International Engagement

UBC is North America’s most international university. A key player in tackling and solving global problems, we make our international connections a priority: we partner with 10 of the 15 top-ranked universities in the world.

Our students, faculty and staff come from around the world. Almost half of our research publications involve international partnerships. Our satellite offices in the Pacific Rim and India serve to strengthen our international presence.

Student exchanges and joint-degree programs complement our many international research partnerships, and connect us with top research talent worldwide.

It’s no wonder we've earned an international reputation as a world-leading hub of academic and cultural excellence.

*The UBC International Office recently transitioned to the Vice-President, Academic. A new web site is in development. In the interim, please visit for an overview of UBC’s international activities.
