Oct 13 & 14: Focus groups for international students

Are you an international student who is willing to share your experiences, strategies, and tips to support your peers in their future academic journeys? Join this interactive focus group session to support the development of an online resource for first-year international students who intend to study at a postsecondary institution in Ontario.  
All focus groups will take place over Zoom. Both undergraduate and graduate international students are welcome to participate. For your time and participation in the focus group, you will receive a $10 e-gift card.  
The focus group discussion will ask you about:  

  • Resources that you found helpful in navigating your questions and needs as you began studying in Canada;
  • Academic and/or cultural challenges you faced and the strategies that you used to navigate them;  
  • Unexpected successes, opportunities, and surprises that you experienced during your academic journey;  
  • Tips and encouraging messages that you’d like to pass onto future international students.  

Option 1: Wednesday, October 13th, 5pm – 6:30pm 

Option 2: Thursday, October 14th, 12pm – 1:30pm 

Registration will take place on the Career and Co-Curricular Learning Network (visit clnx.utoronto.ca and look under the Events & Workshops Calendar for Academic Success). Please contact yaseen.ali@utoronto.ca with any questions.
