  • Concordia is a really great university. I have watched students over the years come out with a fantastic education. Really great and accommodating professors, administration and staff.  more »

  • Let's start by stating that I've been doing my bachelor's degree at Concordia for the past 2 years in Computer Science. People often say that teachers are crazy but that's going a bit over the limit. Sure not all teachers are great but neither are all students. I've personally met some of my best teachers at Concordia (Aiman Latif Hanna is a good example). Teachers like these compensate for all the bad ones you will meet. Some people also tend to exagerate a teacher's lack of teaching skills simply because they have a hard time with the class and aren't bothered to study. The key to success is not only having a great teacher but also being a great student. That being said, the reason why I remove 2 stars is because of the shady activities happening behind the scene at Concordia. Bureaucracy there is complete and utter garbage. The information system has been very poorly designed, untested, and clearly overpaid for. Budget cuts for teaching assistants, maintenance of classrooms, and overall cleaning are making the experience miserable, or even unbearable sometimes. Luckily, the student base at Concordia is awesome. You get to meet all kinds of people from different corners of the globe, and you get to work with (mostly) dedicated students. It is expensive but I think that's a standard for every University. I recommend if for engineering and business degrees in English, especially if you don't like McGill's crowd.
  • Crazy teachers , you should pay for every little things, not having a strong student union, crazy law for using calculators for engineers, crowd classes even for masters students!!! Be aware that some departments are careless about their students(Exp. Department of civil and building engineer )
  • I just loved that the school is so modern and that it has a very interesting small/big concept. It is a huge school, but classes are very small.
  • Like all Universities it's an overrated scam that favors rich kids and the elite. Corrupt place too and a joke of a philosophy.
  • Honestly great experiences. But i must give such a low rating for the absolute lack of the service end. None of the admissions staff knows anything about their system, it was very frustrating to try to find any answers.

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
