Over 350 students from 56 countries around the world made their first steps at UPEC this fall. The Welcome Desk set up from the beginning of September until the end of October made the international students arrival easier.

Organized by the Office of International Affairs, the event included one-on-one support at the Maison des langues et des relations internationales, guided tours of the Campus Centre and mail des Mèches as well as an institutional presentation webinar.

The appointment-based support provided by student advisors 5 days a week made it possible to guide international students through administrative and installation requirements in a more personalized manner. Meanwhile, the campus tours and the webinar offered a global vision of the institution and its services, along with many practical tips.

Once again, we wish a warm welcome to our new international students!
