Beedie Abroad Network

Open to all SFU Beedie students, as well as incoming exchange students, the Beedie Abroad Network (BAN) provides social and cultural programming, academic mentorship and greater connections to the study abroad community.

SFU Beedie students are matched with inbound and nominated students, and receive formal mentoring and coaching training so they can be advocates, guides and sources of information throughout the Study Abroad experience.

BAN members on exchange represent SFU Beedie Abroad on social media and have the option to participate in promoting exchanges to SFU Beedie students upon their return from abroad.


Applications are open. Fill out the application form below to become a Beedie Abroad Network Mentor in the Spring 2023 semester.

Suite of Study Abroad Award Recipients

SFU Beedie students on exchange are required to join the BAN program when awarded a Beedie Study Abroad Award or other funding from the Suite of Study Abroad Awards. These BAN members have higher level of responsibility within BAN and receive coaching and training from the Office of International Program; in addition to Basic Marketing and Promotions requirements, award recipients are required to participate in the BAN program in one of two streams: Advanced Marketing and Promotions or BAN Mentorship.
