International Communities

Just like Canada, York University thrives on its multiculturalism, which is why we strongly encourage students at York to take advantage of the many opportunities to broaden their perspective and enhance their educational experience. We also encourage York students to go on exchanges to one of our partner universities and welcome international students to study at York for a truly Canadian and global experience.
