Great institution with state-of-the-art facilities

A world class education with a wide variety of course offerings and excellent facilities. The one-on-one attention from professors and instructors is truly incredible.

Concordia University
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have heard countless stories about how great other peoples Concordia experiences were. Perhaps it is because I am studying "women studies" but both my class room experience, as well as any social situation has proven to be competitive and aggressive in am elitest manner. Not the warmest environment to study in for those struggling with severe social anxiety.

International experience in Concordia
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

The school never actually cared about me as a student from abroad. I found out at the end of the semester that the school offes international students the possibility of getting together with groups and parties, but as an international student i was never notified, nor other international people i met. No one offered me help with my courses or anything else in the matter.
