Kristen testimonial

Kristen Eastman - BSc (HONS) Pharmaceutical Science with Drug Development

I had never thought to travel for school and I’ve always been a major homebody. But when a rep came to Fanshawe to share information about the study abroad program at IT Sligo, I couldn’t believe how excited it made me.
Andrew - testimonial 2017

Andrew Sanzsole – BEng (Hons) Electronic Systems Engineering, formerly Conestoga College

“One of my classmates from college in Canada came here last year and highly recommended it. I decided during my trip here in March that I wanted to be back in September. When I arrived here  the international society made it really easy for me to fit in. I've met all my friends from the society and we hang out almost everyday and go on almost all the trips organized by the society.  Life here is very similar to Canada, although getting used to the cars coming in the opposite direction took a bit to get used to. I enjoy winter here much more than Canada because there is no snow here!
