International Students

When our international students choose our programs in LA&PS, they are not only getting a world-class education in one of Canada’s largest and most multicultural institutions, but they are also getting access to various supplementary programming to ensure academic success, professional and personal growth. Most of all, our international students become part of our vibrant global community with LA&PS as their home away from home.
