Aimee - international student at University in Canada


Aimee Li

From: China
Program: BA Professional Communication

"I must say the campus in Royal Roads University is really different from what I experienced in China. For instance, I used to study or learn knowledge by myself. While, in Canada we always have some groups to work together, and most of us can cooperate well. The teachers and staff at the ISC help me solve the study problems and life problems. In a word, I love studying in Royal Roads University."
