Global Representative Program

The Global Representative program is designed to connect newly accepted international students with current University of Waterloo students from their homeland. Current students are also encouraged to contact Global Representatives during their time at Waterloo. Global Representatives are a great source of information and can tell you about their first-hand experiences when it comes to answering questions about:

  • what it's like to study at the University of Waterloo
  • what you can expect when you get to Waterloo
  • how life in Waterloo and Canada is different from your home country

For any immigration or documentation related questions, please email an International Student Advisor at immigration.sso@uwaterloo.ca
