"I chose CUD because I always wanted to study in Canada, and the university offers a transfer option. I was in contact with a transfer specialist at every point — from applying to universities to actually deciding which university to join. I took the advice of my specialist and picked the University of Brock. I was directly transferred to my second year, and my priority was to get all my credits transferred. It was easy since CUD has a partnership with the University of Brock.”
