My program taught me very crucial knowledge at Algonquin College. One central thing I learned was how crucial a person’s life is from birth to 6 years old – this period is the foundation of the rest of your life. As a current child educator, the knowledge I gained from this program advanced my expertise in my career. Algonquin in general was a very nice environment at that time. There was good accommodation for all ages, and backgrounds, and there was more respect provided to me as an immigrant living in Canada. I remember the school being very international and this program opened up doors for me in the child development field of work. I would recommend this school to those contemplating it.View more
I was told that college would be the best few years of your life. It ended up not being that. Algonquin College milks you for every single penny they can get out of you. The school goes into Coronavirus lockdown and makes all classes online. They still charge you for gym fees and bus passes. On top of that, I graduated with honours but couldn’t tell you a single thing I learned. Don’t feel prepared for the working world at all. Who knows, maybe it’s not just Algonquin College and all post-secondary schools are like this. The only positive is the friendships I made with the people who went there.View more
Algonquin Business Administration program would have been somewhat effective in person however, with the transition to online learning in the midst of a pandemic they failed to fully prepare their professors with the necessary skills they would need to succeed in making the classes interesting, effective or even barnacle for students. My experience at Algonquin consisted of staring at a screen full of turned off cameras and listening to a prof who clearly had as little interest in the content as we all did in learning it.View more
Algonquin College for public relations.
I have learned useful experiences such as special events, crisis communications, fundraising, social media management, media kits and many more thing.
The focus of this semester was to organize an event charity campaign the class was all organizing. I was the team leader and social media lead that made sure everything fell into place and promoted our event. I think making this the main focus for the semester was a great learning experience and got us into the real world and dip our feet in event planning for a public relations agency or big company.
The only bad thing I have is that some classes are unorganized, which made it hard to understand what we were learning but overall this program is a fun program to be in and kind of keeps you on your feet because you never know what’s gonna happen.View more
The Advertising and Marketing Communications program at Algonquin College is first class. The courses are engaging and the professors are experienced in their field of study. Many of the professors have worked directly in the business world and they bring these skills to the classroom environment. The opportunities for collaboration and leadership are a positive aspect as well, as they will prepare you for the Advertising and Marketing industry. Students are challenged on a regular basis to create content that exceeds expectations. The Advertising and Marketing Communications program is one that will prepare you for the workforce.View more
My program was Media and communication my program had few people in each classroom which made it easy for us to have a relationship with our professors it felt more genuine than in other university classrooms. Overall a great experience.View more
I picked this degree because it will provide me with several chances and allow me to travel. It’s even more intriguing in that the tourist industry encourages economic growth and a sustainable environment. It made me realize that it would be better if I could work in the hotel business. The course is not challenging in general, but it will test your knowledge of promoting and advertising a specific place. Exams are also not difficult, and it is pretty unusual for someone to retake topics. All we need to do is become familiar with the destination and become comfortable with the main elements of the location, and everything will fall into place.
My teachers throughout my two years were terrific, except for one teacher in my marketing course in my 3rd year. Oh, what a pain in the butt. However, with hardship comes ease. It was all worth it. I recommend this program to anyone who has a deep passion and love for aviation, travel, and event hospitality.View more
The Health Science department was not good with coordination and they won’t help you much with your clinical placements. They’re just quick to knock you down when you’re faced with an inconvenience and are not willing to consider your situation at all.View more
