This school is such a joke..they don't even deserve a one star. The instructors don't know how to teach and each one teaches us different things..when it should be consistent. I got a zero for getting different instruction from one instructor and then being told another thing and getting penalized for it. Also, the tuition should NOT be this ridiculously high..18k for getting treated like trash by the professors. They expected us to know how to take xrays on the first day and then makes us feel bad for not knowing when it's literally the first time ever practicing..It's so unnecessary for screaming at the students..i'm just disgusted by the behaviour of the staff in this program..

Great program. I applied 4 years after graduating from a graphic design program. Application process was straightforward and asked for short video answering what my favourite movie was and why but I think they recently added a video submission, so get your reel together. Since graduating I've worked on sets in Toronto and done freelance ad content for a few different agencies.
