Participants

Congratulations! You have been selected to participate in the Ontario/Jiangsu Student Exchange Program (OJS), a collaborative initiative of universities in two jurisdictions; the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities; and the Jiangsu Provincial Department of Education. The exchange is a personal opportunity for you to pursue your studies at one of the participating universities on Ontario or Jiangsu, and to grow from the experience of living in a foreign culture. It is also an opportunity to enrich the knowledge base and culture of your home and host universities and the people and societies of Ontario and Jiangsu provinces.

The OJS program looks forward to helping you prepare for and fully enjoy your exchange experience. We will do everything we can to ensure that you have the time of your life. We are always there to assist you in any way possible. Please feel free to contact the Program Office or the Academic Directors if you have any questions.

You will be invited to attend Orientation Sessions in the coming months to assist you in adapting to the educational systems and culture of the host province. Where possible we will have OJS alumni at the session to provide advice to the new participants. For Ontario participants this will happen in May at York University. For Jiangsu students the Orientation Session will be organized in June. These sessions are not mandatory but all students are encouraged to attend.
