Student Reviews

Needs some work but holds a lot of promise!
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

My program was relatively new, so there was a lot of trial and error where labs, seminars, and grading of assignments were concerned. I gained a lot of valuable knowledge that I hope to carry on in my Masters. Overall Brock is a good school but the assistance/ advice for students is lacking greatly. Medical Sciences will be a much improved program in a few years!

Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

As a university student, it is SO important to be able to study in a fast and efficient manner. I used to be very last minute with all my studying - often going over material only the night before, but this was NOT the best method. Changing that has absolutely improved my time management and overall grades!

It's challenging, but a very rewarding experience
