It's a small campus but still loads of things to do. Very similar in teaching method to Australia. Diverse student body and Canadians are very open and welcoming.

Go. It will be one of the most memorable times of your university studies. You will meet great people, make loads of friends and never want to leave!! And the snow and winter time in Canada is an experience you don't want to miss (coming from someone who hates the cold!).

Academic system I wished to know before cause it was different from my home university, so I had to learn a new system of learning, teaching and study.

First if you are studying abroad learn a little bit of their academic systems so you are prepared to know what you have to done and it is easier to addapt.

University of Ottawa Overall Review

University of Ottawa
4.0/5
Overall
The University of Ottawa is a very good school. We have one of the best business school in the country and it's very diverse. There's about 42,000 students from all over the world (local and international students). The school offers a career center that helps you find a job, write your resume, cover letters, etc. There is also a lot of club from different faculty you can join. There's a lot of activities throughout the school year such as the Panda Game (american football). The workload in most Canadian schools are quite heavy. A full course load at my University is 5 classes (15 credits) or 4 classes (12 credits). You can have midterms, final exams, assignments, papers, case studies in your classes. We have good prof and also bad ones, you just need to look them up on rate my professor to see the reviews.

University of Ottawa is a cozy place. It is perfect to get started. Besides, if you come from Europe, as I do, it becomes your new home very quickly, due to the "disconnection" you feel from your home country. Be aware that Canada is 6 hours away from Europe: you will be living another life.

The university offers a number of trips and activities for a good price. The whale-wachting in Quebec is a worthwhile trip!

Ottawa is pretty central, so you can travel to Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City and New York easily. If you want to rent a car, get a international driver's licence in your home country (this helps). If you are under 19, don't go to Ottawa, because 19 is the legal drinking age and they are pretty strict on this.
