Research programs for graduate students

Graduate students are eligible to complete a research placement at one of many of UBC's partner universities. Working with their UBC supervisor, students are responsible for arranging for a host supervisor at the partner university.

Placements can be of varying lengths (from a few weeks to eight months). Graduate students are eligible for International Learning Awards to support their research placements.

Benefits

  • To advance your graduate or PhD research and thesis completion through exposure to new skills, expertise, and equipment
  • To become globally aware, to grow and develop as a person, and to gain cross-cultural understanding
  • To connect meaningfully with the people in your host country; experience life abroad as a student, not just as a tourist

Eligibility

  • You are a UBC student in good standing
  • You have completed at least one year of full-time studies at UBC before going abroad
