First thing I would say, the facilities, the big library that we have, the labs and the firsthand knowledge that we get from the professors. They’re doing the research themselves here.

Coming here I was really surprised at how open to people, people are to me and I was really happy to see that.

I love Canada.  You’re not feeling like you’re away from home because you see many people from different countries living together here.

I do feel like it’s a lot safer here. It’s safe. You feel that people trust each other and it feels good.

Saswat Mohalik, India:

Canadian universities do offer a very good quality of education and at affordable tuition fees. So that’s really great.

Lui Xia Lee, Malaysia:

The US and the UK don’t really provide as many scholarships as Canada.  How much it costs to live here and stuff like that, that definitely affected why I chose to study in Canada.

Saswat Mohalik, India:

Everyone, they are so welcoming. They have been so helpful.  Even if you make mistakes they forgive you and give you a chance, an opportunity to grow.  That’s the best part for me, making mistakes and still growing.
