Brandman University Reviews
Brandman's the best! I haven't gone to a great school since elementary. All the coursework for the eight weeks is already lined up, so you can get ahead if you wish. Everyone, from professors to academic advisors, are so nice and communicative. Brandman staff come to YOU and help work with you on a yearly schedule. They always answer any questions you have through phone or email. Getting good grades is not difficult. Assignments are clearly stated and are enjoyable. I have learned so much going through their teaching program from diversity to different types of schools to teach at to students with disabilities and how to work with them (I am not a special education major either), so it's all good stuff. Teachers give great feedback, yet are not strict on grading. Many often give you extra chances to turn things in or to redo assignments. Their hiring process, I can tell, is excellent. They choose only the best-of-the-best. Their priority really is their students and their education.
Honestly, I love Brandman University. I have had a great experience with them every step of the way, and they've made getting my degree (online) while being active duty military much more achievable. The counselors have always taken the time to help me create education plans, and the instructors are always understanding when life inevitably comes up. Additionally, I found one of the nicest things is that books generally aren't nearly as expensive as many other schools. I would say the only thing I wish I could change is that some of the classes I need for my degree aren't offered that many times per year, and that makes things a little bit less flexible. But still, my experience with Brandman has been overwhelmingly positive, and I'm glad to be a student.
Everything! It is a great school. I love the teachers and the advisors, staff that really take dedication in the students life.
