Coming to a new country to study should be an exciting adventure, not a baffling ordeal. With Succeeding as an International Student in the United States and Canada in hand, your international students will have the information they need to succeed—in and out of the classroom.
Designed to help international students navigate the myriad issues they will encounter—from picking a program to landing a campus job— Succeeding as an International Student in the United States and Canada includes practical suggestions for learning English, participating in class, and meeting with instructors. It also explains the rules of academic honesty as they are understood in U.S. and Canadian universities.
Succeeding as an International Student also includes lots of practical information for off-campus living: a comprehensive glossary that addresses academic terms and other phrases, a clothing size chart that matches American and Canadian sizes to their equivalents in other countries, and even a chapter on the academic calendar and holidays in the U.S. and Canada.
Don’t pass up the opportunity to help your international students transition with ease. Succeeding as an International Student in the United States and Canada is a small investment to ensure that your international students have the tools they need to succeed.
