Algonquin is one of the best colleges in ontario for virtually every type of student. Even if you’re coming from abroad, Algonquin has some exceptional opportunities for you.

As soon as you step foot on campus in Ottawa, success is within your grasp. This is a school that wants us all to succeed. I’m in the game development program, where I have a lot on my plate. But with the services available, including specialized software available on the computers on campus, study rooms, and thankfully high speed internet, it never feels overwhelming. It feels like I’m doing what I was meant to do.

The teachers have worked on games themselves and know about both the technical side of things as well as the business/industry side of things. Having the ability to develop connections is essential in this business, so im told.

This is a school that will give you the tools you need to succeed, but it’s up to you to use them.
