More than 60 countries are represented in the student body. International students are found throughout the University community, in the English as a Second Language (ESL) program and at both the undergraduate and graduate level. International and ESL students contribute to the diversity of our community, helping enrich every student's education. 

The Intercultural Programs (ICP) team serves the international student population by providing them with an introduction and orientation to the TWU community, and by offering ongoing support as they transition to life and school in Canada. ICP is also a bridge between North American and International students; heightening campus awareness of cultural diversity by advocating for equity where differences and tensions may arise. ICP organizes cultural activities and strives to offer welcoming personal connections for international and poly-cultural students.
