It is possible that you have lived in Canada for a while or your whole life and English is your second or an additional language. The University of Saskatchewan Language Centre is a great resource and offers ESL courses at various levels.
The International Student and Study Abroad Centre (ISSAC), can be one of your most important supports during your time at the U of S, because the ISSAC is dedicated to fostering a welcoming, globally aware and engaged community at the U of S for students, staff and faculty.
There are over 1300 International students from more than 82 countries studying at the U of S, and the centre provides support to all of them and their families. Beyond the many programs and services for all students at the U of S, some of the guidance ISSAC offers includes:
- programs and services specifically for international students that will help to ease adjustment to university life and culture
- Global Connections Student Committee which is committed to promoting multiculturalism
- a lounge which is open 7 days per week and is the location for various events.
If you are new to Saskatchewan and Canada, the Saskatchewan Immigration website provides some terrific advice.
If you have any questions that aren't answered by either this website or the ISSAC website, you can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, and it will be answered either by an ISSAC student coordinator or an ISSAC International Peer Assistant (IPA).
