We at the International Student Centre are pleased to offer virtual drop-in services to international students via Zoom.
When you follow the link to access virtual drop-ins during service hours, you will be placed in a waiting room until an ISC staff member is able to assist you. Please have your BCIT student ID number ready as well as any other documents that are related to your questions (study permit, co-op work permit, etc.). You may also contact us via email or telephone.
