International Student Advising

The International Student Advisors at the International Centre provide confidential support, guidance and advocacy for international students.  We provide assistance with student immigration applications.  We also provide support related to academic and cultural transition, settlement, financial issues, as well as provide referrals to other services and resources both on and off campus.


Book a Virtual Appointment with an
International Student Advisor


Book an appointment via Microsoft Teams to speak to an International Student Advisor for support with a variety of services. We can help you with your study permit, co-op work permit and post-graduation work permit applications, as well as provide  assistance with non-immigration topics. 

Note: If you are not able to make your scheduled appointment, we ask that you reschedule or cancel your booking using the link provided in your booking confirmation or by emailing us. We have limited time slots and would like to offer appointments to other students who may be available at that time.

If you have not yet applied for admission to the University of Lethbridge and have questions about admission requirements or the application process, book a virtual appointment with an International Recruitment Officer. International Student Advisors cannot provide enrolment support.
