Universidade de São Paulo: Intensive English Summer Program
“Many people dream of studying in a foreign country in order to become fluent in another language. What few people know is that this experience abroad goes far beyond the language learning; it transforms your world view. I used to be one of those people, so my experience in Canada, at Concordia University of Edmonton, exceeded my expectations. The program offered is well structured, with several extracurricular activities, creating a dynamic way of learning English which also allows you tobetter understand the history, culture and people of Canada and the incredible city of Edmonton. The city can offer several kinds of entertainment, in addition to being safe, green and well planned. Furthermore, you will find a place with kind and willing to help you people, you will feel good and have time to focus on your personal goals. I spent forty days in Edmonton and did not meet a single person who didn’t want to stay there for a little longer. I appreciate the opportunity and wouldn’t think twice about recommending this program. I hope you have summers as good as I had.”
UNIVATES: Exchange Program
“I am having a great experience in Concordia University, and I am happy to realize that I am improving my English Speaking and Writing quite well. I also made many friends between my classmates. People here are very friendly; also my Canadians classmates are inviting me to participate in events and programs with them. In Edmonton’s streets it’s easy to find people to help if you need some information on places, etc.
Why I chose to come here? First, I intend to improve my English speaking and writing. Second, Concordia is a receptive and welcoming university, and I feel as everybody here is very close and always willing to help, so I did not find problems to get in touch with the campus life. Concordia also have programs for international students to get involved with the campus life, which helps a lot. For students who intend to study in Concordia I recommend to stay firmly in this purpose and go ahead, also study English before, and don’t get worried about the cold, because people here are prepared for it, so you won’t pass cold.”
Science Without Borders Program
“This exchange program has been an awesome experience for me. Edmonton is a lovely city with lots of things to do. Canadians are teaching me an impressive number of lessons. I appreciate the fact that you can wear whatever you want without being judged by other people or the fact that people respect the variety of cultures inside this society
or even in simple demonstrations of patriotism, such as a little Canadian flag in every little detail in the city. I am trying to enjoy everything that Canada has to offer for me. For sure, this is a unique opportunity, mainly in my academic and professional life. I took advantage of a great working experience in Project Management, this placement was a way to build business connections. Canada definitely has a friendly labor environment. I also finished an English course which was an important step of preparation before my academic studies at the university. Now that I have already completed a semester here, I only have positive points to look at. Every day is a new experience for me. Undoubtedly, I would recommend this experience of an exchange program to anyone seeking for academic and personal growth.”
“I came here to pursue a Master’s degree in Information Security Assurance and couldn’t imagine myself settling down in a new city so quickly. All the faculty, staff and fellow international students helped me to grow in confidence and stature. The level of education I am receiving is very satisfactory and will help me to mould myself into a responsible and strong professional. Most importantly, I got the opportunity to interact with people from different backgrounds and countries which really broadened my vision and how I look at life. I made life-long friendships and will take back amazing memories of this fantastic place.”

They are always ready to solve students problem. GSA association is awesome. They provide all information related to our courses, school and Edmonton. I think which is vital for new students. In Overall, I really appreciates.”
