German students love to travel and they love to study abroad! Canada is a popular destination because of its bilingualism, its impressive landscapes and unspoilt nature, and its open-minded people – just to name a few reasons.

Students feel that it's easy to connect with Canadian culture, in spite of some obvious cultural differences. Canadian schools, just like those in Germany, have established a reputation for their high quality. Numerous academic exchange programs between the two countries exist.

Germans studying in Canada reflect their own culture while studying in an international setting; they learn about other nationalities in this multicultural country.

We interviewed German students currently living and studying in Canada. They have exciting stories to tell!

Check back regularly as we will periodically add portraits.
