Your Orientation Begins Now

We can't wait to meet you!

Save the date for fall 2024! Orientation programming begins August 26 with the opening of the Welcome Centre and will continue throughout September!

We encourage you to begin your journey by taking time to complete the five short Pre-Arrival Modules created just for you and explore the New Students section of our website.

Topics for modules include:

  • Services and Supports available from Western International
  • Academic Values in Canada, Academic Culture and Unwritten “Rules of the Canadian University Classroom”
  • Finding Housing and Tips for Living in London
  • Important Immigration Regulations for International Students
  • Health Care, Health Insurance, and Staying Well in Canada

Whether this is your first experience living in Canada and apart from your family and friends or you’ve spent time here already, your first year at Western will mean adjusting to a new cultural, social, and academic environment. All new students are encouraged to review these modules and participate fully in International Student Orientation.
