Providing Your Transcript to UBC
Your exchange university will send an original transcript directly to Go Global, who will then keep a copy and provide the original to Susan Morin, Director, Student Academic Services. You may wish to order your own copies for your records and/or order a transcript to be sent directly from the partner university to Susan Morin to ensure she receives it in a timely manner.
Susan will review your academic transcript from your exchange and ensure that the approved number of credits is transferred to your UBC record. Specific courses and the individual grades obtained in the courses do not appear on your UBC transcript, only the name of the partner university and the total number of transfer credits.
Due to different term end dates at partner universities, students who complete their exchange abroad during their final semester of law school will graduate in November rather than May.
For graduating students, Susan will prepare a letter for the requisite law society stating that you have completed all the requirements to graduate in November so that you may start your articles or bar course prior to November graduation. Once your Law degree is posted on your UBC transcript, you must order, through the Student Services Centre website, an original UBC transcript to be sent to the applicable law society.
Note: Some partner universities (especially those in southern Europe) take weeks or months to issue a transcript. If you are a third year student intending to commence articles immediately on completion of your exchange, you may wish to consider a school with a short transcript issuance time. Susan Morin can advise on the general timeframe for when she receives transcripts from partner universities.
Applying for Graduation
Susan Morin, the Director, Student Academic Services, will notify students when the on-line application to graduate will be available. Students must apply to graduate in order for their degree to be conferred and to receive their diploma.
