Why did you choose Concordia? When I first visited campus, I felt the students showed exactly what Concordia offers: a very diverse, open-minded, open-hearted space.

What drew you to Montreal? To have that New York City feel with a European dimension — for me, that was more than appealing.

SIR GEORGE WILLIAMS CAMPUS

The university’s steel-and-glass pavilions dominate the skyline of Quartier Concordia, in the heart of downtown Montreal. High-rises stand alongside century-old row houses and a historic student residence. The neighbourhood’s busy cafés, restaurants and boutiques are animated by the same creative energy of the city around it.

LUCAS REGAZZI

Toronto, Ontario Photography and Art History

How did you decide to pursue university-level studies in photography? My interest goes back to a blog that I started in high school. It was a springboard that got me thinking about how images exist and operate in our world.

What’s been the value of adding a minor in Art History to your degree? It’s opened me up to this whole world of ideas and conversations I wouldn’t have had access to otherwise.

Why is business the right program for you?

I love creating new relationships and trying to make a positive impact on the world. You can make smart choices about the environment and society.

VICTOR YUAN

Victoria, British Columbia Cell and Molecular Biology

You’ve spent a lot of time learning about microalgae as a potential source of biofuel. Where does your motivation come from? It feels like a puzzle. It’s satisfying to think about how the gene is supposed to affect the cell — then test it and find out.

You’re aiming for a career in synthetic biology research. How prepared do you feel? Because I got to do research as an undergrad, I’m really comfortable with what I’m doing and I’m confident in my knowledge.

Anthropology

Why did Concordia make sense for you?

I was already aware of the Aboriginal Student Resource Centre, so

I knew I would have support on campus. I’d heard that people are very welcoming and social and I’ve found that to be true.

How important has it been for you to connect with other Indigenous students on campus? It helps me incredibly. I can just stop by for a snack, talk to people, use the resources there, and study there. I’m connected to a bunch of people now that I never would have met otherwise, because we’re all in different programs.

Markham, Ontario Communication Studies

You were new to rugby when you started at Concordia — and now you’re playing for Canada. How did you find yourself joining the Stingers? I chose Concordia for my academic program, and then I contacted the head coach to say that I’d like to play.

What’s it been like to balance school with playing rugby at an international level? Concordia offers a very supportive environment — the athletics staff are so helpful — and that has really helped to diminish the stress athletes and students face.

• Admission requirements for some programs are exactly the same (for example, all John Molson School of Business degree programs and all Aerospace Engineering options). Don’t waste a choice on a program that has the exact same requirements as a choice you already specified. Consider including a less- competitive program among your choices, to maximize your chances of admission to the university!

c. PROOF OF CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP OR PERMANENT RESIDENCY, if applicable.

d. PROGRAM-SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS, if applicable (i.e. letter of intent, portfolio, etc.) These additional documents may need to be submitted directly to the academic department. Check concordia.ca/ugrad-other-req.

You may upload documents to your file even after submitting your application.

DEFINITIONS

Your academic program is the type of degree you’ll be doing (Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Commerce, etc.).

Your academic plan is the subject that you’ll be studying (Biology, Finance, etc.).

Elective courses, depending on your program, allow you to explore interests outside of your required courses.

ACADEMIC PLAN TYPES

• A major requires you to take enough courses so that you’ll end up with a general overview of the field, but not so many that you won’t still have extensive room for exploration outside the field.

• A specialization provides a more in-depth study of your field while leaving you room to take other courses.

Honours is a highly concentrated program, ideal for students planning to continue on to graduate studies. Not every program has direct admission to honours. (In these cases, students will need to apply for admission to the honours program during their first year at Concordia.)

• An option refers to plans within engineering or computer science.

• A minor gives you a basic introduction to a field. You can add a minor to complement a major, specialization or honours, but you can’t complete a minor by itself. Minors are optional. (Interested in a minor? Apply after you’ve started your studies.)
