    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    A STUDENT OF ROMANIA IN CANADA

    I wanted to get settle down in Canada. Thus I searched for the colleges that offer a Masters course in Pharmacy. I went through a list of best colleges and universities that provided the course. Then I came across the University of Saskatchewan. After a bit of research work, I decided to take admission in the university. I applied through an application that cost me $150.


    Course Curriculum - 

    This course offers me an interesting curriculum that is worth studying. I am allowed to have an extraordinary opportunity of creating new knowledge, advancing the field of pharmacy and becoming agents of change in improving health quality locally, nationally and internationally. My curriculum also focusses on the pure sciences like chemistry, biology, physics, mathematics, and Applied sciences. It is divided into sections such that there is no tedious study and we get enough time for recreational activities.
