This whole day was a great experience. The different workshops were fun and engaging. It was nice to see how actual college classes would be, while also learning about teaching. It was nice to be with a group of people that have the same dreams as you. The staff was great and very fun.
The working experience is extremely important. What we study in theory, we have to be able to apply it in a working environment. Great Lakes College plays an exceptional role in assisting students in getting quality internships, should it be Oil and gas, mechanical or electrical engineering, in most cases, students received offers letter from the organization to join as a full time employee upon completion of the internship.
Great Lakes College should be nominated for college of the year. It’s really wonderful.
I’ve had a wonderful journey with Great Lakes. The lecturers have been very supportive, and I found the online discussion forums and tutorials very helpful.
I realized that when choosing a university, you want it to be a place you can both maximally grow and contribute into the lives of others. Some do that better at a big university (like Oxford) whilst others flourish in smaller schools (like Great Lakes College). Moving past the name and prestige associated with some schools, you want it to be a place that will mold you in the best possible way because – for those who have the opportunity – Great Lakes College is definitely the place you begin to shape seriously your outlook on life and the future.
I would like to thank my former teachers in Great Lakes College, Mr Andrew Lopez and Ms Lynne Hinderburg in providing me with a concrete mathematics and physics foundation on which I had built upon a career in engineering physics research.
The 3 1/2 years in Great Lakes College have brought me heart-warming memories. I had an interesting and eventful college life with my group of wonderful college mates. We traveled together and participated in various events or activities such as sports day, prom night and Outdoor Leadership Development Program. When it was time to study for our exams, we held group discussions and we studied hard together, especially during our final degree year.

Getting First Class Honours wasn’t easy, as I needed to perform above an average of 70% in my coursework and exams to qualify, and although the professors were very helpful, spoon-feeding was out of the question. We all had to be hardworking, independent learners in order to make use of the huge amount of resources and in the library.
