    At Glendon, innovation, open pedagogy, and entrepreneurship are at the forefront of its vision to prepare students to acquire competencies for the future of work, to contribute to knowledge creation, and to have an impact on the York University community and the wider world. After securing a GPA of 8, I had applied to the university through a free online application form.

    Course Curriculum :

    Mathematics is the study of the various branches of pure and applied math. Given its almost unlimited applications to the real world, mathematics is an essential ingredient of general education. A mathematics degree can lead to work as a business analyst, statistician, researcher, or educator. The rigorous training I received in all mathematics courses enabled me to pursue a career of my choice in the public or private sector or to continue education on a graduate level.

    My mother graduated from Western, and I love living In London. I applied late due to a change in majors, and applied to three schools overall. I applied through OUAC, and it costed $150, if I remember correctly. My grade twelve average was eighty eight percent, and the cutoff was eighty seven for my year.

    Course Curriculum :

    I enjoy it. Some are tedious, but overall, I'm allowed to pick much of what I like.

    I already decided to pursue my studies in the field of English and this college has the perfect course that I was looking for. I got admission in BA English. My friend recommended me this college. Because of the simple admission procedure, I attained an offer letter easily. I have done my +2 in Arts and scored 95% marks in English and 70% overall. I applied to the university through York Universities Application and submitted an application fee of $120.

    Course Curriculum :

    As I opted for BA in English which is a theoretical subject. I was completely amazed by seeing that the university set such kind of curriculum that some practical Subjects are also there which is necessary to stand in the professional world. Research part is also there in the degree which will surely give me an exposure in research and development part.

    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.

    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.
