  • has anyone considered starting a class action lawsuit?

  • 2 Weeks after i started college I read the same negative comments and i regret going to Roberson college. the first few months of college seemed like a JOKE. When I reached the actual accounting and payroll courses things got serious and i had to actually study and do work. After finishing practicum it took me Only one month to get a job ( I applied for lots and lots of jobs and i guess i was lucky). A couple years later I now make more than 50K / year. This college seems easy and make you pass thru the course. BUT U HAVE TO KNOW THE PURPOSE OF GOING TO ANY COLLEGE / UNIVERSITY IS THAT YOU GET A PIECE OF PAPER CALLED IT DIPLOMA OR DEGREE TO BE ELIGIBLE TO APPLY FOR A JOB. 60% OF THE LEARNING ACTUALLY HAPPENS ON THE JOB
    The only bad thing about this college is that i could not use this courses to attend Red river college or any university because their courses are not accepted. Other than that regardless of what they teach, u can apply for any related job and u can get the job. Believe it or not I make more money that people who graduated from Redriver. You may call it luck or skills
    My point is that yes this school may seem like a joke, May seem like they babysit you, But at the end you actually pass (if you do the work) and you can apply for jobs and actually get the jobs. Other colleges are difficult, lots of people fail the courses not because ur not smart because you can not answer that 20-50 questions that they have on the exam. (Real world is way more different than their fking exams)
    Hope this was helpful.

  • The Network Systems Administration course is a complete scam. The instructor has little to no IT knowledge or teaching ability. I have not learned a single thing from him over the past 6 months. With the IT courses specifically, they assign you a Testout module for A+, Windows Configuartion, CCNA, and 3 Server modules for you to complete and they believe its sufficient. The entire bundle for all the testout courses is $900, where as the price of the course is 15k. The instructor has stood up and taught once when the education director sat in during a class and the content he was covering was irrelevant. I have to go out of my way and gather extra resources outside of school with no guidance other than google to prepare for my certification exams. There is zero hands on, all the hardware was never taken care of and its all wrecked and inoperable. This program is purely to generate money and then leave the students to the wolves. I am extremely disappointed with this school overall and would not recommend.

  • I was looking for a school that offers hope in all aspects of existence. I tried on several of them around Edmonton and when pass by the Jasper St. saw Robertson College. Was accepted and rest of my stay became like a unforgettable past. The school community was vibrant from the students , instructors, and most the school admins wisdom ,kindness and sincere concerned was felt. More Great Things I wished on them.

  • it is the waste of time and money. One teacher for 6 or 7 courses. One teacher for 3 courses and so on. If you face a problem, student services do not care since they are already get paid. Not recognizable certificate or diploma, and total waste of time. They are claiming that they are professional but they are not.

  • I like the small classes and the teachers. I find it very beneficial and a lot easier to learn when you have a smaller class then if you don’t understand something the professors will take the extra time in a lesson to give you a bit better understanding.

  • I graduated from Robertson College with a diploma in Legal Assistant. I learned a lot in school and have found my instructor to be very knowledgeable and well prepared. The rest of the staff at the college is also very friendly and supportive. I enjoyed my conversations with the Education Manager and the Campus Director and they provided great advice when I needed. I was offers a job with the provincial government shortly after graduation. Going to Robertson College was the best decision!

  • I graduated from this college last year in the field of Accounting Payroll, my instructors were awesome and I had a cordial relationship with the management team. I got a nice placement for my practicum in the field of accounting.
    Most organizations are not ready to open their books for practicum students which is not the fault of the college in not getting students into their preferred choices
    I got a federal government job few months after graduation and most of what I was taught in class is helping me to settle down in my new job.

  • Well i completed there diploma course, but unfortunately it was pf no use going to university or technical school, I had to redo almost all those courses over. Pretty much I had to do it over and now I have a reconized diploma and credits for my future endeavors. For all the hype Robertson gave about be reconized in the business community, well it is funny most companies did not acknowledge there diploma, but reconized my university and work experience instead, and the capstone Robertson loves to boost was like carrying dead weight, no business or company was interested in seeing it.

    Well I learnt a expensive failure! Please look at a reconized institution not a shady private college like this.

  • I cannot recommend this college that teaches online American eduction in house. Especially in business management. The focus is American Small business and developement. They encourge this idea greatly. Do not expect much from a career search, nor been educated by the instructors, he/she cannot do very much without the slylabus from a publisher. Do not ask a question or you will be sitting there for hrs listening to a long winded lecture. Especially when the student has one edition, and they teach a edition of four prior, well it the student fault because his/his edition is current, and instuctor teaches from a old version. In management do not expect to learn any sort of software or apps, there is none.

    As far a Director or management they really do not care if you have experience, they will not hold back to tell you off.

  • This school is so welcoming and I felt comfortable when I started here. The teachers are great and at the end I was sent on a practicum where I had an opportunity to practice many of the skills I learned in school. At the end of the practicum I was offered a full time job. I’m so happy I went to robertson college.

  • I could never recommend Robertson College to someone in good conscience. The Edmonton campus is very obviously a for-profit agency with little concern for students. For almost the entire duration of the course we worked out of modules and the only time the instructor spoke to us was to review answers, which she read straight from the book. Unlike other colleges I have attended, the instructor did not teach the material, rather opting to have the textbook do the work.

    When it came time for our practicum, the facility we were placed in did not actually allow us to practice the majority of our skills learned in class. I posted a review on this website of the school, which was discovered by the campus director. She came to the class to ask students to come forward. I confronted the campus director regarding the issue. In anger, she offered me a full refund of tuition and gave me only two hours to decide.

    I decided to take the refund. Later that day (an hour after I went home), I called to ask that she forward me recognition of her previous statement in written form. She then told me, word for word: “if I have to lose my job over this, you will have to take down your review”.

    I was shocked at this behaviour. I said “I didn’t think it was necessary for anyone to lose their job over this”, to which she started panicking and telling me “forget I ever said that! I’m so sorry, you can have your refund!”. She asked that I “take her word” that she would provide the refund, in leui of proper documentation, to which I declined.

    Halfway through my practicum, I was removed and told I was being investigated. The investigation took a week. In the meantime, the college would not tell me why I was being investigated by the facility. When it came time for my meeting, they only gave vague details and said that staff members had issues with me. I had received nothing but positive feedback from my Robertson instructor who was supervising the practicum. My classmates were shocked.

    I was able to make up my lost practicum hours via my work hours; however, I believe that the investigation was handled improperly. I never received paperwork regarding the claims made.

    I finally have my certificate, and have applied to over 100 different health care aide positions in the city. I was promised that I would be able to work for Alberta Health Services with this certificate, but I have been sorely disappointed. I was once informed by an employer that they were hesitant to accept me due to the poor quality of Robertson College graduates; however, they liked my previous volunteer experience.

    Please avoid this school and choose another institution. This school does not provide quality education.

  • Have been to this school, looking at Logistics & Supply Chain Management in which is my desired field, and back ground experience,

    I had a choice to try Business Administration Management, in which I thought was the direction, but they fail to incite that it is Entrepreneur course, big difference.

    You have 4 days supposedly courtesy if not interested you can withdraw from it and continue to actual program, but beware if you withdraw from the courtesy in day 3 and 4 you have to pay for this course still, and will have to pay for you course of Logistics & Supply Chain Management. So much for courtesy!

    Now this school does not give you a list of you are going to taught, so only what you see in website, you have think it is Administration like other institutes, but it is not, other campuses will show the difference between main stream and Entrepreneur. I had to get out of Instructor exactly what the courses are, when I read it the outline, this was not for me.

    First problem is access to resources, you may have the book on loan, but no access to resources, you have to pay for this yourself.

    Second problem, instructors modify and add in every chapter of the powerpoint as he/she shows, so student have to spend time noting and fixing the information in class or at home. So this shows me preparation from instructors is incomplete and unprepared.

    You will do a Accounting Management Course, without learning any level of bookkeeping or Accounting principals. So have 5 weeks to figure out a University level book from your level, please take course in bookkeeping and principals of accounting first if you want to understand the Management level, and analyzing Corporate finances. This school assumes you have this knowledge.

    There is not Business law
    There is not Business writing writing skills.
    There is no Basic Business Math Courses

    You are pretty much on your own , and there is little feed back from instructors on submitted assignments, or exercises, so there again you have no clue how your progress is.

    So may I suggest stay with a public college or technical institute , this private college is not recognized by most school for credits.

    So you are spending money for nothing, as well it is over priced for what you get.

    Please note these course are the same as there online, and there courses are laid out differently from Winnipeg campus. Funny how too campus programs are not aligned ,
    reason different province, and its Business specialist that direct and dictate what to be taught.

  • Attending Robertson College was the worst mistake of my life. A year ago I enrolled in the Software and Database Development program. The education itself was excellent, the instructors were excellent, it was a fantastic learning environment. My Practicum, however, was a disaster. I was placed at an ACCOUNTING office that did not employ software developers, database administrators, or any I.T. discipline. At the end of the first week I addressed my concerns with the Career Services department; they told me to stick it out because I’d likely be hired afterwards. Not only was I not hired, I was told I had the wrong kind of education to work there, and, worst of all, on the last day, I was informed the company has NO REFERENCE POLICY. What was the freaking point of my Practicum? I acquired no relevant experience and no references. My own classroom instructor was shocked at how badly college screwed up. If that wasn’t bad enough, I was told my the Career Services department if I want to find a job to buy gifts for employers. Overall it was HORRIBLE experience, and one that cost me $14, 000!

  • Not sure what the other student is talking about. Everyone at Robertson College is extremely friendly, kind, and very willing to help with everything that you need to be successful. I had a great experience in school and found a job immediately after graduation. I would be honored to refer a friend or family member.

  • I choose to stay anonymous, I have been in the program at Robbertson College as Health Care Aid, I am very disappointed in the management and do not agree with how the students get treated, we were promised all kinds of choices which we never had, we were promised a pratticum venue close to our residence, that never happened, and the students gets treated like children, we are adults and paying for this. Please treat us like paying customers

  • The HCA program here at Robertson is awesome!

    Why? Both my wife and I took this same course at this school. My wife studied this course 2 years ahead of me and I saw how her confidence developed and her health-care-skills grew from this. Last November 2015, I got laid off from my work relating to the Oil and Gas Industry and I decided to take up the same.

    Now, after 4 months of lectures and lab skills, I am starting my clinical practice today. All the teachers (Kim Preston and Shiela Da Cruz) and Admin Staff (Ramona, Lauren, Christy, Sarah, Jessica, Sophia) are very approachable. They helped me from the very start of the enrollment process, getting the student loan approved quickly and getting on the class based on my preferred schedule and start date.

    The modules and classes are well paced and as students, it is expected of us to study hard in-class and after-class. There are no short-cuts to learning this.

    I highly recommend this course if you want to diversify to the health care industry.

  • Jess’s review is way off the mark. I have a BA and a teaching diploma from the U of A. And I taught school for several years. I am now making another career change and I am very satisfied with the education I am getting at Robertson.

    The Health Care Aid program follows the Alberta government curriculum and is very well organized. My instructor is also “just” an LPN with working knowledge in the field.
    And since I want to work in the field, that is who I want to learn from. My instructor is professional, organized and caring.

    The HCA program is intensive; so, yes, there are some days spent pouring over text books. But the text book is always supplemental to Robertson’s Learner’s Guide, an easy- to-follow instruction guide filled with pertinent articles, information and exercises.

    As we go through the material, the instructor always encourages us to ask questions and as a result we get into some greatly informative discussions. Also, included is a CPR-BLS in which you get practice with life support and first aid. Also there lab days in which we practice hands on skills.

    We have also had presentations from employers who have hired Robertson graduates in the past and who say they will hire more in the future.

    The Robertson HCA program is challenging, but the instructors and administration will work one on one with any student who struggles.

    I highly recommend the program. I don’t think you will find a better one.

  • This is the worst school I’ve ever been to. I previously studied at MacEwan University, and was looking to branch out in to Health Care. Robertson College has failed miserable in all aspects of teaching.
    The quality of education is quite low at Robertson. My instructor did not have a background in teaching, she was just an LPN with working knowledge of the field but no idea how to teach. A typical day at Robertson involves sitting in a room and reading out of a textbook for 4 hours. We have never once been instructed in the 5 months I’ve been here.
    For the price paid, ($6000), the education is substantially lower quality than any other institution, and run by an incredibly disorganized staff.
    If you value your time, you will go anywhere but here.
