My name is Danielle Gadsby. I am currently taking 3rd and 4th year classes at Lapland University of Applied Sciences. I hope to graduate next fall after I complete my Thesis next summer. I am a Canadian citizen who came to Rovaniemi, Finland in September of 2016 to complete my Bachelor’s Degree in Tourism.
Why Finland? I did some research on Universities that excel in Tourism Education. There was a great choice in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada but I wanted an adventure. I stumbled upon some courses in Finland that were taught in English. Further into my research I found out that Finland is globally recognized for having the highest education standards and learning techniques for their students. I took the chance, and got an invitation to participate in the Entrance Exam process with Lapland University of Applied Sciences. I succeeded in that and have now enjoyed my education experiences in Finland.
