What people say:
Laureate Student 2020
"Laureate was the best school that I have attended with wonderful teachers, principal, and staff. I made a lot of good memories from the school’s excursions and events."
Online Summer Course
“This was a short eventful month that I had with you and it was nice to have you as my math teacher. I think that this class made me more prepared for the upcoming school and I hope that I would see more teachers like you in my school. I tried my best in this course and with your support, I was able to show my best.”
Student Testimonials from Summer 2019 Hong Kong
"This summer I enrolled in a course at Laureate College. Half of the course was held online in Canada, while the other half was held in person in Hong Kong. The course I took was international business. It was ironic that I was taking international business, internationally. I believe this experience allowed the course to take a better direction as we were not trapped in Canada’s own bubble. We could see first hand what it was like for countries to do business with each other. It was especially good because it was in Hong Kong, one of the world’s largest business hubs. This course was a good learning experience."
“I believe that this course was very fun. I was taught the material that I would have learnt in normal day school. The integration of in school and online was also a very good system. The best part of the school was being able to come to Hong Kong. In Hong Kong, not only was I able to adventure and explore a nice city, I had the opportunity to learn about many topics related to international business. I think that the school should continue these programs and promote in our school even further. It will give many students the opportunity to travel and earn a school credit at the same time. Overall this was a very fun course and I would highly recommend this to all other students.”
