UR International Student Services - International Peer Advisor Program

The "International Peer Advisor Program" is an important service for both current and future UR students.  A very popular program, many enroll and benefit from it, both as Advisors and Advisees.

 

The role of an International Peer Advisor is to connect with, and provide valuable information and support to, new and current international students (International Student Advisees) at the University of Regina. As a resource for navigating the University,  International Peer Advisors are current domestic and international students who are motivated to assist new, and current, students with their successful transition to their new life at the U of R.
