Global Seminars & International Service Learning

Global Seminars allow UBC students to step outside of the classroom with a UBC faculty member and a small group of their peers to experience hands-on learning opportunities in international contexts. Each program is unique in terms of location, course content, length, and cost. Courses taught are location-specific – the learning and the location are interconnected.

UBC’s International Service Learning (ISL) program allows you to contribute towards important projects led by community partners around the world. By taking part in ISL, you connect your academic studies with real-world experience. This opportunity fosters meaningful connections with communities around the world and will help you discover the local impact of global issues. You will also become engaged in a continuous cycle of learning, action and critical reflection.
