International Student Events

Almost a quarter of our student population is made up of international students. And we love to celebrate that diversity. As an international student, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to socialize and network by participating in one of our international student events.

Upcoming Events:

For upcoming events for current students, check out the Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts for our Students Acting for Global Awareness (SAGA) student led group or check the list here.

Upcoming Sessions:

The following help sessions will be held on MS Teams (students need to sign up MS Teams with their name@smu.ca email address and login using that account during the session time). To sign up for a session, please send your name, A number and your SMU email address to international.centre@smu.ca to register. Only students who send required information will receive a confirmation and invitation.

Please note, only sign up for the session if you need to apply for the following permits at the current time as it will be completed during the session. If you do not need to apply for it right now, but have questions regarding your permit, please join the Q&A Drop In Hours hosted weekly.
