About the city 🌇

Vancouver in Canada can best be described as the globe in a nutshell. How's that? The short answer is that the city simply has everything that a traveling person would like to experience.

Surrounded by coast, sea and the most beautiful mountains, Vancouver is filled with a skyline of glass skyscrapers you usually only see in movies. You would hardly believe it, but in the very same town, you have the opportunity to go to the beach or directly the opposite, namely to ski at some of the city's famous mountains.

Vancouver is not only for those who want a wildly vibrant city life with an amazing skyline, because there is also access to beautiful parks and natural areas where you can enjoy "the scenery" and feel zen with peace of body and mind.

As one of the few North American cities, Vancouver is super bike-friendly with about 1,300 kilometers of bike lanes in the city, which means you can easily get around to various bars, eateries, chinatown and all the incredible places Vancouver has to offer.

Jeg ledte efter et freemover-ophold i udlandet gennem Uniclub, og jeg fik noget af den bedste service, jeg har oplevet. De tog sig af alt det praktiske, og fjernede næsten alt det besvær med arbejde, det kan være at ansøge om et udvekslingsophold.

Jeg skal til Australien i et semester, og før jeg fandt Uniclub, virkede hele ansøgningsprocessen umulig. De her gutter er simpelthen de bedste. De har det rigtige svar på bogstaveligt talt ethvert spørgsmål, du har. De er hjælpsomme, hurtige, med fremragende service

Uniclub og Deni Isic, få min absolut varmeste anbefaling! Jeg havde en drøm om at komme til Japan, der virkede fjern og uhåndterlig, men Deni og resten af Uniclub har hjulpet mig gennem hele processen.

Jeg er lige vendt tilbage fra mit udvekslingsophold i Irland, hvilket ikke ville have været muligt, hvis det ikke var for Uniclub. Hvis du leder efter en udveksling som freemover, så kan jeg ikke anbefale UniClub nok!
