    10000 grand worth of scholarship which was renewable for consecutive years was one of the main reasons why. It also has one of the highest graduate employability issues with small class sizes and state of the art resources at our disposals. It's computer science program with co-op is known to be an extremely solid program.

    Course Curriculum :

    It was a bit overwhelming dealing in the beginning with data structures and alogrithms, e-commerce with discrete structures. Though relevant and updated, I was expecting a more basic approach in the initial stage but the program is more fast-paced and down to business than i expected which is nice to get work done as soon as possible.

    First of all, Laurentian gave me $10000 CAD as entrance scholarship was by-far the most my other friends were getting at the time in other universities. I always felt like uni with large classes would throw me off my game in uni and Laurentian has like 20-25 students per lecture. I wouldn't call it the best business program but it's decent enough to find work in Ontario.

    Course Curriculum :

    This program is focuses solely on Finance. Further opening a long trail of opportunities. Everything seems in place apart from economics but that is because I have never like eco in general. We share courses with people from different disciplines since they are mandatory to complete but some of them don't just really relate to finance like eco. The course syllabus is however seems to be in an updated shape till now.

    Cost-Efficient with the grades I got and the most convenient at the time of the year I wanted to start my school (Winter Intake).

    Course Curriculum :

    The course outline is really well set up. This university also provides co-op placements which became one of the reasons for me to join the university. There are frequent seminars of different companies in the field. Laurentian's Engineering department got a funding of $10 million CAD for its research. It also won the NASA Space Rover building Championship( I am not sure about the year). I have gone to the nearby SNOLAB which is located 2 km under the ground which also pulled over a Nobel Prize in Physics in 2015.

    Got to know from GTU website and Laurentian website also the university has a good reputation and also I took advice about student exchange program from my seniors in college they recommended to have experience in this college.

    Exams :

    As I am interested in doing my masters in Canada so I was thinking to experience a program. A normal of batch number 50 students were included in this program of our pharmacy professionals and also eligibility criteria were 7.3 and up. While the profs were very good in behaviour and also interaction.

    I wanted to stay close to home for my undergrad, would rather save money for further education out of town and be able to continue working part-time. Unfortunately, I haven't had access to the same range of programs I could get from out of town schools.

    Course Curriculum :

    It could be much more varied but good for what we're working with, electives make me feel unfocused and forget what goal I'm working towards, lowers my motivation not having a wide range of courses.
