International Education Week

International Education Week banner

Every year, education institutions, governments, and not-for-profits join together to celebrate international education around the world for one full week. Please join the University of Waterloo in celebrating our international students, staff and faculty from November 21-25, 2022.

This week serves as a great opportunity to recognize and promote the value of education abroad and at home, while bringing global conversations to campus. The University of Waterloo plans to join stakeholders from over 100 different nations in celebrating this important week by showcasing the merits to international education through a variety of programs, events, collaborations, debates, discussions, and an array of activities for the University of Waterloo community.

Interested in hosting an event for International Education Week? Waterloo International is currently seeking interest from student groups, academic support units, departments and faculties interested in hosting international education-themed event during this week. We have funding opportunities available for events - request for funding.
