University of British Columbia
My exchange to the University of British Columbia was a very enjoyable and fruitful experience.
I took courses in a variety of fields, including finance, mathematics, statistics and programming. I found the teaching style there to be very different from that in Hong Kong; it is more interactive and involves more group work and case study analysis. The university offers a wide range of societies that organise many activities to provide students the opportunity to mix with local and international students.
The travel opportunities in and around Vancouver were a bonus to university life. The scenery of the Whistler ski resort is out of this world!
