University of Toronto
My exchange to the University of Toronto (U of T) was a truly memorable experience. U of T puts the onus on students to learn independently through discussion and creativity, so instead of ‘lecturing’, the professors guide students to discuss different topics and invite them to present their ideas. Moreover, everyone I met at U of T was really kind and helpful, which made me feel at home.
I enjoyed exploring Toronto and other cities in Canada. Toronto is a vibrant city that abounds with artistic atmosphere. In addition to myriad museums and galleries, the annual arts festival sees thousands of visitors swarm to exhibitions all around the city. A highlight for me was my visit to Yellowknife in northern Canada, where I witnessed the spectacular aurora borealis ‘dancing’ in the sky.
