International students
Be ambitious. Be Purple. BU.

We are thrilled that you are planning to study at Bishop’s University. Please allow us to extend a great, big Purple welcome to you! We hope you will enjoy your time with us here in Quebec, and that you will quickly start to feel that Bishop’s University is your “home away from home.”

Studying in another country, especially if it means you are moving far away, can seem a little scary. Making the transition to a new place often involves a lot of unknowns, and many new things to learn and do: as an international student, you might need to explore new places, create new routines, meet new colleagues and classmates, make new friends, learn new languages …

We understand all of this, and that is why we want to do everything we can to help ensure your transition to life at BU is as smooth as possible. We know that once you start to feel at home here, you’ll be ready to take advantage of the incredible opportunities your Bishop’s experience has to offer you.

In this section of our Web site, you will find a variety of information and links to help you get through this busy, exciting time with relative ease. There is information about the BU application process, immigration procedures, your arrival in Canada, student life at BU, and much more.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bishop’s University soon!
