Summer classes have just started and the International Centre was pleased to help welcome our new international students at both campuses.
The International Centre ran sessions at North and Lakeshore to welcome our new international students (check out the photos on the International Centre’s Facebook page and a short video on our YouTube channel). The #NewHawk16 (as we call the newcomers) attended the International Students’ Welcome at North Campus on Thursday, May 5 and a special session for Global Business Management students at Lakeshore Campus on Monday, May 9.
The Welcome events were led by Matthew Keefe at North and Matthew McDonald at Lakeshore, who talked about Humber College, academic conduct, getting around campus/surrounding areas, health insurance, counselling services, and housing. They also provided a highlights on the variety of services provided to international students, such as International StudentServices, Global Opportunities, the Global Citizenship Certificate, events, trips and International Education Week. The international team also discussed possibilities of working while studying in Canada and how to apply for permits and visas. Although only a few programs start during summer, Humber College and the International Centre have prepared a calendar full of activities, workshops, trips and other events. See the all the upcoming events here.
As mentioned by Kim Smith, Associate Director of International Admissions and Student Services, “We want all the international students to feel embraced by Humber community and have a great experience while studying at Humber. The International Centre is here to help!”
