Western International has announced the launch of a new website for International Visiting Research Only (VRO) Students. VRO students are students who wish to conduct research (only) on campus under the supervision of a host faculty member for the purpose of the student’s independent research project or for a collaborative research project.
All documents that are issued to a VRO student to support their visa application must first be reviewed and confirmed by Western International to ensure that they are in compliance with immigration regulations/policy. It is recommended that VRO students and their host supervisors at Western University start this process at least 2-3 months prior to the anticipated start date of the research term.
If you are interested in hosting an international VRO student, please visit the website below for further information and the steps to take, as well as templates and resources. Prospective VRO students may also be directed to this site for clarification.
