International Student Orientation

Students volunteering

Whether you are beginning your studies in Canada or from abroad, all new undergraduate and graduate international students are encouraged to participate in our Summer 2021 International Student Orientation online and connect with international peers on IESC’s official OWL site for new students.

  • Western and Canadian culture
  • Culture shock and tips for cultural adaptation
  • Academic Values in Canada
  • Unwritten Rules of the Canadian Classroom (virtual & in-person)
  • Health, Wellness & Safety information for international students
  • Immigration information and reminders
  • Getting and staying connected with your #GlobalWesternU community
