With finances and concerns about degree progression identified as the top barriers to education abroad, UBC has taken an innovative approach to its programming in creating greater access to unique international learning opportunities. Through an informative and interactive session, we will feature special programs and initiatives designed to address traditional barriers to student mobility. We will also look at underrepresented populations, initiatives to facilitate participation from particular groups including indigenous students, and collaborate on ways of making learning abroad more accessible.
