Graduate Student Handbook
SENSSA (the SENS students' association) has prepared a fantastic handbook for our international students. Moving to a new country can be fun, exciting, intimidating and challenging all at once. Our hope is that this handbook will help you negotiate some of the mysteries of living in your new country.
The International Student and Study Abroad Centre (ISSAC) provides resources and services for international and exchange students, including information on immigrating and applying for residency, obtaining a social insurance number (SIN), volunteering on campus and improving your English.
Additionally, the College of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies has a wealth of resources for international students, including information on funding, admissions and language requirements.
