"I’m an international student, and my arrival in Canada was a big challenge. Fortunately, I made the right choice by choosing the University of Ottawa. It offers many resources to help us throughout our studies and even after graduation. For example, Career Centre advisors helped me polish my resumé and improve my interview skills. This was very useful because I got internships as a CO-OP student.

I highly recommend the CO-OP program, because it allows us to experience the workplace and form opinions. It is an exceptional opportunity, in the sense it allows us to really assess our choice of program option. We can confirm our career choice during our studies instead of waiting until we graduate to realize that the program we chose is not the right one for us. Also, I would like to acknowledge professors and their commitment to helping students, by guiding us and answering our various questions on graduate studies, on career opportunities, but also on questions like optional courses."
