Deciding on the best place to study can be daunting. What is the faculty like? The campus culture? What professional opportunities are there after graduation? What is there to do in the city during your time off?
All these are important factors to take into consideration before applying to a school.
Read on to find out why Vancouver might be a great place to consider to make the most of both your education and personal life.
A safe place to live and grow
As per the New York Times, Vancouver “is Manhattan with mountains. It’s a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France, and the Pacific Northwest. It’s the cool American sibling.”
Vancouver is a truly international city and is constantly being voted into the Top Cities to live in. A low crime rate, temperate climate, affordable public transport and lots of free activities are just a few of the perks of living in the city.
Vancouver has also been called “Canada’s answer to LA” and “Hollywood North”, and many major studios use Vancouver as their preferred location for their productions. There are also many gaming and technology companies based in or around Vancouver, which makes it a great place for students interested in an audio career in this field. Last but not least, Vancouver has the lowest unemployment rate in the whole country. Can’t top that!
A great place to enjoy your time off
There are not many places on Earth where you can ski, surf, hike, experience exquisite international food at fair prices, shop, and end the day with a concert. Vancouver is one of those places.
From cycling around in Stanley Park or kayaking in Deep Cove to a visit to artsy Granville Island or visiting the Richmond Night Market, you will never be bored during your time off. Vancouver also has a huge amount of live music venues, one of the oldest being the Commodore Ballroom, which hosted the likes of Sammy Davis Jr.Tina Turner, and Lady Gaga.
