Office of International Initiatives

Welcome to the Office of International Initiatives (OII). Our mission is to develop and administer programs suited to the learning needs of international students. The OII recognizes that universal understanding and respect can be realized through internationalization in a positive learning environment.

Two programs, the Master of Education (International Student Program) (MEd ISP) and the Master Preparation Certificate in Education (MPCE) are supported through the OII.  Recognized and respected as one of the premier international programs at Brock University, all candidates in the MEd ISP program over the past several years have successfully completed their studies. A number of graduates have been admitted to doctoral studies in North American universities.

For further information concerning recruitment and programs, or to propose a possible collaboration with the Office of International Initiatives, please contact us.
