Universities looking to early connections to support international students

September 28, 2017

“Universities are boosting the services of their international centres and connecting earlier” in response to growing international enrolments, writes Suzanne Bowness. Some of these earlier connections include airport pickups, special orientation sessions, and ongoing events designed to integrate international students into the campus community. Some schools have also begun offering pre-departure orientation sessions to both international students and their parents before these students arrive in Canada. The author offers examples of how a number of universities are working to make the transition to Canadian PSE as smooth as possible. University Affairs
