    WILFRID LAURIER UNIVERSITY REVIEW

    I chose the Brantford campus WLU because of the small-town feel. It's a fairly small university so it didn't feel overwhelming. I felt at home in a small town. It's a tight-knit community and I love that. My program is unique to the campus so I was very excited about that too. I couldn't imagine being in any other program at any other school.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I think the curriculum is pretty fair. The assignments are manageable and you are given due dates right at the beginning of the term. As long as you manage your time and go to (the majority) of lectures you'll be fine.

    WILFRID LAURIER UNIVERSITY: LETS PLAN OUR CAREER

    I decided to do my masters from USA while I was pursuing my graduation. I applied to various universities but got selected in Wilfrid. Also, the MBA program of the university was highly ranked which further motivated me to join the university.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I think the MBA course here is very much flexible and designed according to the lifestyle the student wants to choose. We can choose to do a full-time MBA program or only on weekends. The course also offers an extensive selection of electives. This makes the course more flexible and we get to study some unique subjects that are not available in most of the B-schools. We get to choose a specialization and there is also a 2-week business trip abroad to learn about international business.

    MY EXPERIENCE AS AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT

    Because it had a small campus and a community feel. I enjoyed the feel of the campus when I was researching it. Additionally, this was one of the few universities in Canada where they did offer a co-op program to art students.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I really enjoy some of the courses I am enrolled in. In Particular, I really enjoy all the digital media classes as it combines education with technology and helps me learn better. I also find it really interesting that online classes have great engagement.

    WIFRID LAURIER UNIVERSITY REVIEW

    It had the program I wanted and has a really good community. The campus is nice and small so it is easy to get to know everyone. The professors are nice and helpful. The university staff help make the school feel welcoming so I went.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The course curriculum is interesting I feel like I'm always learning new things that will help me with my job in the future. I also love how it's set up and the slow increase of difficulty over the years so it's easy to adapt.

    REVIEW OF POLSCI STUDENT AT WLU

    I opted for this university because of the unique program that it provided. Political science BA with an LLB Law degree in England. It also had a small campus which made it more personalized. It is number 1 in student satisfaction.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I really like the course curriculum. I think that the choices that it offers are very unique and interesting. The one thing I do not like about it is the mandatory taking of the second data management class.
