STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

INDIAN STUDENTS IN CANADA

Good ranking, but there are certain negative reviews probably because students were not able to score. We have to keep in mind that it's a Masters degree and not bachelors. Expectations are meant to be high.


Course Curriculum - 

It's not easy, since I'm from India we aren't habitual of making assignments on the laptops whereas here in Canada make them on a laptop using APA style which is initially tough for everyone. Rest, nothing comes without hard work.
