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.

Terrible. Just Terrible. I went in for culinary management and decided that it was not the course for me. there was a drop out date where you can get all your money back. I reached out that day to drop out, however so many people were doing so that they did not have enough staff on to handle how many people were dropping out and did not have enough meetings available. I finally got into contact with a student success leader, and his earliest available day was 7 days after the deadline. he informed me that he could back date the drop out day for me-in which i took his word for it. fast forward over a month later, the fees were not gone on my account, and an email informed me that I had supposedly not dropped out on time. I had to send in proof of emails regarding the entire situation, that I did drop out on time and that their school did not have enough staff on to handle how many people dropped out. a staff member informed me that they would get back in touch with me after everything was sorted out. now, January, they inform me that I still owe fees on a kit that I returned. They said it was not good enough to resell. lets get this clear, the kit was horrendous. terrible equipment that looked as though it came from the dollar store. the only thing missing in the kit was plastic covers that go on some of the utensils-and even those were in the bag still. the uniform had been worn for a total of under 12 hours-yet it is unsellable. so here I am, stuck with nearly 1000 dollars left to pay a school for a terrible kit, from an education I did not receive. My opinion: do not go to this school. It will mess up your life and hassle you for months
