Completing your post-secondary is hard enough when you’re still in the country you call home. Doing it while abroad can come with an entirely different set of mental hurdles for students to clear. Fortunately, groups like the Wellness Education Centre at Ontario’s Western University exist.
A recent article describes the organization as a support group dedicated to helping international students. They help newcomers prepare for the academic system of their new country and deal with issues like culture shock.
Everyone needs a way to voice their frustrations and the Wellness Education Centre serves as an ideal platform for international students. They remind students that they’re not the only ones facing these issues and there are always ways to cope.
