The Douglas College International (DCI) Mentorship program welcomes and orients new international students to Douglas. As a new international student, you will be matched with a Senior Mentor, a returning international student. Your Senior Mentor will share advice from their personal experience, help you navigate the Douglas College website, direct you to student services and more, all from their unique perspective as an international student.
To be eligible for this program, you must be a new international student registered in at least one academic course, be willing to participate in program events (such as the Meet and Greet and end-of-semester wrap-up) and respond to requests for feedback.
You’ll be contacted a few weeks before the start of semester with details.
