Fall 2014 - Exchange

Hong Kong – Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK)

I did my exchange in Hong Kong in Fall 2014. For me, the reason I chose Hong Kong is that working in Hong Kong is so very attractive to me. I want to experience what it is like working and living in that part of the world, to prepare myself for future possibility of moving there.

I did exchange and research internship at EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) in Switzerland from February to August 2017. It was my first time in Europe and it was so different from anywhere else I have been. It took me a while to get things I needed before school because of my poor French but everything worked out :)

Jahanzeb Meghani

Exchange

Heriot-Watt University (Exchange) Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom

Fall 2015 – Mathematics Honours – Actuarial Science/Finance Option (3B)

I did my 3A semester abroad in Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. Initially, I was quite hesitant of leaving my friends and family and travelling on my own in a stranger country. The idea of living out of a suitcase was very unsettling. Now, ever since I came back I could only think of how fulfilling those four months have been.
