Whether visiting the Faculty as an exchange student or here for a more extended stay as a degree-seeking student you’ll find a welcoming experience. Hear from two of our international students:
The offices of York International provides international students with a great variety of support services. Check out the links for Current International Students, Visiting Internationals and Future Internationals.
SOS Peer Mentoring through Bethune College specifically supports international students. In recent years Delisile Diamani (video above), herself an international student from Swaziland, has been a peer advisor to other international students.
- The Career Centre can help! Students can sign up for a range of workshops, services, events and resources to help improve communication skills and prepare for the work environment. Additionally, full-time international undergraduate students pursing an Honours degree (currently only in biophysics, physics and astronomy) be eligible to participate in the York Internship Programs.
- York International provides information about employment regulations for working in Canada, both on-campus and off-campus. International students can also gain employment through the International Student Employment Fund (ISEF) program. The York International Internship Program (YIIP) provides work abroad opportunities for interested students.
