Because of the great reputation they have, the relative affordability, and the amazing engineering program (especially the Mining engineering one, which always ranks highly in the world). Another reason is the university's proximity to my home in Calgary.
I think it depends on the type of program we are talking about. For mine, I find that the course curriculum is overall well developed and tailored towards my specific major and that it sets you up enough to succeed in the future.
I live in the same city and I did not want to move out of my parent's house. I also got accepted into the physical therapy program there. I had done my undergraduate degree at the UofA so I was familiar with the institution.
It was actually very good in hindsight. At the time, I wanted to learn more specific topics, but they did exactly what they set out to do turn us into generalists. When I started working, that's when the concepts were applied. I'm actually grateful for how they taught the curriculum.
Recommended by a family member. One of my cousins is an alumnus of the University of Alberta. Also, the college advisor at my high school also recommended. The scholarships offered drove me to choose this over other schools I was accepted to.
Good, Interesting, Challenging, Fun, Makes me think a lot. Highly accredited university/faculty. Lots of relevant information and knowledge is distributed to hundreds of students.
It was the closest school to my home with the best engineering program. The engineering program in my home cities university was not as good and did not have the same number of opportunities and disciplines.
The course curriculum is very intense and complicated. It is clearly meant to weed out weaker students. But it is challenging enough to be a reputable engineering university. I am only in the first year, I don't have enough choices in my program yet but that will soon change.
Not only is the university of Alberta becoming a prestigious school, I feel like it would be beneficial to stay somewhere close to home so it's convenient. And I don't have to move out so it takes that stress away too.
A lot of the content we learn is just useless to job in general as everybody already knows. I'm just wasting my time by learning anything I'm not going to use and it's a very popular job, which makes no sense.
I opted for this university for a chance to be successful in the future and help others.
My opinion on the course curriculum is that the course could be more self-explanatory to make it easier for students to understand and more projects than what we are doing so we know what to do later on in our dream career.
Close, reasonable tuitions, good programs, it was 3rd in all of Canada. It has a good mental health program and really good advisors. It's also pretty and big! I had lots of fun clubs and lots of things to do!
The Course Curriculum is okay.
I really wanted to go to this university because it was Alberta and I wanted to go somewhere that was known for being one of the top schools in the country. And I wanted to go to a school that was not too far away from my parents.
It is challenging at times but overall it's exciting to learn new things. The professors know exactly how to structure midterms and assignments in a way that's not all that difficult but you have to apply to learn from the course material.
The program was very specific and was offered at very few schools in Canada. it was away from home but still close to the family that I didn't feel entirely alienated. The program, however, is not what I expected and now I'm reconsidering my choice.
The curriculum seems intense but is in line with the caliber of the university. The programs are extremely information based, cramming as much into your brain as possible and can be extremely overwhelming.
The University of Alberta is close to the family for me. It is located in Edmonton where my grandparents and cousins live. I also chose U of A because of its reputation and status among universities in Canada are exemplary.
It is very challenging. I struggle a lot with the amount of work we get but I love the topics. Because I am so fascinated by immunology it makes the struggle worth it. The classes are also solely based on exams for the most part which I do not like.
