Study with the brightest students in the world
UBC’s International Scholars are a community of engaged and supportive young leaders. These scholars enrich UBC and the global communities with their diverse perspectives, their involvement, and their innovative initiatives.
Earn a globally recognized degree
At UBC, International Scholars earn a globally recognized degree and study with classmates who become part of their vast alumni network. In addition, the iWork Program helps International Scholars achieve their career goals after graduation.
Study abroad and make a difference
International Scholars have the opportunity to go on study-abroad exchange programs — often to emerging countries to address local challenges in health, agriculture, social infrastructure, education, and sustainable development.
Dedicated advising services
A dedicated International Student Advisor is every International Scholar’s first point of contact. Scholars are supported by a network of staff from across the faculties who will support their academic, personal, and career development.
