3.9
Dalhousie University is a public research university in Nova Scotia, Canada, with three campuses in Halifax, a fourth in Bible Hill, and medical teaching facilities in Saint John, New Brunswick. Dalhousie offers more than 4,000 courses and 180 degree programs in twelve undergraduate, graduate, and professional faculties. The university is a member of the U15, a group of research-intensive universities in Canada.Dalhousie was established as a nonsectarian college in 1818 by the eponymous Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia, George Ramsay, 9th Earl of Dalhousie. The college did not hold its first class until 1838, until then operating sporadically due to financial difficulties. It reopened for a third time in 1863 following a reorganization that brought a change of name to "The Governors of Dalhousie College and University". The university formally changed its name to "Dalhousie University" in 1997 through the same provincial legislation that merged the institution with the Technical University of Nova Scotia.The university's notable alumni include a Nobel Prize winner, three Canadian Prime Ministers, three Herzberg Prize winners, a NASA astronaut who was the first American woman to walk in space, 90 Rhodes Scholars, and a range of other top government officials, academics, and business leaders. The university ranked 279th in the 2018 QS World University Rankings, 251-300 in the 2018 Times Higher Education World University Rankings, 301–400 in the 2017 Academic Ranking of World Universities, and 356th in the 2017 U.S. News and World Report university rankings. Dalhousie is a centre for marine research, and is host to the headquarters of the Ocean Tracking Network.

  • Dalhousie has one of the most beautiful university campuses I've ever been on. I stayed in one of the newer residences for a month in the summer and absolutely loved it. The campus is teeming with life and is really close to downtown which is nice.
  • Stupid, thinks it is not stupid but it is stupid. The professors here are stupid. The Muslim students who complain about racism are stupid too. Their ringleader is stupid. Muslim is not a race, okay? It’s a religion. The Muslim students here should stop and examine WHY nobody likes them instead of complaining about petty little “racism”. It's time that they realized that nobody cares about them and their ethnicity and that they are not as important as they think.
  • Racist and sexist environment. Condones animal testing even on little kittens and puppies. They drill in kittens heads. I hated this place. You are just a number there. They take your money but prof don't care to help you. Sexism, racism there goes well behind the dentist department and the anti muslim bashing against the student union VP. I have filed a FOI a year ago and still haven't gotten an response. My muslim friends all left the school because of the racism from prof and higher ups.
  • Blatantly racist! ...will never see a dime of tuition from me..
  • Excellent university b For networking course
