Advising services for international students

International Advising (for Current Students ONLY)

Whether you're looking for help with a personal or academic issues, study permit & visa applications, Douglas International offers a variety of services to help you succeed.

Email advising is the preferred method of communication for our team as we are able to process high volumes that do not require immediate action. Please email us with your name, email, student ID, and program and specific questions and we will try to reply within 2-3 business days.  ​​​​​​

Online drop-in advising is available for all students but specially designed for time sensitive situations. We offer online sessions as needed for 15-20 minutes on a first-come, first-served basis. You can register up to 10 minutes prior to each drop-in period. 

Please note our office will open at 10:30am on Wednesday, March 1, 2023.
