International Students

A Diverse and Inclusive Community

A Canadian Community

Laurier is proud to offer a truly Canadian university experience for international students.

At Wilfrid Laurier University, we’re all about community. We care about the different stories and backgrounds that make us all unique, and we see community as the thread that ties us all together. Bring your culture and unique identity to your university education – all while you experience Canadian traditions and culture.

"Being a student from a different culture makes it hard to make friends and meet new people who are going through the same thing. Laurier International helped me by organizing different events that introduced me to new people, cultures and things. Laurier International has become a family for me, which has made my four-year journey feel like an adventure on which I am not alone. Laurier has become my home away from home."

– Gursimar S., Business Administration, India
