Student Testimonials

Hear what students have to say about choosing to study with University Canada West.

“I chose UCW after researching universities that fitted my requirements. These included: location, small classes, teaching support and tuition fees. The small class sizes help for getting feedback over phone or email and which is a huge benefit. The diverse experience and background of the faculty make the studies really interesting and I am inspired by organisational behaviour and accounting professor”.

“I started my program online in October before my visa got approved. At first, I was a little nervous. I wondered how I would sit for hours in front of a computer. But I found it amazing! I have the privilege of enjoying some of the tools UCW provides to students and got to meet classmates from around the world. Meanwhile, I have received my visa and am now getting ready for on-campus classes.”
