Request for feedback on international graduate student issues

Dear Graduate Students,

It has recently come to our attention that better resources are needed for international graduate students at SFU. The Graduate Student Society at SFU is currently compiling a document containing information that will help international students to overcome unique issues that they face. However, we need some feedback from you in terms of the specific issues that we should be addressing in such a document. Some suggestions so far have been poor access to external funding and confusion about the BC healthcare system.

If you have any suggestions about what information should be put in this document,  or would like to discuss issues that you have experienced as an international student, please contact us at the address below. Feedback on this matter is greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
Carroll Boydell

GSS Secretary
