Global seminars

Want to study abroad, but prefer to travel and study with a group? Is there a particular region or topic you want to learn more about that isn’t currently offered through other UBC programs? A Global Seminar might be the right choice for you.

Global Seminars are each unique in terms of location, course content, length, and cost.

Imagine the amazing learning opportunities…studying geographical migration patterns in Spain and Morocco or learning about sustainable food systems in Italy.

Global Seminars offer you the chance to take UBC credit courses taught by UBC faculty members in an international location. These programs run in the summer but can still allow you to return home and have a summer job.

Come to an information session to learn more. Information sessions—held in mid-October—will be announced here.
