Global Ambassador Program
About the Global Ambassador Program (GAP)
The Global Ambassador Program (formerly Exchange Student Network) is for international students who are at the University of Toronto (U of T) for a short term, through the CIE international exchange and visiting program. The program connects international exchange and visiting students with a current U of T student volunteer, known as a Global Ambassador. It supports the students through their fast-paced transition to U of T and creates a community of globally-engaged students.
How to join
As an international exchange/ visiting student coming to U of T through a CIE program, you are automatically a member of GAP and will be matched with a Global Ambassador.
An invitation to the GAP program will be sent to you after you are admitted to U of T, around August for Fall/ Winter students and April for Summer students.
The Global Ambassador is a friendly face on campus who can answer day-to-day questions as visiting students navigate the University and the city.
Ambassadors will plan social outings where all visiting students are welcome.
