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 during the Fall and Winter terms 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 throughout the first two months of the term.

Please view the Fall 2019 International Peer Mentoring Program Schedule for more details.

This program is separate from the Student Association's International Peer Mentorship program.

Who is this program for?

The International Peer Mentoring program is currently available for international students enrolled in full-time programs based at Burnaby Campus during their first term at BCIT.

This program has reached capacity for the Fall 2019 term. Applications for the Winter 2020 term will be accepted starting in December 2019.


Volunteer as an International Peer Mentor

Continuing BCIT students in full-time programs may apply to volunteer as International Peer Mentors. It’s a unique opportunity to volunteer in a leadership role within the BCIT community and to make a real difference in the lives of new international students – all while having a lot of fun and enjoying fantastic benefits!

If you are interested in volunteering as an International Peer Mentor for the Winter 2020 term, please send an email to international.mentoring@bcit.ca and we will send more details in November.
