My arrival at Tamwood College in Vancouver: When you decide to leave your country to spend a year abroad, a lot of feelings, doubts and questions come to your mind: “Is this the right decision?” - “What if I do something wrong?” - “Will I be okay?” Honestly, I shouldn’t have worried this much!

My experience at Tamwood as student was unforgettable. More than a college, Tamwood is a family and the staff is very approachable and kind.
