One of the most exciting parts about coming to the Queen’s School of Business is the opportunity they provide you to go on exchange. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity and the learning, both school and personal, is truly priceless.
I have been spending the last few weeks trying to get everything in order for my own exchange. I will be off to Toulouse, France in January and as the date approaches I remember the work I still have to get done for it.
I will be leaving Canada on December 30th and spending New Years in Paris! Then I am off to Toulouse to study. I chose France because, living in Canada, I thought learning some French would be beneficial. Admittedly, all I know in French currently is ‘Hello’, ‘I am hungry’ and some fashionable, catchy french movie lines…..
Things to still do before departing include getting a French Visa, and finding my accommodation in France.
I will hopefully be taking you all along with me on my adventure through videos of my journey. Exchange is a great opportunity offered in this program and what better way to see what it is like then through video.
Is there something you are wondering about Queen’s, the business program, or life? I know the University application deadline is coming as my own little brother is scrambling to figure out what he wants to do. Feel free to ask us questions in the comments and we will answer them all for you.
