What Students Have to Say
I found that the support for international students at the University of Guelph was unlike any other school I applied to. The Office of Intercultural Affairs made the admissions process smooth and enjoyable for me and my family.
I knew I wanted a program that combined my passion for business as well as international development, and specifically international agriculture. The Food and Agriculture Business (FAB) program at the University of Guelph seemed like the perfect fit for these two interests.
I chose my program because I wanted to influence policy and trade in the food and agricultural sector on my island [The Bahamas].
