What students say
“I was told that I would never be able to graduate, never be able to have a family or anything like that, and I proved them all wrong. It’s a great community of teachers and students, and I’ve made friendships I will cherish my entire life. If I had one choice in life and I had unlimited money, I would spend my entire life as a student, just learning. Do it. It’s one of the greatest things you’ll ever do in your life.”
Applied Counselling Grad 2019
“Thirty years ago, when I was doing my Bachelor of Education, I noticed an older woman in class next to me and I thought, what is she doing in university at her age? Now I understand. Life is a journey and it is about learning. Give it a chance. Start with one course. I actually think you’ll like it.”
Student, Extended Education
“It was a long journey, working full-time and going to school, but it was worth it. The program was very informative, very rewarding both personally and professionally. I have been using the skills already. And I am more knowledgeable now about resources that I can offer.”

“U of M is a good facility. It was my best choice. The program was very professional. The instructors were knowledgeable and had practical experience. I am getting a Canadian certificate. Now I plan to resume my HR profession.”

Human Resource Management Grad 2019
“Going back to school, with the whole online component, you can work at your own pace. As a police officer and shift worker, I could come home at three in the morning and work on things. I think lifelong learning is very important. I’m not done yet.”
