Office of International Activities
The Office of International Activities is a home away from home for all international students. All international students should feel welcome here and can seek assistance with all types of concerns.
As well, All BU students are encouraged to visit the office for information on exchange programs, travelling, working, or studying abroad.
This year, over 200 international students from more than 30 countries are attending regular and English language studies at Brandon University. We provide an Orientation session in the fall and continuous international student advocacy, including referrals to counselling and advising services. We help all international students who need assistance with transportation from the Winnipeg International Airport to Brandon University.
Brandon University maintains partnership and exchange agreements with institutions in many countries. Brandon University has recently received membership in the National Student Exchange, a consortium of over 200 universities in the USA, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Guam and Canada.
The Office of International Activities houses the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program, which provides instruction to approximately 30 students each term. Three thirteen-week sessions are offered each year, beginning in January, April and September. The EAP program also offers social activities, language and computer labs, and internet and email access. For more information, please visit the English for Academic Purposes website.

If you require assistance, the OIA has an approved list of ICCRC immigration consultants that we can refer you to.
