I broke my leg, and I didn’t know what to do because I didn’t have a Saskatchewan health card. I called the UR International emergency number and they came to my home right away. They helped me to apply for the SK Health Card immediately, and took me to the hospital. Luckily, I was admitted to the emergency room right away and was treated the next day. After the surgery, UR International even arranged an emergency residence room on campus for me to stay, so it would be convenient to go to classes and be close to my friends. The staff at the UR International office were very helpful and efficient.

  14. 14. UR INTERNATIONAL 23 SIYUE PAN AND TINGTING FENG In 2003, I left China to take English as a Second Language at the University of Regina. I was lucky to receive the UR International Team’s help: finding a Canadian homestay, getting English coaching, renewing my study permit and file tax returns. Most importantly, I made friends at the UR International events. Regina is a quiet, friendly city where students can concentrate on their studies. And since this university has many international students, I also learned about many cultures without having to travel. After a year of ESL, I entered the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, and I received my degree in Petroleum Systems Engineering. After six years of living in Regina, I decided to stay, and took a job with the provincial government. I am now an economic/ engineering analyst. To advance my career, I chose the University of Regina again, for my master’s degree in Environmental Systems Engineering. My wife came here from China in 2004. Her plan was to take ESL here, then go to Ontario for her bachelor’s degree. But after graduating from ESL, she decided to stay here for her degree in Business Administration. With guidance from the UR International office, she joined the Co-op Program, got her work permit, and worked in an accounting firm and then with the Ministry of Justice as a revenue clerk. She is now a budget and financial analyst in the Saskatchewan government. Our baby was born this year, and her Chinese middle name means “a bright future.” 22 UR INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS STORIES REAL STORIES ARMAAN SINGH I’m from India. In 2013 I chose the University of Regina because of its undergraduate programs and completed a two-year certificate in Computer Science. UR International helped me adjust to university life in a new country: registering for courses, filing my taxes, applying for an extended work permit. To connect with and help new international students, I got involved with student associations: I served on the Indian Students Association and I was a Certified Junior UR Ambassador, leading campus tours and helping new international students register for classes. I also had a part-time job at the university, which let me work between classes. Thanks to UR International’s support, I completed my studies and landed a great job as an analyst with the Saskatchewan government. GINA SOPARLO I’m from Regina. When I arrived on campus, I realized that the University of Regina was not only close to home, but an extension of it. The staff ensured that I was comfortable and secure in my new surroundings, and with all of my courses. I’ve forged friendships with students from all over the world. This has allowed me to become fluent in French and Spanish and helped me travel abroad during my undergrad years. In 2015, I took a study tour to New York and Washington, DC. Travelling with my international peers, I saw this experience through the eyes of people of different cultural backgrounds. This inspired me to study in Mexico for a year through the UR International Study Abroad Program. Thanks to the U of R, I not only have the campus as my home, but the world as well. IN THEIR OWN WORDS DANIEL SOTO LÓPEZ I’m pursuing my master’s of science degree in Industrial Systems Engineering at the University of Regina. In Mexico, I earned an Undergraduate International Mobility Scholarship, which allowed me to take an internship at a Canadian university. I got a warm welcome from the UR International Team: they helped me find accommodation, get a bus pass and student ID, and apply for my master’s program. I like that the University of Regina is a mid-sized campus, where students have a good chance of being noticed by profs. I appreciate that the campus is so culturally diverse, and I’m proud to be part of the large international community here. Last year, at the end of my internship, I gladly accepted the opportunity to continue my studies here at the graduate level.
  15. 15. 24 UR INTERNATIONAL REAL STORIES KUBLIR JAGLAN I came from India to the University of Regina in 2011, for my bachelor’s degree in Software Systems Engineering. Life-skills advisors at UR International guided me throughout the degree program and helped me with all my needs: immigration advice, academic expectations, work permit/study permit extensions, and more. While studying, I designed and developed a software system for Regina’s public transportation (which won first prize from the Regina Engineering Society). With the help of the UR International and UR Guarantee Advisors, I got a part-time job as a service tech at SaskTel, a leading information and communication technology provider. The job allowed me to work while I studied and gave me valuable experience in my field. I also volunteered on campus and got involved in student associations. Regina offers endless opportunities and career possibilities … which is why I now call it home. JERMAIN MCKENZIE I came to the University of Regina from Jamaica in 2011. It took a while for me to transition to the winters here, but the UR International assistants’ warm smiles speeded my acclimatization. I chose the U of R for its strong Chinese Language Program. Its relationship with several Chinese universities allowed me to travel to China for a summer intensive language program. I’m in my final year of the Mandarin Chinese Degree Program, and I’ve loved every minute. I’ve had great jobs at three provincial government ministries through the university’s Co-op Program. I’ve also worked and volunteered in the university community – I’m proud to say I’m the first international student elected as president of the University of Regina Students’ Union. SUA PARK I’m from South Korea, pursuing my bachelor’s of education degree at the University of Regina. I chose the U of R because it offers well-rounded and comprehensive courses, as well as internships. Though I was anxious about being a new international student here, in no time the friendly, welcoming UR International staff were helping me with everything, from Orientation to English tutoring. Their support helped me boost my GPA, which led me to make the Dean’s Honours List. I also love the residence: the buildings are safe and clean and located close to class. Thanks to living in residence, I’ve made friends from around the globe. I was also thrilled to get a job on campus as a student assistant with UR International. It’s been a rewarding opportunity to help other newcomers adjust to life at the U of R.

English Portuguese Spanish Chinese Russian U of R Home Admission Requirements Academic Program The minimum age to apply to the ESL Program is 16; however, if you are under the age of 16, you may be considered for admission, but require special permission from the ESL Director. We will issue you a Letter of Acceptance once your application has been approved, you have paid the required fees and provided us with a copy of your passport. Please be advised that the age of majority in Saskatchewan is 18, which means if you are under the age of 18 you are still considered a minor. If you apply to the Academic ESL Program and are a minor, you are required to submit additional documents to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). The documents are for the purposes of proving custodianship in Canada for minors who plan to study in Canada without a parent or legal guardian. Neither the ESL Program nor any of our staff or faculty members will assume custodianship over you. For more information about the documents CIC requires, please refer to the CIC website: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/study/study-minors.asp.
