The best way to start your time at Durham College on the right foot is by attending the free mandatory International Student Orientation. Please book your flight so you will arrive in time to attend Orientation.

This is the day that you will receive essential information on how to achieve success throughout your studies and upon graduation, including information on health insurance, setting up a bank account, immigration, and learning about the many resources available to support you during your studies.

Topics covered during International Student Orientation are not the same as the topics covered during Program Orientation -- you should plan to attend both orientations.

International Student Orientation 2019

As an international student from Nigeria, I was overwhelmed with planning my trip and the thought of starting a new phase of my life in another country far away from home was equally daunting. With the online mini module, I was able to create a checklist of things to do before, on and after arrival in Canada. From the course, I got important information on the required documents to show the immigration officials at the border, the free airport pickup offered by the school, health insurance, housing options available on or off campus, working while studying and being wary of scams. I am indeed grateful to Durham College for putting in place a program to guide international students, especially during the Covid 19 pandemic period. I am glad I got the opportunity to win the $1,000 prize. Thank you.
