Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of Lethbridge (uLethbridge). My name is Imarú Baquero, and I am the Manager of International Student Services. It is my pleasure, along with our International Student Advisors, Karis Dykstra and Ravneet Panech to provide support and assistance to international students.
This guide was developed to provide you with information regarding coming to Canada and your application for a Canadian study permit. You will find answers to most of your questions here, so please read this guide thoroughly! If you still have questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help.
The University of Lethbridge has more than 600 international students from over 65 countries. Our full-time enrolment is approximately 8,500 students. The University offers a wide range of recreational, cultural, social, and educational activities in addition to its academic programs.
The main campus of the University of Lethbridge is located in Lethbridge, Alberta, a very friendly and safe town. It is approximately 220 kilometres (about a 2-hour drive) south of Calgary, Alberta, where the Calgary Campus is located.
The International Centre is located at the Main Campus. However, our services are available to all Calgary Campus students. Please reach out to us to seek advice, obtain information on campus activities, and learn about workshops and events organized for you. We send a newsletter called International Mail to provide you with important information, and to keep in touch. We sometimes visit the Calgary Campus, and are excited to meet you next time we are there!
Please let us know if we can assist you before your departure.
