Welcome to Canada!

Enrol in I-Start, the international orientation program designed for all new international students studying at Carleton University. In this free online mini-course, you will receive resources and information that will help you transition successfully to student life at Carleton and in Canada. This orientation has been designed to meet the needs of all international students, including undergraduate, graduate, exchange, and study abroad students. Topics include: ISSO services, the University Health Insurance Plan, immigration advising, student life in Canada, navigating Ottawa, and much more!

Key Features of I-Start

  • Go at your own pace. The course will be live until April 2021 so you can revisit the content when you need it.
  • Get your questions answered. During live events, get answers to your questions during our Immigration Q&As and Global Chats with current Carleton students.
  • Get credit. Students who complete the course will be eligible for credit on their Co-Curricular Record, a system Carleton uses to record involvement.

Please keep your eye on our ISSO events page for additional upcoming live events to support your transition, including Immigration Question and Answer sessions specifically for new students and Global Chats with Global PALS: live online chats with current international students.
