Supporting Our Students
We're here to help
Immigration and Mobility Advisor
A former international student, Lajipe Sanwoolu combines her first-hand experience with her training as a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant to advise students on immigration, student permits, employment permits, family visas and other matters. She also supports relationships between international students and employers, providing education about international hiring and dispelling hiring misconceptions.
Student Success Coach for International Students
All undergraduates at McMaster have access to free academic advising. Andrew Staples helps international students connect with the academic counselling and resources best suited to their individual needs, advises them one-on-one and runs workshops and webinars on academics, housing and life in Hamilton.
International Undergraduate Students Program Co-ordinator
Ana Pereira, an immigrant herself, helps students adjust to their new lives at McMaster and in Canada through transitional services, personal development and the International Student Buddy Program. She organizes workshops, coffee nights, outings and events for international students to enrich their McMaster experience.
Additional student support services
Giving our students a safe and supportive learning environment is our top priority. All McMaster students are welcome to use the services offered by the Student Success Centre, Student Wellness Centre and the Equity and Inclusion Office.
