International student orientation is not enough

A combination of factors results in international students falling behind at Canadian post-secondary institutions:

Starting school in catch-up mode

Student only have weeks (often days) to adjust to new responsibilities and life in Canada before starting their first day of post-secondary classes.

Navigating a new academic system

Adjusting to cumulative grading, LMS systems, student conduct policies, academic integrity standards, and applied learning is challenging. Especially while learning how to navigate life in a new and unfamiliar country.

Becoming self-directed in Canada

Moving our of your parent’s house and boarding a plane to an unfamiliar country is daunting. Learning how to balance student responsibilities and a balanced healthy life is essential to academic success.

Prepare your international students in their home country — before they depart for Canada.
