We have established two types of Visiting/Exchanging Studentships, one for students from our European and North American partner institutions to travel to and research in East Asia for five months, and the other for students from East Asia to spend one semester (four months) at either UBC or a partner university in North America or Europe.

Through structured mentorship, students will become skilled and confident in working with host institutions and employees in unfamiliar surroundings. These scholarship opportunities will improve language proficiency, sensitivities to and appreciation of different cultures; but more notably, through these short-term experiences abroad, our students will be expected to create and expand upon international networks that will prove invaluable for their own future career development.
