Get SFU Ready: New International Undergraduate Student Q&A
About this event
This session is for new international undergraduate students who will begin their studies at SFU in Fall 2022. This includes students coming to SFU from outside Canada, transferring to SFU from FIC or another Canadian post-secondary institution, and coming to SFU from a Canadian high school.
Please join us at this session where the presenters will cover key topics for new international students at SFU, and give you a chance to ask any questions you have as you prepare to join our SFU community — no matter where you are in the world!
SFU staff and faculty are also welcome to attend. If you are an SFU staff/faculty member, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
The topics covered in this session will include:
- Immigration (study permits and visas)
