Learning Abroad gives you the chance to see the world and live life to the fullest, while also becoming more independent and improving your professional skills.
Summer Research Program at Lund University,
I was able to carry out my own thesis project right after first year through this opportunity, and presented at the Eastern European Visegrad Conference.
Science Abroad Program at University of Miskolc,
I volunteered off-campus at a non-profit where I met and became friends with various individuals from the community and different schools (a few were fellow Canadians doing their Masters or on exchange as well!).
UTSC Fall Semester at Queen Mary University,
As much as the experience was technically an academic one, I think the learning you do outside of the classroom is so much more valuable, and is something you can’t always get with that extra bit of safety net.
Winter Semester at National University of Singapore,
My brief but valuable work experience in London has given me professional work experience and the skills needed to adapt in a new environment.
Full Year Program at University of Strathclyde,
It was a unique and uplifting experience to see how the effects of my work conducted in the office could one day come true within Sukhna. Here, for the first time outside of my native country, I saw how my own work could impact a small global change.
Queen Elizabeth Scholarship in West Bengal,
I learned to be more open to criticism, not to misplace my confidence, and always take the meticulous, mundane steps to be adequately prepared.
