I only applied to this college. Closest to my house. I visited another college but it was out of town. It's cheaper to stay at my parent's house while studying. Until I finish my certificate and can't afford to live on my own, I will search for another university that offers culinary arts. The University of Regina also has a lot of courses to offer. And they were the first to offer the Coop program for students to study and work to earn money. They also have a guarantee program where if you don't find a job after graduating you can come back and study for a year free of charge.
All the business classes I've had have been awesome. The professors were pretty chill and I was able to learn a lot from them.
Close to home So I could keep my job and drive home every weekend. It also has a great pre-professional program for pre-med, pre-dentistry, pre-pharmacy that puts the kids together and they make friends and have labs and classes together. It brought me my closest friends and they are people who think like me.
Very good course curriculum.
I was in the last semester of my undergraduate education, where I majored in psychology and creative writing. I was planning to go to graduate school for psychology, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I didn't want to compromise one of my interests for the other, and I really wanted a career that would let me combine writing and storytelling with research and analysis.
I am mostly thrilled with the course curriculum. We are given a very broad overview of different forms of journalism, with more of an emphasis on broadcast than I might have chosen (but is nevertheless probably a good idea in the current job market), and I think that we will graduate with a very strong and competitive skill set. I am particularly pleased with the program's focus on indigenous perspectives in journalism. I wish, however, that we were required to take more courses outside of our department. For journalism, in particular, knowing how to tell "a" story is one thing (and it's what we learn in our major courses), but knowing how to tell "a given" story depends on our other knowledge bases.
One of my family friends told me that Regina is a cost-effective place to live compared to Toronto. Tuition is less compare to other universities. A peaceful and quiet place to live. Countryside living nice and friendly peoples. Most important my friends were already here. The University of Regina was the best option to study because it's going to give me more than I have invested.
I already have a university bachelors degree and I needed the Canadian validation to my education. This course one-year short course related to my field that's why I choose this. I don't need to give any entrance exam for this course. I just need English proficiency test. This course only needs overall 6.00 IELTS score.
The University of Regina is currently ranked at 29 in Canada which made me attract towards it, thus I wanted to get into it and finally being in this university made my dream come true. Moreover, it provides a good study and works environment for all students without racism. The University of Regina also gives a good range of programs for its students for all the faculty. So, I am proud to be a part of UofR.
To add to this, the main admission requirements were 65% in High school and overall 6.5 bands in IELTS.
