Welcome and services

About our services and staff

The mandate of the Bureau des étudiants internationaux (BEI) is to help foreign students integrate into the Université de Montréal and Québec society. Its services are useful during the students' initial arrival, and also throughout their stay at the University. The BEI is the only place on campus where the staff's attention is exclusively focused on the needs and requests of foreign students.

The Bureau des étudiants internationaux is also mandated to manage the files of foreign students in accordance with the regulations of Québec’s Ministry of Education. It is thus required to keep copies of students' residency permits and visas, plus proof of valid health insurance. An incomplete file at the Bureau des étudiants internationaux means that a student ID card will not be issued or validated. Moreover, at the end of the first month of the term, the Bureau du registraire will cancel the registration of any student with an incomplete file at BEI.
