Why did you choose uOttawa?
“I chose uOttawa for the French opportunities on and off campus. I was attracted to the French program’s courses and small class sizes, uOttawa’s bilingual campus, and the city’s bilingual culture and proximity to Quebec, a francophone province where I could immerse myself in the language.“ ― Valérie Binder
