Everyone's post-secondary journey looks different. Before beginning her bachelor’s in archaeology, Katy started at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, and wasn’t sure about transferring to SFU. 

For many international students at SFU, post-secondary is a path that crosses both borders and cultures. Five years ago, Xuzheng started at Fraser International College which offers direct transfer pathways to SFU.

Before Rory started at SFUthey travelled abroad to Spain and Morocco, where they saw the world and gained valuable cultural experience. Then they took classes at Kwantlen Polytechnic University.

Sometimes one path leads to another. Sterling actually started off at Douglas College in environmental studies before transferring into the Resource and Environmental Management program at SFU.

Evangeline always knew that she liked maps. When she was little, her dream was to be an architect. Evangeline completed her associate’s degree in Geography at Langara College before starting at SFU.

Not everyone arrives at SFU directly from high school. Jonathan started his Geography undergraduate degree with a certificate in Geographic Information Sciences after transferring from Langara College.
