For UBC students visiting other universities, credits completed while a visiting student at another University must be approved for credit at UBC by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Faculty of Graduate Studies prior to registering at the host university. UBC students can visit other universities using the Western Dean's Agreement, Graduate Exchange Agreement and other exchange agreements at Go Global.
Partner institutions in the Western Deans' Agreement are:
Partner institutions in the Graduate Exchange Agreement are:
In order to be eligible to use these exchange agreements, the student must be in good standing in his or her graduate program at the home institution and must have paid all current and back fees. Further, the student must demonstrate that the course is an integral part of the student’s graduate degree program.
Note: Students in the MEng program are not eligible for the WDA and Graduate Exchange Agreements:
Please note that the request must be fully approved at least two weeks prior to the start of the course. If the form is not received and approved in time, the student may not receive permission to take the course. In addition, the fee waiver is not available retroactively. Please ensure that Western Deans’ Agreement and Graduate Exchange Agreement forms are processed quickly to ensure that students are not denied registration in a course or required to pay fees unnecessarily at the Host Institution.
