International Services for Students (ISS)

International Student Support (opens in new window)  (ISS) strives to support the experience and transition of members of TMU’s international community to TMU and Canada. Our mission is to share power so that people realize their infinite potential. We live out this mission by  providing transformational support in order for students to thrive at TMU. 

ISS supports student engagement and success through:

• Immigration Support: Immigration advice from licensed International Student Advisors including group immigration advising, 1-on-1 advising, drop-in advising and status letter support for immigration processes.

• Mandatory Check-in Appointments: This is a great opportunity for International Student Advisors to get to know students on a 1-on-1 basis. These appointments will assist them in reaching their personal, academic, and professional goals.

• University Health Insurance Plan: ISS issues UHIP cards for international students and can assist with  claim forms for reimbursements and insurance coverage questions.

• Cultural Support: Glocal Links is an intercultural dialogue program that develops cultural awareness, builds global networks, and promotes acceptance and appreciation of different cultures.

• Social Support: ISS monthly peer socials connect members of the international community at TMU to facilitate out of classroom learning and build friendships in order to enrich the student experience. 

• Family Support: The spouses, partners and families of our students are a vital part of the TMU community. ISS provides resources to help students and their family members navigate life at TMU and in Canada.

• World University Service of Canada (WUSC): This program supports the sponsorship of student(s) each year through the Student Refugee Program. There are also a few events throughout the year to raise awareness on global migration issues, world education, and human rights.

• Financial Support: The ISS emergency bursary is intended to assist international students who are experiencing unanticipated financial need and require support in meeting personal and/or educational expenses.

Tri-Mentoring Program (TMP)

The Tri-Mentoring Program (opens in new window)  assists you with your successful transition into university life. As a first-year student, you will be matched with an upper-year student mentor in your program of study who can provide social and cultural support during the academic year. Through individual appointments, the Tri-Mentoring Program can help you create strong scholarship and bursary applications as well as map out your involvement on campus outside of your faculty. The Tri-Mentoring Program can support you to explore various aspects of your identity to help you find your sense of belonging in the TMU community. Visit the Tri-Mentoring Office in POD 54. 

Equity and Community Inclusion (ECI)

Our Equity and Community Inclusion (ECI) Office (opens in new window)  provides you with the access to the experiences, tools and resources that will provoke you to reflect on different life experiences and understand the role you can play in representing TMU’s equity, diversity and inclusion values in and outside of the classroom. The ECI office offers workshops, networking and mentorship opportunities, access to local and international conferences, and facetime with industry professionals and employers. To learn more about supports and services offered, visit us at ENG 273.

CEN 100 Student Design Competition 

First-year engineering students will have a chance to enter in their first university engineer competition through the CEN 100 course. This yearly competition challenges students to reverse engineer on a theme idea selected for that year enabling them to think creatively as they redesign an existing product either to improve upon its current functionality or to modify it for a new purpose. Teams of up to 12 first-year engineering students are given three weeks to come up with an idea, an innovative solution, and develop their pitch presentation. The top eight teams will then be entered into the final stage of the competition where expert judges will determine the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winning teams.
