All in all very good experience.
Haskayne is the best.
Can’t wait to go back for a master’s soon.
The professors at University of Calgary are very engaging and encouraging. There hasn’t been a moment where I felt unseen or unheard by any of them, and my peers as well. Although, due to COVID, some interaction has been limited and has made it difficult to get the full value of some of my courses without the face to face interactions.View more
The University of Calgary is a pretty good place to study. They have an excellent research program for most faculties and offer tons of studentships. Many computer science professors are also really good. However, more classes should be provided that teach recent computer science applications like Machine Learning.View more
In the pandemic, school has been hard for everyone, and I believe everyone everywhere is just tolerating it. Most learning is done online and it is difficult to learn like that on some days. I know of the student services that my uni offer but I never had to use them. There’s writing help and other things, you can see that stuff on their website. But when dealing with my mental health I struggle with getting work done and on time and there’s no student help for that, you’re left at the mercy of your profs. Most of my professors have been understanding, although I tell them I couldn’t do it or I got sick, I can never admit that it’s cause of my mental health. Your learning experience can be good if your prof is understanding and caring and has a good syllabus for the class. I think it is worth it if you’re passionate/interested in what you’re studying even though you’re unsure of what career path you want. The only issue is the cost, and over the years it’s just increasing and that becomes discouraging. Like I said it’s bearable. You just gotta tolerate it and that goes for any post-secondary school.View more
In my past experience at the University of Calgary, I have encountered lots of support from both the students and professors which have led me to become a successful student. The professors are extremely considerate, all the while explaining the material we learn thoroughly. There is continuous school spirit surrounding the campus, making it an enjoyable place to be. Additionally, the University of Calgary strives to make the campus inclusive and multicultural, making it a great benefit for international students. Overall, I have enjoyed my time as a student here so far.View more
To be really honest, there is a lot scope of improvement, as civil engineering programs should include practical approach for solving a system, but in my university professors and Ta’s are so lazy that they don’t really focus on this area, For them student should do everything by their own, professor needs to help students more.View more
As an engineering student, I would highlight the high-quality facilities at the University of Calgary. There are high-technology devices in classes and labs for engineering students to develop their skills. However, some professors are not good at explaining the topics they teach and assuming that students understand most of the topics. Hence, the school could improve on reviewing the professors’ deliverable skills. The students’ life here is a combination of happiness and stress. The engineering program itself is already heavy, but there are school activities that help relieve the students’ stress. Compared to many universities in Canada, the University of Calgary has pretty good tuition for international students. The university also provided advising and notified job and research positions for students.View more
My program is unique as no one knows what it is. I think that is what makes it so cool. The entire program name is Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies and what makes it worthwhile is the incorporation of practicum placements within the degree. When you graduate you come out with a bunch of work experience in the community health care field that is already embedded within your classes. It is a very interdisciplinary degree as everyone in it is doing different things. Everything from med school, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology, is like a stepping stone to whatever your interests are. I think the program is not as difficult either making it a great GPA booster if you are looking towards for example Med or physiotherapy school that requires a very high GPA to get in. In terms of the University of Calgary itself, I think the best way to describe it is the best bang for your buck school. It is incredibly cheaper than other Universities but has aspects of greek life, social life, and a great night scene. It is a great in-between from heavy party schools such as Queens/Western and commuter schools in your area. I think the University of Calgary provided me with the best well rounded experienced and being so close to the city provided me with so many opportunities to network, one that many people don’t get going to Universities in smaller towns. It is also quite diverse despite the stereotype of Calgary being the “texas” of Canada. I think it is a great option for people to look into especially if research is your calling.View more
I am currently enrolled in psychology at UofC. Firstly, the application process is seamless, the advisors are exceptionally helpful. You can contact them at any time in regards to class schedules, finding your way around, and admissions, etc. They will tell you what you NEED to take and what you can take as options. I found the classes to be very diverse, fun, and educational. The material is very up to date and relevant to the time. The professors are very lively for the most part and make each class entertaining, although, there are a couple of downsides to some professors, a short-list of the professors I had lacked organizational skills and gave grades back later than they anticipated. However, this is not common from my experience. One of my favourite aspects of the University of Calgary is that there are many opportunities to get to know your classmates, whether that is joining a club, the gym, or meeting up around campus/through classes. I find that there are a lot of international students as I know personally some people from Malaysia, India, and Europe who are in my graduating year. Another thing is that there is an endless amount of research opportunities, there are high-end labs you can participate in if science is your thing and you choose a BA! The lab work is exceptionally fun!View more
The University of Calgary is a state of the art educational institution with a caring and respectful Professor who also offers excellent hands-on learning experience helping me to excel in my own career.View more
