The Fleming Advantage for International Students
We're here for you.
We understand that an education abroad can be both enriching and daunting, so we dedicate ourselves to making your experience in and out of the classroom a success. We will connect with you regularly and often to give you the support you need and help you adjust well academically, culturally and socially. We'll help you get involved, meet other students and make the most out of your stay.
