FAIRLEIGH DICKINSON UNIVERSITY VANCOUVER ALUMNI STORY.

I got to know about the university through the consultant in India, the process was simple, I submitted my docs along with some requirements like IELTS, the fees for one course was about 3000 CAD. I applied for 3 other universities in USA. I liked the weather of Vancouver along with the opportunities to do things outside campus.


Exams - 

IELTS score was 7 bands overall. I loved the program since it was a blend of MS plus MBA,class size was about 20 students per course, I had a total of 30 credits. Minimum requirements were about 3 GPA, plus IELTS score of 6.5 with no backlogs. I also loved the different courses they offered since I loved administrative sciences.

FUN AT CONCORDIA

I was unsure of what school to apply to and the application period for most schools for the fall intake was already closed. But Fairleigh Dickinson does rolling admission and I applied immediately. Due to the school being an American University in Canada, the degree can also be accepted in both the US and Canada.


Course Curriculum - 

The course curriculum varies depending on the course you are taking as some courses are easier than others. The curriculum is determined by the instructor and this will vary. I find some course curriculum to be simple while difficult for others.
