Peter A Allard School of Law

Outbound Exchange Students

The Allard School of Law at UBC is pleased to offer our students the opportunity to participate in one of our many exchange programs.  Students may explore opportunities at law schools in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.  We have one of the broadest offerings of partner institutions of any law school in Canada.

Allard Law students may spend one term or a full year in their second or third year of studies attending law school at a UBC partner institution.  Students pay their tuition and student fees to UBC and receive credit for their exchange courses at UBC.

Go Global is the key resource at UBC that develops and facilitates international learning opportunities through academic exchange, group study programs, research and service learning. Law students apply through Go Global to participate in an exchange and Go Global advisors adjudicate the selection process. Once students are selected to participate in an exchange program, Go Global facilitates the exchange experience for the student (including applying to the partner institution and providing information about studying in the host country). 

The law school’s role in the exchange process is to be involved in establishing law-specific exchange programs, and to provide advice to students on:

  • Timing and factors to consider when contemplating an exchange
  • Law degree requirements and their impact on exchange
  • Review and approval of courses at partner universities
  • Transfer of course credit from the partner university to UBC
