CultureWorks instructors and staff are a diverse, committed and exceptionally caring group of professionals. Much like our students, we come from many different backgrounds and are inspired by a wide range of interests. But what we can all agree on is our passion for helping students from around the world develop the advanced ESL skills they need to attend university here in Canada.
This week on the CultureWorks Hotspot, our London Campus Associate Registrar, Hunter Doubt talks about what he enjoys most: politics, golf, and helping students plan out their trip to our CultureWorks program on the Western, Kings, and Brescia University campuses in London, Ontario.
- In your Associate Registrar role – what is the best part of the job?
The best part of being Associate Registrar is having the first opportunity to interact with potential students. Registrars have the great fortune of speaking with students during their initial application to CultureWorks. Answering their questions and getting the chance to tell them they’ve been accepted to one of our partner universities is the best part of my day!
- How many different countries do we have students applying to our program from?
We have students from all over the world applying to CultureWorks. The three countries that currently make up the majority of the applications to CultureWorks London are: China, Libya, and Saudi Arabia. That being said, we have students who apply to our ESL program from Egypt, Colombia, Japan, Vietnam, and many other countries all across the world.
- What advice do you have for students applying to study English in Canada with CW? Is there anything particular about the process they should know?
Many students want to know exactly how long they will have to study at CultureWorks before they complete the program. While students do get the option on their application to choose how long they believe they will need, it is actually the test students take on their first day of CultureWorks that determines what level of ESL they will start in – and how long the program will take.
- When you’re not helping students settle into the ESL program for Western University, Brescia University College, and King’s University College, what are you doing? Do you have any hobbies and why do you like doing them?
When I am not working as an Associate Registrar at Culture Works, you will most likely find me out on the golf course! I have been an avid golfer from the time I was six years old. I also love to travel and play the piano whenever I get the chance.
- If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, who would you choose and why?
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would have to be the current President of the United States, Barack Obama. As a political-nerd, I love everything related to politics! Barack Obama seems like a great individual who would have some really interesting stories to share.
- What is your favorite aspect of Canadian culture and why?
My favorite aspect of Canadian culture is our people. Having traveled to many different countries in my lifetime, I have found that Canadians are very well respected around the world. Indeed, we’re a people known for our kind ways and our willingness to accept any individual no matter their religion, race, or sexuality!
Thanks, Hunter for the caring and passionate work you do at Culture Works! We’re proud that this week we got the chance to introduce you to our readers, and let them know a bit about our London campus.
