Over 7500 international students from 100 countries form part of the diverse student body at Sheridan. In challenging times, the circumstances of international students can rapidly turn precarious influenced as they are by factors beyond their control - from the lack of local familial relationships and a strong support network, to the inability to travel home to their countries of citizenship, the loss of their livelihood, and the immigration regulations that govern their temporary residence in Canada. Hear how Sheridan has demonstrated agility and flexibility in responding to the needs of its International students.
