First launched in 2011, UBD's Global Discovery Programme (GDP) is designed to offer international students an opportunity to experience student-life in this culture-rich kingdom, in an academic setting which is stimulating, challenging and progressive.

Courses offered under GDP are:


 Start Dates

The Global Leadership Summer School (GLSS)

One of the most important and engaging components of these courses is that learning is not limited to the classroom.

Through an innovative course incorporating experiential learning, and explorations of the communities and habitats in and around Brunei, students become participants in, rather than mere observers of, this dynamic yet well-preserved environment.
