Fairfield University Graduate Reviews

5 reviews
The education is far superior to other schools, especially in the surrounding area. The size of the classes and enthusiasm from the professors really makes it welcoming and exciting to go to class. The financial aid office is pretty chaotic, unhelpful, and overall incompetent, but if you just take things as they come and ignore them as much as you possibly can without incurring any fees or extra expenses then you'll come to love it there.

Great Nursing school! Named #7 in the country this year! Flexible classes offered as well as Hybrid. Specializes in the therapy side of practice as a Psych APRN and not just medication management.
The teachers are amazing! The classmates are supportive, and the staff want's what is best for you. Administrative offices don't really pick up the phone often, but when they do, they are really helpful.
