Welcome to NSCAD University!

The new school semester is almost here and we are looking forward to meeting all new NSCAD students in person!

We wanted to give you the heads up about Fall 2016 Orientation at NSCAD because it is jam-packed with things to do and you should participate as much as you can!

In partnership with Edunova and our partner Universities we are offering an Airport Welcome Service for new international students arriving in Halifax between August 26 and September 1, 2016.To find out more about what services will be available and where to find your welcome desk visit Edunova - http://studynovascotia.ca/welcome/
