11 Student Reviews of Niagara College : Welland

  • After missing three days of school because my car broke and I live two hours away my chemistry and biology teachers both told me to drop out and not come back. Nuff said

  • This review is for the welding techniques program at Welland. I can tell you to avoid this “college” (read: corporation) if you are looking for an education in this field. Here is my experience:

    I registered as an international student for a January start. I chose a “landing pad” home stay (one month). They put me in a house with no nearby bus route, so I had to walk 30 minutes each way in the dead of winter, or rely on my landlady’s charity to give me a ride once in a while. They couldn’t care less about you once they have your tuition check.

    They require that you but 500 dollars worth of text books of which you will be using about 10%.

    The instructors are a bunch of sad, frustrated older guys who obviously did not plan for retirement and are now forced to work to make a living. They apply a minimum effort strategy and are bothered immensely if you ask them questions or god forbid, make a mistake. We were left to our own devices in the welding booth as there was one instructor for 16 students, so we rarely received one on one guidance.

    The coursework is laughable and at junior high level.

    There are zero industry connections and there is no assistance for graduates to get a job or coop after graduation. After one year of study, you will only come out with a flat/horizontal stick CWB ticket if you are lucky (and pay $350 for the privilege to test).

    on paper, NC boasts about their student health services, but when we tried to use them, we were sent to the only private clinic in town as they either had no appointments or the doctor was away for weeks at a time.

    Welland itself is a kind of twilight zone town. it is filled with elderly people, junkies and transients. if it wasn’t for the college and the hospital, it would be a ghost town. Rent is expensive, public transport is barely adequate. Be prepared to ride with mentally unstable people and foreign students yell-talking and blasting music on their cellphones.

    I ended up getting physically sick as a result of all this stress. I made the decision to transfer to another college at the end of the 1st semester and that was the best thing that could happen to me. I now have CWB and TSSA tickets, and did a 3 week coop in an actual weld shop.

    They will try to dazzle you with their website and brochures, and brag about how much money they spend in the facilities, but I can tell you from personal experience that it’s a bait and switch operation, only designed to get your money. I fell in the trap. If you are seriously considering this place, I recommend that you try to talk to actual alumni and get their feedback before you commit.

  • Niagara college should shut down.
    It doesn’t have the resources needed to provide a successful education – even though you bet you’ll be charged for it! My program (EMA) is offered as a January start, however niagara college failed to warn us that the school is literally closed in the summer months. As long as youre not a full time student at the school expecting to receive a decent education for what you have paid for, then you won’t be disappointed. But the fact is– YOU ADVERTISE AS A SCHOOL. AND IF IT’S NOT FIESABLE TO HAVE THE SCHOOL OPEN IN THE SUMMER MONTHS- THEN DON’T OFFER CLASSES!!!!! I’m paying for a gym membership ($61) which is closed on the weekends, only open for 3 hrs on Fridays, offers no fitness classes, and the hours are 9-4 so opens after my 830 start and closes before I’m even finished classes at 530. And it’s a mandatory purchase. Absolutely horrendous. I tried to meet with them and ask for some compensation since I, and my entire class, are literally unable to access the gym and would like to purchase a membership we can actually use. Not possible.
    The buses only come once an hour so following classes you are always waiting an additional 50 mins.
    The cafeteria hours are 11-3!!! And the NOTL campus is literally in the middle of nowhere so it’s not like you can get food elsewhere. However, you will still get a parking ticket in an empty lot so lookout!!! They can stop all the other services but still fine you.
    I hate this school. The teachers in the summer months are also Unqualified. They really can’t find anyone who is willing to work during the summer — so again. Why offer this program?! I’m so sick of watching Ted Talks.
    I can continue. If you need to see a doctor – go into any other walk in clinic. This doctor working at NC, also works at Brock, is so unprofessional and she makes you wait 40min+ after your appointment. What us the point of scheduling appointments if you are unable to keep them?! 3 times now I’ve had to speak with the secretary telling her I have to leave for my next class. Our time is valuable too and they couldn’t care less. Unable to keep scheduled appointment times- always 40+ mins late. Extremely fast, careless and unhelpful. Barely let’s you get a word in. DO NOT GO TO HER FOR A PAPTEST. Literally took 30s, lots of blood, and very fast, hard motions. In and out. She doesn’t care about patients at all. And the fact that she’s the only one working at the college in the summer is very disturbing. Disappointed in Niagara College for hiring this doctor to care for the studends.
    Oh one last thing– library hours are 830-4 so again if you need help or want to rent anything you need to take time out of your class because it closes before I’m even finished. What kind of pathetic school is this?!

  • Niagara College is a business first, and a school second. Understand that more than anything.

    International students get a free pass at the expense of the hard work of other students.

    You may be partnered with someone and they do not have to do a single thing. Despite any concerns or complaints, or even if the work load is affecting your personal life, for example, lets say you are a single parent. It doesn’t matter.

    Understand that you will be standing on that stage at your convocation ceremony with that partner despite their complete non involvement.

    Yes, even if your professors assure you there is no way they will be passing or graduating; they are lying to you and could care less. Enjoy giving these students a free ride at the expense of yourself and your family; even when your child asks you, “Why dont you have time to play with me anymore?” all the while your partner is sitting at home watching tv, because the work is on you.

    I sincerely hope this does not happen to any one of you.

    Choose a different school.

  • hello, i joined Niagara college, Welland campus for mechanical engineering technology in January, 2017 intake. i like the college. its well layout. the course can be overwhelming but the teaching faculty is awesome. they are really helpful, friendly, everyone has huge experience in their subjects. they train students to be professional, so they are really concerned about your activities, absolutely no cheating. as a student your job is attend college, complete assignments and homework regularly, and as they say “you will be successful in this course”

  • I was a first year student at Niagara College for Electronics engineering technologist. I read the last review of the person taking the Nursing Course and couldn’t help but smile due to the similarities in my assessment of the Electronics course. Only one of the professors actually teaches. The other professors open a pdf or Power Point and read from it. Questions asked of these professors regarding the source material are frequently rebuffed and students are directed to read the text-book for answers. I dont get the sense that the professors are invested in my success. Suggestions to professors on how learning might be enhanced and made more easy are not considered because ‘College is supposed to be hard’.
    In Summary, am I learning? Yes. Is it because the college is ‘teaching’ me? No, It is because I want to learn and so I go home and watch You-Tube videos to better understand the concepts.
    I can easily foresee the day when college diplomas can be obtained by completing online courses (without professors) and only going to a campus to write exams. In fact, if I had the choice today, I feel I would learn more by not spending my time in the so-called ‘lectures’ and studying at home online with the internet and YouTube replacing the professors.

  • Everyone I have met in nursing is on med’s for anxiety/depression. Not an exaggeration. The core nursing professors are arrogant and rude (save for one who was very kind to me 1158). I am told I am stupid daily (not in those words) and received feed back on a test re: that I smoke. The course is still very heavy on self teaching. Also there are mistakes in demonstrations and slides they have posted, which causes confusion on tests. Also even with 80average you can be held back a term and forced to reapply. Not a good school!

  • This place is great. I studied in the palliative care post graduate program and after completing this program of one year, I took one short term course called GAS and got a 3 year work permit. The college helped me sort out my goals and they were always there to help and support my needs.

    I am now working for the regional public health department and I love living in the Niagara area.

  • So, started this nursing course with the assumption that it was doable. Everyone in my class came in with an average over 95%, so we are all smart. We average losing about 14 students a term, out of the 50 we came in with, because they have failed a course or more and have to drop to part time. We were told to expect to have as many hours of homework as we do class time, this term we have 14 hours of class and a total of 75 hours a week of expected work to get done, and we are told that if we don’t complete it all they can’t be sure that we are serious about this and can’t pass us. I have heard that other colleges are much easier and have less busy work so that you can focus on getting a broader understanding of the topics. I can’t think of anyone in the nursing program who is happy with it. It is very disorganized, we are tested on stuff we are not taught, told that we are supposed to have self directed learning… I thought I paid tuition so that I could be taught, apparently not. If I wanted to teach myself everything I would have just read the books and challenged the exams. Assignments and due dates are changed frequently, with very little notice. Some assignments are not even mentioned, you are just supposed to figure out that they exist and guess where the teachers posted them.
