Featured Experiences

I never really understood how much an exchange trip could change my perspective on myself and the world around me until I studied at Tsinghua University.
The study abroad program broadened my academic, social, and cultural perspectives, enhancing my values and intercultural understanding through comparison and contrast.
One thing I would advise anyone who wants to apply for an international co-op abroad is to just do it! Even when it sounds big and scary I have to tell you that the scariest thing is not to do it. Trust me, you’ll come back so much richer from the amazing experiences you’ll get.
Studying abroad for a semester at the University of Glasgow has been one of the best decisions I have made for my personal growth and development. It was not an easy process, but it has been rewarding in so many ways, and I am excited to return to SFU feeling inspired and with a fresh perspective.
Studying abroad was a truly indescribable, fulfilling experience where I have gained knowledge, created memories, and gone through experiences I will remember and cherish for years. I've learned more about the world and about myself.
My study abroad journey in Sweden was not only insightful and life-changing, but truly amazing. Making the most of the opportunity, I travelled across Europe by train, immersing myself in 15 distinct countries, savoring diverse foods, connecting with people, embracing various cultures, and appreciating unique lifestyles.
