Advice for International Students

Peng Tang, International student at the Automotive Business School of Canada, Georgian College

Peng Tang is an international student from China who has just completed his first-year study and is about to engage in his first co-op work term. This is the speech he delivered during Georgian Week at the college (full text attached).

“We are not only students here, we are also residents. Campus life is just a part of social life. When we graduate from college, we meanwhile graduate from Canada as well.”

Dmitry Vinnik, Russia, University Transfer student (bioinformatics)

“At Langara I’ve always felt like my education is on par with students at larger universities – in fact, I think that the skills and transferable knowledge I’ve received here are broader and more applicable than what I might get at university. This is because at Langara I’ve benefited from small classes and a personal approach from my instructors. They know my name, engage me in amazing research projects, and have helped me make decisions about my future career path.”

“Langara has a very warm and welcoming atmosphere that has made my experience as a student a remarkable one. The professors are very encouraging and they are always ready to help students with their work. The Langara staff makes every student feel important, as they are always ready to listen and provide assistance to our problems, guide us properly, and provide us with opportunities for self-development.”
