UB is launching a study abroad program for the next five years that will help its students learn the most about cultures around the world.
The program will cover the United States and three other countries: the U.K., Germany, and Canada.
University President David D. Roberts said that in the past five years, the university has developed more than 2,000 undergraduate and graduate students who are preparing to work in the U, U.S., and Canada to further their academic and professional interests.
He said this initiative is the result of a collaboration with the UBC Department of Cultural Affairs and will be led by the Department of International Education, which will be responsible for advising on the program.
Roberts said that the program will be in the works for two years, but he did not elaborate on how the first six months of the program would be spent.
The first phase of the study abroad will focus on students from the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, and the U-K.
“This is an important part of our mission, which is to make students who have come from diverse backgrounds to better understand the world around them,” Roberts said.
This will be the first of a number of study abroad programs that the university will undertake in the next few years, Roberts said, adding that it will be focused on teaching students about cultural practices, geography, politics, science, and business.
According to the university’s website, the study overseas program will start with the students working in the United K of the United Kingdoms (U.K.), Germany, Germany and Canada in early 2017.
UBC said that a portion of the first four years will be spent in the three countries, and students from these countries will be able to participate in various research projects, including an internship program, in the years following the completion of their studies.
While UBC will not be providing the first quarter of the five-year program to students from each country, it will offer the students the chance to learn about these countries’ culture through the programs.
A university spokesperson said that some students who study abroad for their first four semesters will be required to return to their home countries to complete their studies and graduate.
Students who choose to study abroad through the study-abroad program will have access to the online learning platform UBER, which includes courses on cultural practices and a virtual reality (VR) experience.
