I chose the University of Ottawa because they offered a coop program. I also chose this school because I felt that as I wanted to go into account the fact that their business program allowed you to specialize early on was a plus.
Some classes could be more up to date as some material in relation to technology is no longer relevant while other courses as long as they are taught by professors who understand the material well and want the students to learn are beneficial.
This university allows me to live at home. Also, it's one of the best post-secondary institutions in Canada. The faculty for the program is great. The university also has collaborations with several hospitals in Ottawa. This allows for more clinical placements and more post-graduate opportunities.
The course curriculum is a bit heavy. However, the professors are very understanding and try to make sure you understand the content well. The professors are always available after hours if you need more clarity. The university also offers study sessions for most of the more difficult courses.
Ottawa is the capital city and where Parliament is, though it was a good idea to study politics and make connections in the heart of where it all happens. Also a good chance to learn French in a bilingual city
For my specific program, I like that the course structure is relatively more open as you go into your upper years. I have a wide variety of courses to choose from which usually has multiple class timings.
As I'm studying a field that is constantly changing under our feet, I opted for the University of Ottawa for its unique experience in the capital city of Canada. Additionally, I like the city for its small-town feels but big city infrastructure.
The School of International Development and Global Studies is fairly new, and as a result, I feel that the curriculum is underdeveloped in the junior years. In the first two years, one must take a starter course for international development for each year. So far, I find that these courses are incredibly similar and result in content overlapping. I do know that the School is aware and that formal steps to remedy this (such as documenting student's opinions by conducting focus groups) are taking place.
I knew I wanted to go to a University outside of my home town. I also wanted to go to enroll in a well-known Nursing program. Going to a school in a bigger city was also something I was looking for. My first choice school was McMaster but as I didn't get in for Nursing, I chose to go to my second choice school which was the University of Ottawa and I am very happy with the decision I made as it has been a good fit for me.
I think the curriculum is interesting and applicable. There are a couple of classes I think are just filler classes and should not be required. The organization of the laboratory classes is deplorable and a big source of stress for many of the students.
Offers a great business program also in a great city right downtown Ottawa. Many specialities to choose from within the commerce program. Ottawa is also the capital city so there are lots of places to visit and there is always something to do downtown.
I believe that some courses should not be mandatory for this program especially since we specialize in our program. For example, I feel as if I should not have to take human resources because I'm in finance, but I do agree that having knowledge of every part of a business is helpful
It was close to my family and got good ratings for the program that I was looking to attend. I also really liked the campus and being right downtown. I knew a lot of friends who were attending.
We cover relevant information that is applicable in the workplace. Some courses could be designed better.
It is in my hometown so I could save money on living costs my first year, they have an amazing nursing program with many affiliate hospitals and they offer to school in French which for me was important.
The course curriculum is very challenging, there are lab components, clinical and theory. It takes some adjusting and some serious time management skills but the content is fascinating. There is a lot of content learned very quickly.
The program is a business and technology program. I knew business is very important and technology will rule the world in the future. In high school, I also assumed there will always be a job in this field.
I think the course curriculum needs to be more hands-on and condensed into a 3-year program. I believe they make it longer as it makes more money. I have found out that a similar program in college would have been much better for me.
I decided to go to this university because it was the only that offered French and English classes meaning that I could complete my assignments in either language and not be penalized. It is also the closest university to my family which I didn't want to leave.
The course curriculum is pretty tough and some classes shouldn't be part of it because I personally find them irrelevant to the course I'm taking. Such as taking linear algebra for chemistry is useless because that math won't ever be used in that context.
