Study Abroad

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 (and paying SFU tuition and fees). For instance, our Study Abroad program (a.k.a. international exchange) is a great opportunity for you to travel, meet new friends, experience different cultures and enhance your global perspective.

We offer students the following Study Abroad opportunities:

  • Full-time exchange: spend one to three terms studying abroad at partner schools, taking the equivalent of 12 SFU units or more (depending on eligibility).
  • Part-time exchange: these are usually shorter than a full semester, typically lasting 4-6 weeks (i.e. Summer Programs).
  • Field Schools: Field Schools can best be described as an extended field trip, or an off-campus delivery of SFU courses for a group of 10 - 20 students, directed by an SFU instructor. You’ll undertake a combination of coursework, assignments and field studies that integrate learning with the location.
  • On Campus Opportunities: these provide students with a global perspective, while still on campus. A typical example would be a semester-long cohort program with students from multiple 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.
