Today is my first day of school. I could pick my courses and I chose Communication in Place, Professional Presentations, Promotional Communication and Social Media and Introduction to Visual Communication.
I almost didn’t get my first option (strategic PR) but suddenly in two minutes time a spot opened up. Soooo I got all the courses I wanted.
The Canadian school system is better than the Belgian, in my opinion. In Belgium you get a school package. Like a package deal, you have to follow the courses you don’t like too. In Canada you pick your own courses. You get 2 weeks to try them out. If you dislike them, you can change. BUT if classes are full, they are full. You need to be fast.
The cherry on top of the cake is that I probably won’t have any exams!! In Belgium I have exams every January and June. About and around 10 exams in 3 to 4 weeks. Over here I follow 4 courses and I don’t have any exams. I do have to add that I have some sort of midterms …
It just makes my day.
