Welcome to our project!


           The Multilingual University Student Experience (MUSE) Project (2021-2024) is a multi-site research study designed to better understand multilingual students’ experience and social adaptation in three Canadian universities: Concordia University (QC), the University of British Columbia (BC), and York University (ON). Particularly, we will examine and compare the approaches of three English for Academic Purposes (EAP) programs to supporting first-year multilingual students. We will also look into how these programs address systemic challenges and the impact of COVID-19 on multilingual students’ academic achievement and journey to graduation. Findings from the study will be used to improve the international student experience at Canadian universities.


We are interested in bringing students’ voices and experiences to the project.
