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.
