Going On Exchange
The possibility of going on exchange to a foreign country is an exciting one, and is one of the many benefits of attending UBC. While the Co-op program coordinates international work terms, it is also possible to go on exchange to another University to study. It's a great opportunity to see another part of the world, and to take courses that may not be offered at UBC.
Applied Science students have the option of visiting one of several universities, including institutions in Australia, India, Belgium and the UK. To be eligible, you must be a full time student with an average of 70% or higher the year you apply. You also must return to UBC for at least one semester after your exchange program.
Coming to UBC on Exchange
Visiting exchange students can study at UBC for one or two terms (semesters), and are allowed to take Mech electives, but not Mech 2 or lab-oriented classes. Course credit obtained by studying at UBC can be counted towards your degree from your home university. Studies start in either September or January, depending on the term you choose to register for first.
More information on exchange programs at UBC can be found on the Go Global website.
