About Us

International and Graduate Affairs Building

The International & Exchange Student Centre (IESC) is part of the Western International portfolio. Caring and knowledgeable international student advisors and program coordinators are here for students as they begin their journey as an international student and throughout their time at Western.

Our international student advisors are also licensed immigration professionals who can assist international students with questions about arriving in Canada, extending their study permit, planning to work post-graduation, and other visa and permit inquiries. 

Programs and services offered by Western International and the IESC team help students develop skills, learn about key services and supports, and connect with friends and community.
