Montreal University, HEC Montreal & Polytechnique

This week I’ve been promoting Sweden’s universities and especially Umeå University, to future Canadian’s exchange students. This was a great time to speak about Umeå, the university, the life in Sweden, Sweden, the people there etc…. It was a real pleasure to speak and remember about all that. And surprisingly, the question people asked the most was : How cold is it there ? Can you survive ? […] And I tell you, this last week, with the wind, it was feeling colder in Montreal than it could have been in Umeå last year.
