Personal recommendation
I know all the universities in Montreal quite well. I would say that Concordia distinguishes itself by it's multicultural aspect, most of the students are immigrants or children of immigrants. This diversity is also true concerning their age. This makes this university a really diverse one very representative of the reality of Montreal. I liked Montreal a lot. It's not the nicest city in the world but life there is really enjoyable. A proof of this ? I am back there, studying in HEC. Convinced ? Don't hesitate to contact me for questions.

There are interesting cities to see : Quebec city (very, very nice : try to visit it for the carnaval in February), Boston, New York, Toronto and Ottawa. Quebec is also a nice province : I advice you to go to the whales in Tadoussac and to visit Gapésie. Finally I will make a myth fall : the Niagara falls are not worth it, so sad but it's better to go to Las Vegas to see planet Hollywood and Casinos....

Courses cover a significant range of material

4.0/5
Overall
The courses are generally very good covering a lot of material and giving you a vast array of knowledge. However, I’ve had many difficulties for both terms getting into classes I’ve wanted, for example I was prohibited from joining a political science class if I wasn’t fully enrolled in the course. Some teachers aren’t as engaging as I would hope but all have extensive knowledge and are always open to questions. Student life is complicated with two separate campuses, living on the Loyola campus doesn’t make for a very good or cheap experience of Montreal student life. Services are generally average, excellent gym facilities though very limited sport programs. Health care services are very good considering they’re included in tuition, however the cafeteria could be largely improved with healthier food.

I do recomend to come to Montreal to study something because you can learn both languajes French and English here and you can choose the University depending on which languaje you want to make the course in. It is very easy here to find an apartment,and it is a very international city so you can meet people easily. The only problem is the weather, it is very cold. In general, it was very positive for me to come here.

Is an excellent option. Is not a close campus, that allows you to life in the city and go to the school. Is a University with a comitment with the society. They always organize discusion about the problems in the world. The Students can gather in diferent groups in order to share or help. Is amazing!!!. I found I could fullfil many interests balonging to diferent asociations

The weather is hard. In winter time the maximum is -7. Any way, there are many diferent ways to enjoy the snow. Don't buy boots with laces, you'll need to remove them frecuently. With zipper are better.

To renovate the buildings. Esthetically, the University requires imorovement and in return, this will certainly motivate students to study more as they will that they are in a modern environment.

Concordia is a grat University and is very well worth the trip for International students, particularly those interested in studying business or engineering. These areas are the University's areas of expertise. Further, Montreal is an exciting city full of diversity and is an important business center. The public transportation system is very developped and the residents are very helpful. These are all factors that make attending Concordia University beneficial. -Make use to the train or metro to get around town. Buy a montly bus pass. This will allow you to go all over town for a fixed rate. -Dress up during winter! It gets really cold. Don't forget to bring your skates and skis. There are plenty of winter activities to be performed. During the hot, humid summers, there are many public swimming pools throughout the city.

I personally think that the level isn t that high (ULB doesn t give good grades easily). It s better to be on concordia'sb campus rather than loyola
