Incoming international students should take into account the following procedures and programs in addition to the housing and administrative responsibilities applicable to all students.
Before You Arrive
Because international students require specific documents in order to study in Canada, it is very important that you follow certain steps as soon as you have accepted your offer from York University.
Please visit York International – Before You Arrive for more information.
The International Handbook is designed to help you navigate the process of coming to Canada and settling into your new home at York University and the city of Toronto. Please read all of the information in this guide in order to be fully informed about your responsibilities as an international student studying in Canada.
The Handbook is divided into two primary sections: Before You Arrive, and While You are at York. In addition, the Money Matters and Immigration Information sections are designed to provide you with a quick reference point for some of the most common issues faced by an international student.

International Peer Mentor Program
The International Student Peer Mentor Program is designed to support incoming international students in their transition to York University, Toronto and Canada. International Peer Mentors are current international students or domestic students with international experience, who have made themselves available – in person and online – to new international students (International Mentees). The mentors offer cultural guidance and information about student life at York University and day-to-day life in Toronto and Canada.
