We are so excited you are interested to join our MSVU family, a community of equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility. We understand that the process of becoming an MSVU student and preparing for life in a new country can be overwhelming, but we are here to help you every step of the way.

First, you need to know how to become an MSVU student, and then, before departing from home, it’s important to well prepare for your academic journey at MSVU and new life in Halifax, Canada. Our goal is to help you smoothly transition to the new environment, so we offer a New International Student Orientation (NISO). This orientation is designed to provide you with important information about the campus services, the city, and Canadian culture, as well as opportunities to meet other international students and make new friends.
