International and Newcomer Student Orientation
Congratulations! Your first semester at NAIT will begin soon and you must have many questions about your time at NAIT. On August 29th, 2017, we will be hosting the International and Newcomer Orientation where you will get to know about the services at NAIT, get a campus tour, make friends and ask any other questions regarding your time in Canada or at NAIT. Please see the full schedule of the program in the table below.
In addition to our orientation program, we are also offering the following services to welcome you to Edmonton:
- Airport Welcome Booth – volunteers will greet you upon your arrival at the Edmonton International Airport and provide you with some immediate need-to-know information.
- SkyShuttle transportation service from the Edmonton International Airport to various drop-off locations in Edmonton. Please note that the cost of this service is free of charge for newly admitted NAIT international students only. (If you have accompanying members travelling with you and would like to use the same service, they will have to pay for the service at regular fare.)
The International Centre wishes you success in your new academic year.
