Study Abroad

SFU Beedie Study Abroad Program

As an undergraduate at SFU Beedie, you can choose from of a variety of international experiences, all while earning credit towards your BBA. Our Study Abroad programs offer opportunities for you to travel, expand your network, experience different cultures and enhance your global perspective.

We offer students the following Study Abroad opportunities:

  • Full-time international exchange: Spend one to three terms studying abroad at partner schools, taking the equivalent of 12 SFU units or more (depending on eligibility).
  • Short-term international exchange: Study abroad at partner schools for less than a full semester. Typical programs last 4-6 weeks and often take place during the Summer.
  • Field Schools: Travel to another country to learn outside the classroom about topics enhanced by the resources (cultural, environmental or academic) of your destination. You'll take these SFU courses with a group of 10 - 20 students, directed by an SFU instructor.
  • On Campus Opportunities: These international programs provide you with a global perspective while still being on campus. A typical example would be a semester-long cohort program with students from multiple international partner schools, coming together to study a similar topic.

Exchange helped me become more of an international business student. I now have a better grasp of what it is like to be taught business in a Chinese university and I can now better understand how to conduct business with Chinese companies and business leaders. It also gave me the opportunity to practice the mandarin I learned at SFU.

I kicked off my travel experiences with a 3-day long bicycle tour to Mons Klint, a section of 120 m tall chalk cliffs on the island of Mons, south of Copenhagen. And boy, did it ever rain! Coming from Vancouver though, this was nothing new. So we carried on, cycling through rolling fields and tiny towns, sleeping in an old Danish man's backyard, pushing our bikes through herds of cows, and filling the air with laughter along the way. It was the perfect beginning to what has been blissful happiness ever since. With plans in place to explore the island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea, to see the fjords of the western coast of Norway, and to hike glaciers in Iceland, I can hardly wait for the experiences that are yet to come.
