“My experience was like a dream. I met awesome people from all around the world and I learned a lot about others cultures. I improved my English in class, but also in all the activities. We ALWAYS had something planned…the Cultural Assistants were always enthusiastic and ready to do the activities with us. The classes are really interactive and the teachers are kind and ready to help us to improve our English as much as possible. Living on the UVic campus is safe and the nature is everywhere. Finally, I really liked to live in residence; you can meet a lot of new friends!”

What's it like living in Victoria?

Victoria, Victoria, Victoria... It’s sooooo beautiful in Victoria! I come from Canada, but I’ve never seen such beautiful scenery! British Colombia is one of the most beautiful places that I’ve been. During my stay, I went to Tofino and Vancouver… it was amazing! In downtown Victoria, there are many restaurants, bars, ice cream bars... I was always there!

Best advice for new students

If you are afraid to do this experience, you have no reason to hesitate that is going to be one of the best experiences of your life! “Buy the ticket, take the ride”! For me, it was the BEST summer of my life!
