What Adi had to say about his experience:

Last year, I tooka chance and went to BCIT for my exchange semester. It was one of the best decisions of my life. I still remember flying to Vancouver and being nervous and curious at the same time. But I soon understood that there was no reason to be nervous. I was welcomed by the exchange office staff and we had a weekend trip where we could discover the city and also the BCIT campus. The campus was a very big surprise for me. Everything you need was either at the campus or very close to the campus.

At BCIT, I could experience an alternative style of lecture. I like the lecture and lab system a lot; in my opinion, it is the best way to learn. The instructor at BCIT are professionals on a very high level, every one of them really knew what they were teaching you and they could answer every question you might have. If it was a tough question, they would find the answer with you. That is something that I really appreciate.

I got to know a lot of new people and make new friends. It was surprisingly hard to say good bye to all of them. The people in Vancouver were very friendly and it was easy to make friends.

I recommend that everyone goes to BCIT. You should be open-minded; you are going to have one of the best experiences of your life. You will also need an umbrella :)
