From the Middle East? Choose Dalhousie University
As a student from the Middle East, here is some information you'll find useful:
Halifax's large Middle Eastern community
When you enrol at Dalhousie, you're joining a diverse and welcoming student community. And although Canada's official languages are English and French, Arabic is the second most commonly spoken language in Halifax.
As a first-year Dalhousie student, you are guaranteed a place to live in one of our on-campus residences if you apply by June 30. In residence, everything you need—from your meals to your classes—is close. And our variety of housing options, including an all-female house and plenty of private rooms, means you can choose the accommodation that is right for you.
Enjoy all four seasons
In Nova Scotia, you’ll experience four distinct, moderate seasons. Because we’re next to the Atlantic Ocean, our winters aren’t too cold and our summers aren’t too hot. And each change in season offers new, exciting outdoor experiences—from snowboarding to sailing, there’s something for everyone.
Your academic future starts here
When you choose Dalhousie, you’re getting world-recognized programs taught by award-winning professors and researchers.
