Personal recommendation
It's a very high quality university and if you want and show some effort you can learn a lot. If you expect your exchange-term to be a "party-term" this is definitely the wrong university.

Final comments
For me it was the ultimative highlight of my student career. The university is exactly that type of university I always dreamed to study on. In addition, London(ON) is the perfect place to start travelling. Amazing Cities like New York, Chicago, Toronto and Montreal are within reach!

Personal comments
The "Case-method" really forces you to speak and contribute to the classes. That makes it easy to feel quite comfortable in the English language after a short period of time. Though, if any problems might occur, everyone was extremly helpful!
