Concordia University - Montreal Reviews

87 reviews
Personally I love Concordia and think it is a great university, especially considering the price and the fact that I have had mostly phenomenal profs, however it is a city school and difficult to form relationships if you do not start out in rez.
It's a great environment for English speakers to be exposed to a French speaking culture in an international context not terribly far from home (on the same continent).
Concordia is radical, political, and very involved in the Montreal community. It is a more get-your-hands-dirty university than, for example, McGill.

It is not a particularly difficult university overall, but there are some excellent faculty that can help you access knowledge and opportunity on par with much larger institutions.

Concordia is the closest thing to a living hell. It is infested with horrible, rude and unprofessional professors across all departments. I have taken classes from the physics, chemistry, engineering and math department. I had one professor who only curved certain students grades. I had to repeat that course. Finals are EXTREMELY unfair compared to how learning is nonexistent. All learning is self learning/tutoring. The students could not give a single damn about anything going on in the classroom. The energy created by these careless students automatically creates a diseased environment. The school is populated with idiocy. Eventually, you will find smart peers that are destroyed by their inevitable high levels of stress. They will tend to ignore you. The library is an absolute joke and is almost impossible to study in with Concordia couples giggling at lame jokes. No matter what, avoid this tragedy of a university as absolutely nothing reaches even a mediocre level.
Communication with the university was a little bit of a struggle in the beginning when I was trying to figure out my situation of being far away and needing to talk with an advisor, and getting all of my papers cleared while not being in the province or country. The staff, when you finally get to talk with them, are very helpful and know who you need to be in contact with to get the information you need. The student life is great, as there is something for everyone. There is a shuttle bus between two campuses which can be slightly annoying when all of your classes are on the opposite campus you are resident too. Everyone is very welcoming and friendly and there are so many squirrels!Would recommend attending!
It depends so much on the area of study. Some people can get strait As barely studying and some people can barely get Bs when studying like crazy. Sciences are the hardest. The business program is amazing.
Canada is a very safe place. The only significant dangers involve drinking. You can walk home from a club black out drunk at 3 in the morning and probably nothing will happen to you.
Most people just go to class and go home. There isn't a lot of school pride. I have had some really good professors and some really bad ones. Resources for students are slim. The social life is amazing. There are a ton of clubs and bars near school.
For a student planning to go to medical school, the resources are very slim and I have no idea if I'm on the right track for applying to medical school.
The grey nuns residence is really nice but the food is terrible.
No one really goes to the games. A few people go to the football games but its usually too cold.
A student's experience at Concordia REALLY depends on the program. I am doing a specialization in biochemistry. Some teachers are super approachable and care about their students. Many are less willing to meet with and help students. Tests are VERY hard.
My program has great professors!
Campus life is very interesting.Eventhough sometime rough we learn more.The social temperature is always cool when you are not a difficult person.In the dorm,it is another thing,we must basically found ourselves in situation of mockery or is always in between the two.The housing process is always an embarassement ,it is not esay at all.On my side,i have no difficulty in creating friendship,i am sociable and have alot to share,so it is a an attraction for me.
Concordia is in the middle of everything bad so, the safety is really not at its best
i guess, like i said earlier i live at my parents house
