Some students scheduled to study or research abroad for one term find that one term just isn’t enough. By the time they start to develop a routine and feel like they fit in, the semester is almost over.
If your agreement permits, you may be able to extend your international learning experience. You need to contact your Go Global advisor first and ask for permission. If there is space for extension in your agreement, your Go Global advisor will contact your host university and see if your request can be accommodated.
If you are extending your time abroad, you need to take care of the following:
If you intend to reduce your study or research abroad experience from two semesters to one, notify your Go Global advisor. Go Global will then let your host university know.
If you are reducing your time abroad from two semesters to one, you will also need to take care of the following:
If you have any questions or concerns, you can always contact your Go Global advisor. However, it may be more efficient for you to contact someone at your host university. The staff at your host university’s exchange office are equipped to handle any issues you may face.
Don’t forget to pay your registration deposit and register for courses for your return term at UBC. You can make these transactions directly on the Student Service Centre (SSC). You will receive a reminder email with information on your registration date.
Students enrolled in an exchange program can be eligible for scholarships in their upcoming period of study. For further information on future scholarship eligibility, contact Student Services.
