International Engagement

UBC is a key player in tackling and solving global problems. We make our international connections a priority. Our faculty are engaged in research collaborations around the world, and half of our research publications involve international partners.

UBC is North America’s most international university, with students, faculty and staff from across the globe. Our student exchanges and joint-degree programs complement our international research partnerships to connect us with top research talent worldwide.

Institutionally, we partner with 10 of the 15 top-ranked universities in the world and have partnership agreements with more than 300 universities and research institutions in more than 50 countries..

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