International Student Support

Supporter System for International Students

The Supporter System

The system was designed for peer student supporters to give newly arrived international students peer- to-peer extracurricular assistance. This assistance contributes to improve the residential /college life of international students, and it is implemented within a designated period of time under the guidance of an academic advisor and administrative staff in charge.

International students who meet the necessary requirements can also become supporters of other international students. Ask the administrative office of your school for further information.
