Virtual Orientation and Information Sessions

To help you adjust to your new life as a student at Laval University, the Student Life Office (Bureau de la vie étudiante) invites all new international students to an orientation and information session few days before the beginning of their first semester. During these sessions, which last about an hour, you get essential information about your new university, how it operates, and the various services it provides.
