An International Co-op Student’s Perspective on Studying and Working in Whistler, Canada
Studying at Tamwood in Whistler was a life-changing experience for me because I could connect with people from countries I never thought I would know.
Whistler Resort was the perfect place for me to take the Essentials in Hospitality, Service and Tourism Co-op Diploma because Whistler is one of the most popular tourism destination in British Columbia, there are many renown hotels ready to hire you for your Co-Op practice and its beautiful landscapes proves that the sustainable tourism is a must in this city.
At first, one the biggest challenges I faced was being away from home, I was feeling home sick but I could learn how to cope with it by living the Whistler lifestyle. There were always weekly events and Tamwood has its own daily group activities such as cross country skiing, hiking, museums visits and excursions.
After finishing my studies at Tamwood, I felt so in love with the hospitality industry that I decided to continue with my studies at a higher level, and Tamwood was there to prepare me for my IELTS exam and offered me some unique career pathways at different universities.
All I can say is thank you Tamwood for supporting my dreams and being there when I needed you.
