International Student Peer Mentorship Program

IC Peer Mentorship_web header


The International Student Peer Mentorship Program connects new Dalhousie international students with upper-year international students to help them transition into their new life at Dal!

This International Centre program is designed to provide new international students in the Dalhousie community with support, engagement, community, and a welcoming place to connect with others. Peer Mentees are matched with Peer Mentors who have already gone through the first-year experience.

Peer Mentors will support new international students (Peer Mentees) with the following:

  • Tips on how to be successful at Dal
  • Opportunities to connect with others, make friends,
    and be engaged in the Dal community
  • Your own personal guide to life at Dalhousie
  • Information about available services and supports
  • And much more!

If you are a new international student and you want to be connected with an International Student Peer Mentor, complete the application form today! 

Note: Applications for the Winter 2021 semester close on January 22. Program space is limited, so be sure to sign up soon!
