Life studying abroad
Jessica is studying BA (Hons) History here at Chichester.
She is spending part of her studies at one of our exchange partners, Thompson Rivers University, Canada
Settling in to TRU was so easy.
The staff and volunteers made it a great experience and put on lots of different activities in order to settle you in and get you meeting other new students. They had bbqs, a scavenger hunt, movie nights and other optional activities.
There are certain things that are very different, such as accents of course and the focus of sport is more on baseball and ice hockey than football!
It's very easy to get around, and everyone is super nice and helpful. I've only been here for a month and I can honestly say coming to study at TRU for a year one of the best decisions i have ever made.
The group photo with mountains in the back was on our way back from a weekend trip to Whistler that we organised ourselves. It's in Pemberton, and is called Lake Joffre. Everyone in that photo and the with the TRU balloons are exchange students that i have met.
If you would like to find out more about our exchange opportunities, please speak to your tutor or email firstname.lastname@example.org
