International Student Experience
International Student Experience is a hub for supporting the development and learning needs of undergraduate and graduate international students by allowing you to seek support and advice during your studies here at the University of Guelph, supporting your individual transition needs, and connecting you to resources on- and off-campus.
Although you may be looking forward to studying at Guelph and living in Canada, it can be challenging to leave your home, family, and friends for a new community, and enter a foreign climate and culture. We are here to help you find your place on campus, manage the transition in a healthy way, and make being away from home easier.
