Student Reviews

The Good and the bad
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

This school has a lack of dietary accommodations and is not very wheelchair accessible. On the other hand, Trent is very inclusive and encourages diversity in all aspects, and also has a lot of beneficial resources for students.

Good at prioritizing students and their needs. Workload is manageable

A beautiful beginning
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I haven’t done much at my university, I’ve only taken ESL classes to help me in transitioning to university and it has been a beautiful experience. I have met teachers who are genuinely interested in my success and they continue to challenge and encourage me for the little time I have spent here.
