The welcome desk is getting a makeover for the start of the new school year by going hybrid.
International students will be able to go directly to one of the 5 welcome desks on their campus from August 29 to September 2 and will then be able to make appointments with local partners directly at the agency or with the welcome team.
The menu for this flagship back-to-school event: individual assistance with all your administrative procedures, meetings with partners and orientation on the campuses.
