    THE INTERNATIONAL LIFE

    Because I saw that they have a good reputation small college for the first year in a new country you know so it helps to integrate and also it's bilingual so I don't go directly in everything in English.


    Course Curriculum - 

    They should do the more real practice there is too much theoretical and some very hard theoretical that you know and feel it's not important like it's not very motivating we are not able to see how some classes can help us in the real world.

    STORY OF GLENDON COLLEGE'S STUDENT

    I choose this campus because it was smaller than other schools, and I feel that I connect better in smaller spaces. Also, it is a bilingual campus, and French is something I took all four years in high school so it only made sense to follow through.


    Course Curriculum - 

    It could be hard at times but is achievable with the right mindset as someone with a double major it?s harder than the average person but I do wish there were more options in the courses offered in the history department.

    GLENDON BILINGUAL COLLEGE REVIEW

    Glendon College is the bilingual college at York and I was interested in pursuing a bilingual certificate program. I also liked the smaller class sizes and closer interaction with professors and other staff.


    Course Curriculum - 

    It is a little disorganized, especially in terms of the French. While they provide the placement test, the level of french they put you in is not always accurate and moving from one level to another (without actually doing the course) is quite a lengthy process.

    DECENT

    Glendon College offers many great programs however the deciding factor for me was its French programs. As a bilingual student, it was important for me to find not only a program but also a college and an environment that provided many bilingual opportunities.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The curriculum of the Bachelor of Arts in French studies is very good, it offers many opportunities to expand your French skills as well as many different levels of French classes from basic to expert.
