STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

CAPILANO UNIVERSITY - NORTH VANCOUVER, BC

I saw a brochure in my career office in high school and I applied online for a much smaller application fee than other schools. I applied to three universities in total but Capilano U was my first choice. I liked the idea of small class sizes for hard academic classes such as physics and calculus, and though a school such as UBC or SFU is more astute, I will transfer there to finish my degree. I got in with an 88% average out of high school taking 5 academics including AP biology.


Course Curriculum - 

I am working towards a bachelor of science majoring in Environment, ecology, and conservation but I still have to take two levels of calculus, which doesn't make much sense for my degree, but it is good to challenge yourself. The curriculum for most other classes are pretty regular and I enjoy it.

OVERRATED LEAVING ME UNDERWHELMED

Limited amount of film schools in Western Canada. Only about 4 in particularly in Vancouver where the film industry is most prevalent. Cheapest tuition (still very expensive) of all of the options available. The bonus was that the program included its own equipment and studio which allowed everyone to work on projects locally.


Exams - 

I chose the program because it was the closest I could get to focusing on Cinematography. However, to have to take ever film discipline, I did not have any electives after 2 years in the program. At least the student has the choice to do the 1, 2, or 4-year program and still receive some sort of recognition.

CAPU REVIEW

The university is Close to home, the admission process involves writing about volunteer and work experiences, extra-curricular activities. I had to write 2 essays. I graduated high school with an average above 95%. This was the only school I applied to as I knew I would get in and I planned to transfer out after a year or two.


Course Curriculum - 

The required courses for the first years in my program make sense, as you need them to successfully move onwards in the path of science.

CAPILANO UNIVERSITY REVIEW

In my case, I chose Capilano University to get transfer credits towards another institution since I have heard good things about their transfer program to other British Columbia universities, colleges.


Course Curriculum - 

I think the courses are offered are pretty great! Very interesting and varied to the interests of each person and their program requirements. The misconception that smaller universities and colleges have easier courses is not true at all since the full credits can be transferred where applicable.

MUSIC THERAPY AT CAPILANO UNIVERSITY

This was the only university in the province, I live in, that offers a Bachelor of Music therapy program.


Course Curriculum - 

The curriculum itself is very intense. There is a very steep learning curve in the second semester of the 3rd year, and all the students are so caring. Everyone can share their thoughts and opinions, and it just opens the space and makes the learning so much easier knowing everyone is going through the same stuff.
