Global Village Alumni Spotlight!

This week, we caught up with Juan de Dios, a Global Village Victoria graduate (summer 2023) who is now pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration and Sustainability at Royal Roads University!
He loves the beautiful campus's supportive environment and ample opportunities for focused study. 

Royal Roads is known for its project-based learning; Juan's experience reflects that. He collaborates with his team on real-world projects with local businesses, honing his presentation skills!

Juan's Top Tips for Future RRU Students:

- Master Time Management: Weekly deadlines require strong organization, find a balance with your schoolwork. Don't fall behind in your assignments!

- Sharpen Your Academic Writing: Proficiency in APA referencing is key.

- Boost Your English Skills: All crucial is reading, listening, and speaking.

"The transition from GV to university is challenging, but it prepares you for the real world," says Juan. He emphasizes the importance of being ready for education in a new language and acknowledges the valuable preparation he received at GV.

Thanks, Juan! We wish you continued success in your program and a well-deserved summer break!
