de Monterrey (Tec).
Through the Joint Academic Program, Tec students can spend up to one year at UBC and take undergraduate courses in the Faculties of Arts, Commerce, or Land and Food Systems. Certificates of specialty are also available for students who want to focus in a field of study. Likewise, UBC students are encouraged to attend courses as an exchange student in the various Tec campuses available through Go Global: International Learning Programs. Visit Go Global (students.ubc.ca/about/go-global) for more information.
These programs encourage students to engage in cross-cultural learning and develop a greater understanding of the world outside their own country. The Tec de Monterrey-UBC House residence opened September 2003, with the mission of furthering interaction among domestic and international students. All UBC students, and Tec students who intend to study at UBC, are encouraged to apply for residence in Tec de Monterrey-UBC House.
