A good community of students, a great location. I was very happy to be accepted into it so I took it. It was my first choice and I was thrilled. Since then I am very grateful that the staff has been so amazing.
Good, sometimes quite repetitive. I do enjoy many of the assessments but I sometimes am not sure how helpful they will be once I leave. It's difficult because the curriculum is mostly ensuring that we will be able to teach not if we are good teachers.
Best employment rate and is a private college with a lot of prac preparing students for the workplace. It is local and easy to get to and specializes in education I hadn't also heard good reviews from other students.
It is very relevant to real life and what my course will challenge me with. A lot of the content is general knowledge but is relevant to raise awareness of the prevalence of societal issues that we will face in schools.
Notre Dame is the top university for nursing. More than 95 percent of graduates are statistically able to find a secure and stable job within the first 6 months of graduating, which had my attention immediately. Its also a small university where you are known by your name, rather than your student number.
The course curriculum is very thorough and teaches you about nursing in extreme depth. I do, however, believe that some content is useless such as LOGOS, which is a mandatory subject we have to take, and it is all about Philosophy and Theology.
