Incoming Students! Apply to be a mentee!

The Centre for International Experience (CIE) invites incoming international undergraduate students new to Canada to take part in the Bridging Connections Peer Mentorship program this Fall 2023.

Are you an incoming first year international student looking for advice as you come to UofT? Do you want to connect with upper year peer mentors and learn more about what the University of Toronto has to offer? Apply to be a mentee with the Centre for International Experience (CIE)!

We are here to help smooth your transition into the University of Toronto, get paired up with an upper year international student in August and learn how we can support you with navigating a new city, country, university and understanding what resources and referrals are available to you! Bridging Connections will include weekly group mentorship from August 21st – October 6th, 2023 to get you settled in, and then we will move to monthly themed discussions and social outings/activities until March 2024.

This is a wonderful opportunity for first year international students to engage in building community, developing communication and intercultural competencies, and learn of the resources and supports available to you on campus.
