  • You can participate in our programs as early as 2nd year. Start planning now!

    • There are a variety of international opportunities available which include exchanges, internships, short-term programs, field courses, and more, many which include academic credit.

Brock International Services Events & Programs

Here at Brock International Services (BIS), our mission is to ensure all Brock students – International and Canadian – get the most out of their studies and experience. We do this by organizing events and programming as well as offering services to students.

Fun Fact: All of the events we host are open to all Brock University students at Brock including domestic and international!

This program matches International students with upper-year mentors to create a sense of community and be a guide to all things Brock. Students will be put in a group where they will participate in weekly check-ins, activities and opportunities throughout the year. Your mentors will also connect you with student life, introduce you to services, and assist in building a network of peers on campus.

Global Peers Program

This program pairs up Brock students who are interested in learning or teaching a new language. Are you interested in learning about different cultures, while helping a fellow Brock student practice their conversation skills in a new language? Perhaps you’re interested in learning a new language? If so, you should sign up for our Conversation Partner Program.
