Support and Services

Laurier International

Laurier International is a dedicated resource for international student services and a support network for your growth and development. The International Student Advisors and student staff team are there to help with your adjustment to studying in a new country.

Through Laurier International, you can get support with traveling to Canada, Canada’s immigration rules and regulations, and your academic transition to university in Canada. You can also get answers to your questions about life in Canada and connect with upper-year students for the student perspective on Laurier.

A Supportive Community

University life is an exciting time, but it can also bring new challenges and changes. No matter what you encounter, from the moment you accept your offer until you graduate and beyond, we’ve got the support and services you need.

Before You Arrive

We have a comprehensive support program to help you prepare for life as a Laurier student. There’s a lot to do before you arrive on campus, and we provide support with:

  • Pre-arrival communications that outline your next steps and include helpful resources and support with your move to Canada.
  • Online orientation specific to new international students that you can work through at your own pace to learn more about the Laurier experience.
  • Emails from our International Student Leaders, upper-year students who will provide guidance and personalized resources from a student perspective.
  • Laurier 101 programming to help with your transition to university-style learning.

English Language Support

To study at Laurier, you’ll need to have strong proficiency in English to benefit from university instruction presented in English.

If you don’t meet our English-language requirements, you can choose to pursue an academic English program offered by one of our education partners, including the Academic Transition Pathway (ATP) program available at Wilfrid Laurier University College.

The ATP program is designed to provide you with the skills and support you need to excel in your chosen degree program at Laurier and will help you meet your language and academic goals. This program is completed before you begin your undergraduate studies at Laurier.
