4 Student Reviews of Algonquin College : Ottawa

  • This college is terrible with planning and helping student success all together if there is option for 0 STAR I would give them 0….here are some problem I have with them:

    Frist issue I have with them is that they list a numbers of differences course that you can take for your selective course, but they never let you choose them, they will put you in a course that they want you to be in. once I see I cant pick the course that I want to learn, I go to see my coordinal of my program and he just said, well sorry folks those class are full, we cant extended them! those class are priority for those are specifically apply for that course, and they are all full now. Then why are you putting it as a option when you are advertising them? and tell us sorry you cant take them, because they are not for your program.

    second issue, is that they will include the e-textbook rental fees in your tuition fee without option for you to opt out…. well let say I want to keep that book for references later on, I have to go to the bookstore and pay for that book again? and they are not cheap!

    Third issue is that all the new Professor are part-time, most of them don’t even go through colleges of teaching or anything similar to that… they know how to work in their field but not teaching us what we need to understand, some of them can even speak English fluently… let say if we cant understand what they are saying, how can we understand what they are trying to teach us? do they really care about us? do they care about our future? my answer would be no in my case.

    Fourth Issue is that I went for a Computer program (2 year course plus co-op) after my 1st co-op term, I didn’t receive any email from school asking for the second term co-op letter of offer or anything like that. they took the money for the co-op term and in middle of Co-op term where I am about to submit my assignment, I couldn’t find the course to be available. Call them up, they said I was withdraw because I have no placement….. and took 150 out of 499 that I pay for the course, and yet they are not the one that find the job for me… I have to go and find it myself…. talking about find the job myself, they have something call Resume prof read, and that I am not sure what are they prof reading, I have to get other friend of my to look at it and help me time to time for my resume( after the colleges prof read and said yes it look perfect.)

    Fifth issue is that they want more and more money every year and as early as they can get… my course wont start until Sept. 7 and I have to pay my tuition fee by June 15 the latest or else there would be penalty on that…and the funny thing is the timetable wont be available until AUG. 5th and I need the time table to coordinate with my work to see if I can continues to work part-time for this company(THIS IS MY FUTURE!!!!!!!!!!) call them up and check for time table today and all I get is sorry cant help you…so much for “student success is our priority and our goal” ….Great here you go my money take it and go….

    My concludes is think twice and research more before you make your choice!!!!!
    and if you ask me do I recommend this college I would say NO!

  • Half of the teachers are good, the other half so so to bad. Many have God’s complex. Overall education

  • I chose the course of construction projects manager , studied online, they call when you need to pay and very diligent , but when you have paid you are unlikely to get timely help to deal with both types of system functions online learning , it is difficult to understand ( which all of FIG after you pay tuition ) . We were told here will Maurice Jervie teacher – that’s who was horrified when these courses or did not respond to the letter, and when, because of my insistence , he replied with an ulcer and blatant insult , like ” you’re there do baby movements ….. ” ( as you know it but do not tell babies to adults , especially the man who teaches not only the specialty but also must have the professional ethics ) . At the end of the course I had to fill out a form type is what I think about the course of the professor and all that, I said that the courses weak meager little cognitive , professor very big slacker and vulgar ignoramus . For what I received the worst evaluation here’s honesty and fairness of this college gained such intruders and give these papers but there is no knowledge who does not, it’s sad that leave graduates with diplomas without having knowledge and very sad that you can learn a lot more than money and official legal speculators as Algonquin college . All praise this college because as long as you do everything on a miserable note you get too easily this paper called a diploma I shook the country in which the future professionals at this level.
