Eligibility Requirements

Go Global & Partner University Eligibility Requirements

Students should review the Exchange Eligibility Requirements on the Go Global website to see whether they qualify to participate in an exchange.

In particular note:

  • You must have at least a 70% average the last full-time semester prior to submitting your application. As first-year students do not have final grades until April, all exchange offers will be conditional on achieving a 70% average in final first year marks (released in May).
  • You need to be a UBC student in good standing (e.g. not be subject to academic or non-academic discipline).
  • Law students must have an overall average of 70% in the year that they are applying for exchange.

Individual partner schools may have different requirements than those listed above. For example, the University of Hong Kong require a greater average to apply. Please check the partner pages on the Go Global website to ensure you meet the correct eligibility requirements.
