3 Student Reviews of Niagara College : Niagara-on-the-Lake (NOTL) Campus (Applied Arts and Technology)

  • I was a student in the BA of Applied Business International Business and Global Development program.
    Things worth mentioning, the school offers domestic students great opportunities to travel with available grants and scholarships to aid the fees associated with it.
    In almost every class for three years, there were group work projects and presentations.
    Group projects are not graded individually so take initiative.
    If you look to transfer credits over, from Niagara College to another university, they will likely not be accepted, unless it is Brock U (apparently). So, this is important to understand, if you decide to try and take online courses, but the “higher up” persons tell you that you cannot take online courses as they do not hold an equivalent weight for the BAB program. Meaning, they are for certificate programs and diplomas, BUT in the end, it is BS because other schools don’t recognize half the courses you take at Niagara to be of equivalency, so if you wish to take online courses, you should be able to do so. Another flaw would be transportation. It is terrible. Very limited, it does not run too late. If you live near campus, you will have nowhere to do your groceries, unless they have placed a new grocery store in the shopping centre but I still doubt this!
    On the plus side, most professors in the International Commerce and Global Development program are fantastic and very knowledgeable. They will push you to do your best and provide you with the confidence required to be successful, if you let them.
    The campus is very green, this can be soothing when you need to release your exam stresses.
    Financial Aid and Administration are nice, and very helpful, even in hard times when they are busy. Do not hesitate to schedule a meeting, they will try their best to help.
    The International Commerce & Global Development program incorporates ethics, in which not many- if any programs do. It is helpful in providing insight to a much larger picture than just “business as usual” per say Friedman style.
    Student council is great. The campus has a lot of diversity, you can learn from many people, so many things you’d never imagine (beyond academics).
    I think overall, there is much value to this program, and I have minimal regrets, though there are some challenges, as applicable to all schools. Just don’t give up if you wish for the online courses, we should all be entitled with lack of credit for credit recognition.
    And, do travel when the opportunities arise, the school has a great International Relations department, whom will ensure your comfort to the best of their ability!
    Keep in mind, some local highlights, if you live in Niagara (St. Catharines) you are only one bus away from Toronto- and megabus in particular is quite affordable, if you need to fulfill a co-op, this information can help you. As well, Niagara Falls is always worth sightseeing, and you do have many beaches around. There are perks to living in Niagara, though job prospects can be slim. Niagara Falls is great for experience in Tourism and there are transportation options, just try to live near a terminal, I personally found this helpful.

    Best wishes to future NC students!

    Cheers

  • I went to this school a few years ago. Some of the teachers are good, but others screw you over, and then lie to the program coordinator, saying that you’re lazy and didn’t do any of the work. One teacher in particular seemingly made a hobby out of singling out students and giving them failing grades, even though they didn’t deserve to fail.
    They also give you absolutely no help, for finding a co-op placement. I was never able to find a placement, and I still haven’t received my diploma, (5 years later) even though I passed all of the required classes, because the co-op placement is required for graduation as well. And there are no jobs in the Niagara area, so good luck in finding a co-op placement. Personally, I think that if they’re going to make it a requirement for graduation, they should give you at least a little bit of help, like giving you a list of employers you can send your resume to, but they don’t even do that. You’re completely on your own.
    The staff at the school doesn’t give a damn about your problems, because they already have your money, and that’s all they care about.
