    After a friend of mine told me about this university being a good choice, I started researching about it and the research led me to the student reviews of this university and after reading them, I was convinced that I want to pursue my masters from here only as they all said that the university is very focuses on career opportunities. I had to pay $120 for my online application form through the admission portal of the website.

    Course Curriculum :

    My program was unique, it fostered critical reflection on how technology and society interact. It offered a pragmatic and applied curriculum, addressing globalization and cultural issues alongside technical instruction. The new program will fulfill the largest growing occupational needs in government, industry and non-profit sectors. An internationally educated faculty engaged in innovative computing research will offer the program.

    Along with this being one of the oldest public universities in Canada, it is also considered to be one of the universities with better infrastructure and more facilities and these were the reasons that motivated me to apply for this university. To start the admission process, I submitted my an online application form through the online admission portal of the official website by paying an application fee of $120.

    Course Curriculum :

    My curriculum included study in subject areas of botany, zoology, microbiology, cell biology, molecular biology, ecology, animal behavior and genetics. Within these diverse subject areas, our department offers a wide variety of courses and programs that lead to both Bachelor of Science (BSc) and Master of Science (MSc) degrees. Our students are well prepared for careers in many of the areas related to biology or for further studies in professional or graduate schools.

    This university gave me an option of enjoying qualitative education, with very affordable tuition and I took it. Moreover, location was one of the factor for my admission as well, I have access to pretty much everything near my university.

    Course Curriculum :

    The Course Curriculum is very well managed. However, the course material is some courses varies to different professor, sometimes a bad professor can affect you whole course. Moreover, I found every course up-to-date with latest course material.

    7.5 /10

    The main reason was that it had small classrooms and a good environment so that I can easily make an interactive learning with my teacher.

    Course Curriculum :

    The courses are really updated and very interesting. You don't study about a particular course but you also study humanities and stuff which is an interesting point.

    I liked the average size of classes and all the professor are approachable, I have made tons of freinds here just because size is small enough to stay in touch with everyone

    Course Curriculum :

    Every professor teaches in their own style and I believe every one I have studied from is good and taught me well and are friendly as well
