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.

Please note that this program is separate from the Student Association's International Peer Mentorship program.

We are currently planning the Fall 2019 schedule. Check back here for updates by mid-summer and in the meantime you can see the Winter 2019 International Peer Mentoring Program Schedule [PDF] for a general idea of what type of activities are part of this 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. Capacity is limited and registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
