International Student Advising


Tips for Success

One tip that I would offer new international students starting their program at UVic is... To learn about available UVic resources and communities and reach out for support as needed.

One of the best ways for international students to get connected during their time at UVic would be… Get involved with various academic support programs and student groups.

Student Success Tip: Stay organized, be mindful, and ask for help as needed.


Hi everyone! I am an International Student Adviser on the team and received my Regulated International Student Immigration Adviser (RISIA) designation in 2017. My passion in supporting students with international pathways in Canada stemmed from my personal experience as a former international student and first-generation immigrant in Canada. I am very grateful to be in this role where I can support international students to maximize their Canadian experience.
