UCalgary Global Online
Expanding the imagination of Study Abroad
UCalgary Global Online (UGo) programs bring cross-cultural learning and engagement with the global community into an accessible online format. These programs combine aspects of traditional "Study Abroad" with intercultural training in the UGo student cohort, which includes both UCalgary students attending virtual programs abroad and international students studying online at UCalgary.
Opportunities for UCalgary students
As a virtual exchange student, you will have the opportunity to take online classes from UCalgary's partner universities around the world for credit towards your degree.
There are options to add 1-2 classes in your regular UCalgary courseload, or you can do a full semester courseload through another university.
Doing a virtual internship not only means that you will be working online with a company or organization in another country but may also include career counselling, business skill training, and other activities hosted by your internship provider. Some internships are for credit, and all can bolster your resume.
As a virtual research student, you will have the opportunity to work with leading researchers from UCalgary's partner universities around the world on remote placements.
In addition to the semester programs above, there are online resources still available from our virtual Summer 2020 options - click here to learn more!
Please note that as long as UCalgary travel restrictions remain in place, travel is not permitted.
Opportunities for international students
If your university has an exchange agreement with UCalgary, but you aren't able to physically travel to Canada, you can become a virtual exchange student and take UCalgary classes online from your home country. You can take a full semester courseload online, or just a couple UCalgary classes to supplement your studies at home.
