Pre-Arrival Orientation for International Students
As part of this course, international students are invited to complete a Pre-Arrival Orientation before starting their career programs. The purpose of this Pre-arrival Orientation is to give international students an opportunity to learn about Cultural Diversity in preparation for their intercultural learning experience at Red River College. This is a 3-hour course that includes video segments, a Reflection Worksheet and a Personal Action Plan.
Through these videos, international students may become more aware of the cultural diversity around them and how their own unique cultural background shapes how they see and experience the world.
