The Lakehead Potential: Celebrating Student Success Stories


Studying abroad, be it doing a diploma abroad or a full-blown master's course leading to research, all hinges on one important factor: the feeling. How welcome you feel at your college and how invigorating your academic journey is. Do your lecturers show a genuine interest in your scholastic pursuits? Does the university have the facilities for you to explore and experiment with your ideas? These are some of the questions that we often come across and have answers for.

Lakehead University, one of Canada's globally top-ranking universities, is one such place that nurtures the spirit of the students. From business administration and engineering to law and the humanities, the university offers students an education that goes beyond the books. Education that nurtures the mind and invigorates the spirit.

Here we have compiled a few snippets of student experiences at Lakehead University to shed light on how studying in Canada is much more than pursuing an international degree.
