Welcoming International Students and Fellows
Studying at INRS during the COVID-19 pandemic
The pandemic situation is expected to have a more moderate effect on the 2021-2022 academic year. INRS is making every effort to ensure your time at INRS meets your expectations.
Health measures permitting, most instructional activities will be in-person and students will need to be available to get to their campus.
In-person mentoring will be preferred depending on health measures, but all staff will remain available via email or video conference. In addition, INRS assigns a mentor to each new person enrolled in a regular program.
Things to do on arrival
Contact the student records contact person. Make sure you provide all required documents (CAQ, study permit, etc.)
It is important to register as soon as possible. Registration is done through the IDÉ academic portal.
For international students not covered by the RAMQ, registration also activates your membership in the group health and hospitalization insurance plan. Students who are covered by the RAMQ must send a copy of their card to the Registrar’s Office.
A few weeks before the start of the term, you will be put in touch with a fellow student who knows INRS well: this person will be your mentor! You will meet this person at the beginning of the term. Mentors are matched a few times during the two months prior to the start of the term. Students arriving from abroad must have their study permit approved prior to the match. Learn more about the Student Mentoring Program.
In the fall, all new INRS registrants are invited to a welcome day. The invitation is sent by email. This welcome day is important to start your academic career at INRS.
