Students without borders

Students Without Borders is a WUSC program that enables Canadian university and college students to participate in exciting, volunteer learning opportunities in South America, Africa, and Asia.

Students without Borders (SWB) offers three different types of placements: volunteer, internship and co-op. All placements last between 6weeks and 4months in developing countries around the world.

By enrolling in a directed studies course under the mentorship of a professor in your field, you should be able to gain academic credit towards your UBC degree.

If you are interested in SWB and/or other other overseas opportunites through WUSC (such as the annual international seminar that takes for 6 weeks in a different developing country) come to the
WUSC UBC information session:
Date: Monday, October 1st from 5:00-6:30 pm

Location: Brock Hall, Room 2001 (upstairs on the second floor)

Looking forward to seeing you there!
