Global seminars

Students sitting in tall grass for their lecture while looking over the ocean during their Global Seminar experience.

Want to study abroad, but prefer to travel and study with a group? Global Seminars are each unique in terms of location, course content, length, and cost. These programs offer you the chance to take UBC credit courses taught by UBC faculty members in an international location. Imagine the amazing learning opportunities…studying migration in the Azores, or traditional Mayan land rights in Mexico.

2024 programs - open to all students

Deadline is Tuesday, December 5 – see individual program pages for application details.
