Building the bridge from Waterloo to the world

iBASE volunteers and students.

Learning comes in many different shapes and forms. Some students learn best through reading, some learn best through group study sessions, and some may learn best through hands-on experience. With exams coming up, it’s important to note that everyone has different learning styles and the University of Waterloo offers a plethora of resources for students to learn, grow, and thrive within their environment.

Creating global connections through campus community

Finding your place in university is one of the most difficult things about being a student, especially when Canada isn’t your native home. The University of Waterloo is home to more than 6,600 international students from more than 120 countries and we at UWaterloo strive to make the transition for international students as easy as possible.
