International Bridging Program
Please accept our invitation to participate in the King’s International Students’ Bridging Program. This program, which takes place from August 30th, 2017 to September 3rd, 2017 provides an opportunity for new international students to become comfortable with King’s, Western and London prior to the excitement and hectic pace of the Orientation Program for all new students.
The program is a combination of academic orientation, practical workshops and lots of fun!
The ACADEMIC focus is very strong with a session on Academic Success with the Associate Academic Dean, a Writing Workshop, a Math Exercise (for those students interested in programs which require math), a Library Orientation, and an academic counselling appointment (if needed) to finalize any details of course registration.
The PRACTICAL sessions include: setting up bank accounts, an opportunity to purchase books and supplies, organizing health insurance, getting your student ID card, exploring the King’s and Western campus, becoming familiar with London and sessions on student services, culture and financial issues.
The FUN includes: campfire, shopping trip, tour of Western, games, a Dinner Banquet, and an excursion to Niagara Falls

The cost is $535.00 for students, which includes all sessions, activities, food and residence accommodation (if required).
