  • Great University with a lot of diversity. I had a great experience and I learned a lot from amazing professors with outstanding backgrounds with a lot of accomplishment and résumés. Proud to say that this university deserves his great reputation. A lot of services offered if help is needed. Students from all over the world come here to study. Getting a degree from this university means open door for success for most of the alumni. Overall, I received a great education in this top-rated Canadian University!!
  • Very nice campus! It has a hill-like way to one of its campus buildings.
  • i believe that everywhere in the world you will find the good side and bad side of every university. there is no perfect one and since its also service based; the feeling it gives 1 person might be different to another. i am going go hopefully attend this uni and i just cant wait. from all i have read and the videos i have seen its awesome. sidenote: reduce the campus rent fee
  • Heard really good things about you people and admission staff is very very very friendly. Finally got admission toooo. Hope my further experience there will be as good as it was before admission :)
  • I am an alumni, so maybe my opinion would be biased. But great university. Wonderful faculties. My two years in the university were a great experience. Also, located literally at the heart of the city.
