This is the most important event for international students at the Mount—and the best part is that International Student Orientation is free! All new international students must register and attend.

Orientation gives you a great head start on what it’s like to live in Canada, on what to expect when studying at the Mount, and of course on meeting new people from all over the world. You’ll have a chance to find your way around campus and to discover what the Mount and the great city of Halifax has to offer.
