    New Journey

    University of Waterloo is a very nice and quiet place to study. There are a lot of resources to help students, especially international students, to feel welcomed and settle down. What I disliked about the university is that there is no way to travel to campuses after 1st year. Since I’m in the Stratford campus it’s a struggle to commute there. So I would recommend providing travel facilities.

    Guided Student Success

    My university experience so far has been a very positive one. Despite the fact that the global pandemic changed my schooling to online, I found that the guidance councillors and advisors made an effort to ensure they were a prominent resource for the students. From weekly reminders and prompts to reach out if help was needed, to rapid responses in stressful situations, the academic advisors displayed their active presence. They have assisted me countless times, most recently with a study abroad term that required many steps and signatures. These faculty members have made my university experience and swift one. I am also very much enjoying my program as the classes that I am required to take teach me skills that I never thought I needed throughout my studies and my life. I am learning communication skills, business and leadership skills, as well as collaboration and independence. What I enjoy so much about my program is the diversity of skills that are taught, and the promotion of breadth. As an Honours Art and Business student, I am required to take a number of business courses, art courses devoted to my major and minor as well as breadth course which range from cultural studies to biology courses. My program does their best to ensure my success in becoming a well-rounded individual.

    AMAZING PROFESSORS

    I have only been a student at University of Waterloo for a year now; something significant I have noticed is the amount of energy professors put into their classes as well as their students themselves. Creating that connection between professor and student is not only crucial to mental health but also makes it easier to get up each day and head to class

    Social Life in Waterloo

    Now being as Waterloo is known for its prestigious engineering and arts programmes there’s often concern amongst those joining on how the social aspect is in the University. Waterloo is very much a student-based city with Wilfred Laurier and Conestoga College all neighbouring the University of Waterloo. What this means is that most people moving from abroad or even within Canada will have the ability to meet people similar to them even if it’s outside the borders of the school. Whilst the school may challenge some and require most to have to work to find a balance between their social life and academics there is a lot of support from the university itself to make well-rounded members of society.

    University Experience

    The University of Waterloo Arts Program is an excellent program that allows for flexibility and personalization of courses. In this program, you can major and minor or even double major in a variety of subjects. I have found that classes offered by the university colleges tend to be smaller in size and allow you to get to know your professors. The campus itself is large and there are many spaces and events to attend and use. The one downside to this university is the workload. You have to have a strong work ethic and spend many hours a day studying to achieve desired grades. The residence (particularly the university college) tends to be rundown and difficult to live in. Overall, the university’s academic offerings tend to be very easy to personalize and offer a high satisfaction of education. I have enjoyed my time at the University of Waterloo.

    Outstanding University

    The AFM (Accounting and financial management) program is a very well developed program. It focuses on building core concepts in the area of accounting and finance. The incentive of this program is the Co-op. Based on our grades and our interview we are admitted to the co-op. The companies are top-notch in their industry. The overall experience is wonderful. The professors are qualified and helpful.

    Great program

    Health Studies is an amazing program at the University of Waterloo. I met lifelong friends and colleagues that are pursuing careers in Health Sciences. I learned skills needed for health administration, epidemiology and medicine. The campus was always my favourite place to be. It felt like a city that was student catered. It felt safe, friendly and positive. The faculty is full of motivating people who genuinely care about the well-being and productivity of the students. My experiences with the University of Waterloo will forever hold a place in my heart and memories. I still consider it my home away from home.

    Great Course Combinations!

    I have thoroughly enjoyed my student experience at the University of Waterloo. The MPH program is quite thorough, and very practical with a full course load and covers almost all the competencies required for this discipline. It is an international school, with great diversity! The area the school could improve on is in ensuring that the plethora of courses they have is made available throughout the terms. The MPH program has great career prospects and having a degree from UWaterloo certainly opens doors. I would recommend this school!

    Solid Engineering Program

    Waterloo is a great school for the program I am in (engineering, specifically nanotechnology). This was the only school in Canada that provides my program in as great of a location as it is in. It is smaller in comparison to schools in the metro Toronto area, meaning the school itself caters to fewer students. Smaller class sizes come out of this, and the quality of the professors is quite high in my view. I would definitely recommend this school to those looking for the best engineering school in Canada. This is a specialized school, so those looking for programs outside of the sciences should look to the bigger schools in the Toronto area.
