Supporting international PhD students

Reuble Mathew, a Dal PhD student in the Department of Physics and Atmospheric Science, is one of many international students in this country who straddle two worlds. Originally from the province of Kerala in India, he has been studying in Canada for more than 10 years.

Mr. Mathew first came to Canada to do bachelor’s and master’s degrees in engineering physics at Queen’s University in Ontario. He later came east to Halifax to complete his doctorate.

His experience here, he says, has been wonderful. Find out why.
