The International Student Support Centre (ISSC) at MRU provides a vibrant space for students from all backgrounds to meet other MRU students as well as students studying on exchange. The ISSC is staffed by students who can provide information, support, and peer-driven programs that connect international and domestic students. The ISSC team plans and creates opportunities for students to participate in fun and engaging social and cultural activities, and provides a space for students to gather to practice language, study, meet new people, and learn from each other.
