I wanted to get admission in the university that offers an extensive learning program in computing and fine arts as it is my area of interest. One of my school teachers also recommended me to apply at this university. Thus I applied for the university. Luckily my application was accepted by the university. The application form's fee cost me $105.

I wanted to get admission in the college that offers an extensive learning program in computing and fine arts as I was my area of interest, and after hearing a lot about this college from the teachers in India, I made my mind to apply in this college and by god' grace got admission in this university as well. Applied online at the OUAC, paid around 100 CAD as the application fee.
The course curriculum is designed to make learning much easier for students. It's a 4-years honors programs consist of 120 unit credits. Through the program, we get to participate in advanced courses in Art, Drama, Film, or Music, while maintaining a solid concentration in Computer Science and Mathematics.
It offers a good Music program, and when I auditioned I didn't think I'd get in but I received my letter of acceptance in April. It was one of my top choices out of 4 that I applied to. I really wanted to go to Queen's because it's reputable and several of my cousins went there. I was an Honour Roll student and I had a B+ average.
There's about 40 students per year in my faculty and a lot of people drop out or switch programs within the first and second year. There are only 7 professors within the Music faculty- and only a few are full-time professors that teach our core courses. Teaching includes lectures mainly and showing musical examples and excerpts. Listening, ear training and sight-singing as well.
Its reputation and sense of community is something I was immediately attracted to. Also, Queen's prides itself on its traditions and heritage that are part of its history as an educational institution. Also, Queen's is a fair distance away from my hometown so it's not hard to get home if needed but also I'm far away at the same time.
I enjoy what I learn in my program a lot! Sociology is very all-encompassing in which topics I learn can be anything among the following and more: surveillance, technology, consumer culture, gender and feminist theory, labor, or urban development. I believe the content is interdisciplinary and I enjoy that the most about the curriculum.
Queen's is renowned for having one of the best commerce programs in the country. Plus exchange abroad in the third year! Kingston is also relatively close to home and is a gorgeous campus. The school offers a ton of extracurriculars too.
Queen's Commerce offers an extremely well-structured curriculum. You are exposed to all areas of commerce in the first and second year and then given free rein in your third and fourth years. The best part about Queen's Commerce is the opportunity to join conferences and other executives
The school spirit is excellent, I think it's unrivaled in Canada. The campus is beautiful, with scenic views and an awesome lake for events. Buildings and infrastructure are excellent as well. Finally, there is an excellent community feel.
My course curriculum is very good. It is incredibly thorough and well prepares me for working in economics. At the same time, it is incredibly difficult as a result and many people end up dropping out of the program.
Parents went there. Was originally in the con-Ed program, one of few in the province. It was far away from home while being less than a day?s travel. Cost of living was much lower than home, and it had a vibrant queer community.
Curriculum was comprehensive, and offered a wide range of subjects within mathematics. Everything from actuary studies to complex analysis to game theory was offered as courses. Professor quality varied.
Knew a lot of friends that planned on attending the university and had a strong interest in their cheerleading team. A great community environment and a very pretty campus felt very welcomed. It was very easy to make friends.
They offer a great variety of courses in my program. Some courses are better organized than others, most are weighted well and fairly graded. Some required courses were not very useful but a lot taught me a lot that I will be able to apply to future courses.
Because of the ability to take courses in multiple disciplines (a Bachelor of Arts within the Concurrent Education program has allowed me to pursue a drama major, English minor, and Certificate in Business prior to my final year in primary junior teaching).
It is in depth and reasonable, although slightly liberal. The best courses are ones that have curriculum focusing on current events and relevancy to real life (e.g. Arts Administration, Organizational Behaviour).
I felt the school had a good reputation for engineering and I also liked the city, sitting lakeside like my hometown. The school also provided me with scholarships that I could not turn down.
I feel that the course curriculum was quite intense but certainly manageable. As I progressed into higher years, I found a suitable routine and organization strategy that worked to balance work and personal life.
