The International Centre is located at 142 Telus Centre. Through its programs and services, the Centre helps to encourage an international dimension on campus while providing vital assistance to the international students enrolled at UAlberta. Housed in the Centre are two key programs that welcome volunteers: the Global Education Program (headquarters) and International Student Services.
Not only is the Global Education Program (GEP) active in International House, the GEP also organizes and sponsors campus-wide events throughout the year. International Week, our main annual event, is the largest annual extra-curricular educational event on campus. The Week explores local and international perspectives on global issues. We welcome over 100 volunteers to help make it happen, and this is a great way for you to be involved with the international life on campus.
International Student Services provides a range of services to the international student community, including students in degree programs, incoming exchange students, visiting students and English Language Program (ELP) students. Services provided include: orientation, advising, emergency loans and bursaries, administrative assistance, advocacy, social events, the peer program, and more.
Finally, the Education Abroad Program (EAP) administers over 100 formal study and work opportunities with 35 countries around the world and universities in Canada. Be sure to take a look at the Education Abroad Resource Library (EARL) which is located at 8920 HUB Mall. Visit University of Alberta International online for more information.
