Student Testimonials
"I currently work in a law firm as practicing junior lawyer.
I graduated from a law school here in the Czech Republic and then went to the University of Cambridge, UK for my masters. Upon return, I started practicing here, and I also write my Ph.D. dissertation on a part time basis. I also teach company law and taxation in a college in Prague.
I have to say that the decision to go to Canada back then totally changed my options in life. Without Powell River there would have been no Cambridge either".
- Tomas Mach, Czech Republic

"I really enjoy studying here because the people are friendly and helpful. The homestays also help us learn English and look after us very carefully."

 "Personally, I really like my homestay family. They make me feel welcome."

 "I had the best time of my life. I didn't want the program to end. Every day was different; it was an incredible experience. Powerboat tubing was fantastic! Horseback rides in the rainforest, mountain trails, beach campfires and roasting marshmallows and hotdogs under a starlit sky were awesome! Sleeping in tents was lots of fun and I really liked swimming in the ocean. I made friends for life and will never forget Powell River. It was the greatest time I ever had!"
- Paula Ortega Vera, Mexico
