I opted for this particular university because it is very close to my house compared to any other university. I only need to take one 20 minute bus ride and I'm there. I also chose it because it offers programs that I like, like physics and computer science, and acting. It is also a very accessible university
The course curriculum is very good, as it has a lot of classes Id enjoy taking. However, some of the classes are required, and should not be required, like a mandatory indigenous course
My destination was affordable international education with good reviews about the school and small class sizes where I can get to know my professors better. While finding the appropriate school for me I came across the city of Winnipeg with some very good schools. I researched about them all and found out that the University of Winnipeg orRed River College would be great options for me.
I wanted to do computer science but not the software side only. So while looking deep into the courses offered and the pattern of information systems stream I realized that this program best suited what I wanted. It is a 3-year degree program with 90 credits. There are no specific tests requirements to get into it except the IELTS for all international students.
I knew about the college through my siblings who study at the University of Manitoba, the admission process was really easy all they needed was my past transcript and my WAEC also the application fees was not too expensive compared to other universities. To be sincere my only choice was University of Winnipeg but my choice, of course, was hotel management and culinary art but when I got here I found out the University of Winnipeg does not offer that course so my second choice was social science because I also have a flair for law and justice but am sure I will still pursue my dreams here in Canada. I did my 12th grade back in my country.
I can say is that international students don't have too many opportunities but I like small classes where the teacher can put his full attention and ask questions directly but when the population is much the teacher focuses on finishing his topics. The methods of teaching varies according to the prof assigned for a course, some give handout that can help you for your exam and assignment to help the people who find it slow in learning while some do give handout but don't lay emphasis on it but I can't blame them, everyone wants to finish their work In other to not get penalized.
I am always in marketing. My family is all in the business field. Maybe because of that I am into this course. After completion of my course, I want to open a business in Winnipeg. I want to succeed in my dream and I will do all I can for that.
Public speaking will be fluent. I will have a better knowledge of digital marketing thanks to digital marketing class also written communication class will help me in email marketing and persuade others to make myself grow.
It was the closest and easiest to get too and had what I wanted for my degree. Also, it was close to my place of work, so accessibility was the biggest deciding factor I suppose. I also like that it's located downtown.
It's pretty good so far, I really enjoy all aspects except I feel there are unnecessary mathematics requirements for a psychology degree. For example, multiple statistics classes are needed and I don't feel they're necessary because I don't want to go into research.
