BCIT International Peer Mentoring

Connect with other new BCIT students and get a chance to learn from a BCIT student mentor!

We are pleased to offer International Peer Mentoring to help new international students transition to life at BCIT and make important social connections. In this program, each International Peer Mentor will provide guidance and support to a small group of new international students. Please note that this program is separate from the Student Association's International Peer Mentorship program.
