Orientation & Welcome Programs

Studying in a new country can be both exciting and overwhelming. While you are adjusting to a new academic environment and new academic policies, you will also have to adjust to a new culture, new customs, new foods, a different climate, and to being away from your family and friends. 

Orientation Program

To help international students with their transition to Canada and the U of M, the International Centre offers orientation programs at the beginning of each term. Our programs are an effective and efficient way to get the information you need and connect with other international students going through the same experience.

Did you miss our International Student Orientation on August 28 or August 29? Come to our Late Orientation on Thursday, September 13th.
