“Studying at the University of Victoria was the most amazing experience. The teachers are so kind, polite and helpful to all the students. Classes are interesting, fun, enriching and knowledgeable at the same time. UVic has all the facilities to practice speaking, reading and writing. Besides that, activities like games, coffee socials, events, tours, and so on, make learning a lot easier and faster.

One thing I especially enjoyed in my program: international exchange. I have never met so many interesting people in one place. It’s a great opportunity to learn about other countries and cultures: not only about Canada, but Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Saudi Arabia. This is unbelievable!”
