Fall Orientation 2024: September 2 & 3, 2024

Orientation is the doorway into your Ambrose experience. Come learn all you need to be a student at Ambrose, meet your professors and classmates, and enter into the community. This will be an informative, engaging, and interactive one day event where you can begin to imagine all that is possible during your time at Ambrose.


International Orientation: September 2, 2024

We recognize that the transition to Canada can be challenging, so orientation is here to help you start your Ambrose journey well. Orientation is mandatory for all international students.  

See the schedule below for International Student Orientation on September 2. Your orientation also includes your degree orientation on September 3 (either seminary or undergrad - their schedules are also on this page).

Residence does not open until September 1. Please plan your travel and accommodation needs accordingly. It's important to plan your flights only after you have paid your Ambrose deposit.  Once that happens let your enrolment advisor know.
