University of Notre Dame - London Global Gateway Centre

The London Regional Institute, aimed at new professionals in the field of university counseling, provided a day of concentrated networking, educational sessions, and conversations specific to international students studying in the US and Canada. Through in-depth and focused conversations and presentations, participants gained a greater understanding of the educational process, admission requirements, fees and scholarships, and the challenges and opportunities students face when applying to a university in North America. Representatives from secondary schools, including heads of school, counselors, and teachers were in attendance.
