Mount Allison is home away from home for students from around the world.
We want to help parents and families support prospective and current international students from the admissions process through to graduation.

It's important to keep up to date with immigration information, and to apply for study permits as soon as possible.
International students who will study in Canada for longer than six months must apply for a study permit.
|Temporary Resident Visa
|International students from some countries may also need a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) before coming to Canada, which can be applied for at the same time as the study permit.|
|Custodianship arrangements||Custodianship arrangements may be required for minors 17 years of age and older. An immigration officer may request one for your student. This is done on a case-by-case basis before entry into Canada. The legal age of majority in New Brunswick is 19 years or older.|
Tax and immigration services
The International Centre offers workshops and help sessions for students with questions about Canadian tax regulations and immigration document application/renewal processes.
Programs and services
The International Centre is home to an array of programs and services that are designed to make the transition to academic and social life at Mount Allison an easier one for international students.
The goal of Mount Allison's International Centre is for students to do more than survive; we want students to thrive.
Programs and services for international students include:
- international mentorship program
- academic support
- health insurance
- graduation preparation series (GPS)
Fee payment options
University fees can be paid by bank transfer directly to Mount Allison or through a student’s Canadian bank account (which can be activated upon arrival in Sackville).
International students who would like to work during their time in Canada should review the Government of Canada's regulations for on-campus and off-campus employment.
