Jumpstart Program

All international students are welcome!

Participating in at least four sessions will make you eligible to apply for the International Student Integrity Award worth $1000 (there are 15 awards available)!

Peer Mentorship Program

Are you new to NorQuest and Canadian culture? Do you want to connect with others, build your community, and gain confidence? 

Join our International Peer Mentorship Program! When you join as a mentee (a new student), you will be matched with a peer mentor (current senior student) and meet with them live, via video call or messages. Participation is free.


What are the benefits? You will focus on personal growth and skill development while expanding your personal and professional network. Your mentor’s guidance, support, knowledge, and experiences will give you insight into how to succeed in academic, social, and work environments.

How do I join? To get started, take these three easy steps: 

  1. Register on MentorCity
  2. Build your profile
  3. Wait to be matched with a mentor

It won’t take long to find a match—there are many great mentors participating from a variety of programs and backgrounds.


What are the benefits? You will help make a student’s journey more interesting and enjoyable. It’s a rewarding and fulfilling role! Plus, you will improve your communication skills and learn how to provide guidance to others.
