Internationalizing Your Degree At Home

Get to know a different culture first hand by working with a network of NU students who volunteer their time to help our international students adjust to life in Canada and at NU. Providing international students with a network of peer-support, opportunities to explore our city and province, and assisting in their campus integration, it is our student mentors that truly shape the experience of our students. Join the International Study Mentorship Program and help our international students feel right where they belong at NU.

Work with a group of internationally minded individuals both on-campus and across Canada who believe that “Education Changes The World”, and have a passion to give back globally. For more information visit
