Student Reviews

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have been able to gain invaluable insight into so many facets of everyday life through my English degree. Picking from electives that challenged my views about the world has changed my life forever. I highly recommend studying English at Ryerson University for anyone with a passion for deep thinking, reading, writing, and challenging the status quo.

OCAD University Review
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am currently studying at OCAD University in Digital Futures Program. It is an overall decent art school and my experience is nice here. The atmosphere is very artistic however the school lacks a sense of welcoming community.
