Who is a Newcomer Student?

Newcomer Students are those who have lived in Canada for a short period of time and can include Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents.

International Students are those who require a study permit to pursue education in a country other than their home country.

Note: While all international students may be newcomers to Canada, Niagara University acknowledges that not all newcomers may be international students.

Our Newcomer & Family Support program provides essential services and resources to facilitate a seamless transition to life at Niagara University and within the surrounding community for all newcomer students and their families.
