Hear From Former Students on Why They Enjoyed Attending Oxford College

You don’t have to take our word for it! Read what our graduates have to say about their experience attending Oxford College.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I hope this email finds you well. It hasn’t been a week since we finished school and here I am writing to you with good news. I received my offer of employment from Voyant Beauty yesterday for the Jr. Compounder position at their Rexdale plant. I will have my orientation and start training on Oct. 11.

I cannot thank you enough for all the support that you have provided during our time at the college. I walked in to the interview confidently because I knew what to expect, all those things you have mentioned in class came in very handy. When I was asked what my long term plans are and I responded that I would like to be a part of a company where I can grow professionally (stay until retirement, if possible) and would be recognized (not retire in the same position, may be promoted at least?) the HR Manager answered that it was “impressive”. You also took the time to teach me to do my research of the company I am applying for, even educating me as to what it means to be a CDMO. I believe these are some things that helped me land this job, along with the training we did at the lab.

Most companies see that I do not have any manufacturing experience but when I got to explain to the interview panel the kind of training we received at Oxford College and the plant set up plus the equipment we have there, they were surprised. More companies should hear about the lab training and plant set up we have at the College because it blows their minds how much experience we can get while in school.

Thank you once again for the knowledge and wisdom you wholeheartedly shared with us, thank you for training us to be good manufacturing technologists and most of all, thank you for the samosas. I promise to keep in touch and should any opportunities become available at Voyant Beauty I will let you know so your students can apply.

Good health to you always. All the best to you, the PMT Department and Oxford College!

I miss you and your unique teaching. I have attended many classes so far, but the character; Your knowledge and compassion are unparalleled. In your classes I learned the lessons of life. It is a great honor for me to be your student. Whenever I go through the memories; I feel a special calm and pleasantness. I am now a Board member of AS Medical sciences Journal and they have sent me some articles for scientific approval before publication.

Joining Oxford College was one of the greatest decisions I have made and I feel so fortunate to be one of your students. I’m really enjoying your virtual classes, you are an amazing and inspiring mentor. The style and method of your teaching tells me that I’m on the right track towards my potential career.

My experience with the online classes is positive. It’s a new experience indeed, but I adjusted quickly. Instructor Debra Nurse is an amazing, competent, organized and professional teacher. I’m blessed to have her as my tutor. My class experience is overall satisfying and rewarding. My favourite are the individual take home assignments.

Johanna (Jenna), PSW Student

I got very awesome instructor Justin Jackson and I knew him before since he taught in Fleming College. I took his digital imagery class. The video game designer program is very fun and interesting.

Covid has definitely been a struggle, and even though I’ve only been with Oxford for almost 2 weeks, my instructor is AMAZING! And it’s nice to chat throughout the class with my fellow classmates. Everyone is very nice, and we always have great conversations amongst ourselves.

Ashley, AESO Student

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

It has been so long since I have been in this type of environment (school/group learning) and it’s nice that the first module isn’t very heavy in regard to tests and papers etc. I am thoroughly enjoying the Enriched Academy content and also the Power learning content. As mentioned not having this in my life for what feels like so long, I didn’t realize that I needed these reminders in some cases but also learning something about myself for the first time, that has been my favorite part so far.

Carling, MLAT Student

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I have loved every minute of Oxford. The experience, the meeting new people, the learning! I am so happy and excited about all of it.

Christina, AESO Student

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Just to start, EVERYTHING about the experience with Oxford has been going very well so far! If I had to choose what my favorite experience to this point has been, I would say Joanna Zaleschook. Joanna has been such a wonderful instructor. She is very patient and inclusive. She is articulate and engaged. She has helped connect a large group of students who otherwise feel very disconnected. I am so thankful for her being my first instructor while starting this new chapter in my life. Thank you for taking the time to ask Heather. You are correct about focusing on the positive right now!

Jen, MLAT Student

It’s only been a short few weeks however I am loving that I get to do this in the comfort of my home. It’s relaxed and my anxiety isn’t through the roof also I have classmates from near and far. Learning lots from all of them and my teacher is amazing. I love the online learning.

I am really thankful and proud that you were able to help us finish our course (PMT) in this hard situation, could you please thank MR.F.Anjum from me and morning shift, he was a great teacher, he helped us a lot to get through the course and getting a job and I’m sure that most of the students understand the lessons perfectly and he was a really wise guy and he taught us a lot of stuff that would help us in life and we will always remember him and the things he taught us.

I am so excited to inform you that I have passed my MLPAO examination successfully. I got a job starting today at Public Health Ontario. In this journey (MLT/A), I would like to take this opportunity to thank Almighty for his blessings. Along with this, my sincere appreciation to Karen Shoniker, Karin and other office staff members who helped me to sort out all the documentations, class schedules (on time, at this unprecedented situation!!) and legal procedures without any delay. I sincerely appreciate Mr. Badar who helped me for a smooth transition into college life after a long break. Mr Abdul was a good clinical instructor who had much valued experience in helping the students at the time of practicals. Mr Absar for preparing us exceptionally well for this exam. His advice and recommended strategies helped me in achieving my goal. I am very glad that I was able to get him as my instructor. I wouldn’t have succeeded without his support and guidance. I hope I haven’t missed anyone!! Once again my sincere thanks to my entire Oxford team. Best Regards

I’m a recent graduate from Oxford’s Peterborough campus. I had a great experience there. The staff is friendly and caring. They helped and encouraged me to reach my goal of graduating. If you are looking to go to college but don’t have the time for changing schedules, Oxford College would be a great place for you.

Maria McMullen-Monette, CDSW Program Graduate

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I want to appreciate all the instructors in my program, they are all wonderful and professional. I understand and respect different instructors have different ways to teach, especially, Shawket Zaman, he is a really nice instructor who always reminds us to learn the concept and not only focus on the exams. He does his best to teach all that he knows. Thank you for all of your efforts, I can feel it.

Monique Li – Intra Oral Dental Assistant Student

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

When I first started clinic I was very confident about learning because I knew from the start that my Instructor was very well experienced, she was very serious about making sure we learn exactly what’s right. Miss Marline always made sure we did everything neatly and in the right order. I learned many things in a very professional way. I learned how to talk to clients and make sure they leave happy. I’m very happy with my clinic days, they are the best memories. Thank you to my instructor for helping us when we thought we couldn’t do anything.

Noor Al, Oxford Graduate

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I am a recent graduate from the IODA program. During my time in my program, I have acquired the skills that have improved my confidence and that have prepared me for placement and the work force.

The instructors are efficient and teach in a variety of techniques. My instructor for Intra Oral Assisting, Sandra Mann, was an incredible instructor and she always had confidence in her ability to teach us the required skills, while making us feel more confident with our own skills.

This experience has been the best I could have ever hoped for, and I will be encouraging others to join this amazing program.

Cynthia Heurkens, IODA Program

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Hi Karin, Thank you so much for having us today! We enjoyed speaking with your students and sharing about our company. They are wonderful students who had great questions. I loved their passion and interest in exploring and learning more about the profession and our company. During the presentation, we shared the opportunity for the students to win a free treatment. Should the students be interested in learning about our clinics in Post-Covid, the changes and results, we are happy to host our Massage Therapy profession and Covid-19 presentation. Thank you, again, for arranging the virtual presentation.

We had a smooth transition from in class to online and we enjoy our online classes on Zoom. Our teacher, Priya, is very responsible, passionate and enthusiastic in teaching. She sends emails to remind us to submit our discussions and assignments on time according to the CPA schedule.

Priya always makes us comfortable to ask any questions about the subject and we really feel her eagerness and willingness to answer all our inquiries.

Maria Theresa Ioannou, APA Program

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Currently I’m learning Essential skills which is taught by Masoumeh. This course is so interesting for me especially the different methods of learning that we use such as discussions, watching videos, writing assignments are really helpful.

Masoumeh is professional and knowledgeable. I am happy with my teacher and my classmates. I appreciate everything that she has been doing for us during our classes. Thank you very much.

Lyubov Kychak, Massage Therapy Student

Hi there, I just wanted to take a second before our exam and thank you. Thank you for being such a wonderful teacher. I feel like you have taught me so much. I really appreciate your teaching style and I cannot thank you enough. We have spent quite a bit of time together and I’ve truly enjoyed it. Thank you for everything and all the best in the future.

We have successfully completed all the modules of MLAT with Mr. Badruddin Umar on 8th of June, 2020. It is important for our class/peers to inform you how we were with Mr Badar. For all of us it was an unforgettable academic period we trained best from him that shined our skill and made us successful.

Mr Badar acted as a highly skilled professional teacher. It is worth mention-able of his organised scheduling, transmitting, delivering and implementing educational modules. We had all logistics of teaching materials from him in Google class enriched with videos and links. He was well in presenting slides maintaining scientific standard. We could question him during lectures eliciting the best of his knowledge and experience for us.

You may please convey our best feeling and best wishes to him so that can carry on well at Oxford Scarborough Campus in coming days. We appreciate the Manager, Karin Cech for presenting us Mr. Badar a wonderful resourceful ideal teacher at the beginning of our session. Thank you.

Yes as you can see I am a victim to a quarantine hair cut done by my wonderful 11 year old daughter. But that does not stop me from ensuring all is working well at the Oxford Peterborough Campus! Setting up exams, starting new students, working out schedules for all. This is really unchartered territory but know not only are the students and instructors working hard so is the Admin team.

I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable online class. If you are not a student, know we are here and can support you on a journey for a career change, or enhance your existing skill set. We have classes starting often give us a call.

Heather Clark, Peterborough Campus Manager

I attended college for the IODA program, and finished in September, 2014. I recently started my placement with the Peterborough Dental Health Unit. During my time at college I had a rough time managing home issues and school and didn’t know if I was going to be able to finish. I want to thank my instructor, Sandra Mann, who gave me confidence and pushed me to do what I thought I couldn’t do. The staff was amazing and helped me through so much more than just getting my education, like how to keep a positive upbeat attitude while I was in school. I started my placement September 15 and I love it!

I felt I was very well prepared and super excited. I fit right in working with tools and patients and it felt so natural, all thanks to Sandra. We were not always an easy class, and I wasn’t always an easy student but Sandra was there every day with a smile on her face ready to teach us. It is thanks to her that I have become the person/Dental Assistant that I am today.

Anyssa White, IODA Program

I would like to thank Oxford College for giving us the opportunity to do the online class. I am a student of the PMT morning batch. I am enjoying the class but missing our college badly. Hope we can get back to our college soon.

Salma is an inspiring instructor. She conveys her depth of knowledge in a creative and engaging way to motivate her students. She also provides understanding, meaningful content, great ideas and effective strategies that are essential in our everyday lives.

Video conference offered as part of the course enables conversational interaction with other students and the instructor when discussing each other’s work and share feedback interactively. The online teaching is beneficial and highly effective.

Chandroutie, MLAT Program

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Mr. Badar is an absolutely amazing teacher, his patience, understanding and devotion to the students made it much more easy for us to adjust to the online learning. He was there for us no matter what time of the day and he made sure we understood all that we were learning. He had a exceptional way of explaining the material and if we had questions he answered them one by one, even though at one point we were about 54 or 56 students in his class, he made all of us feel welcome and included and it felt like he really enjoyed teaching. I remember one time he wasn’t feeling well, but he stayed on Zoom until we all understood what we had to do, and then the next day asked to help anyone that had trouble. He is absolutely one of the BEST teachers out there, and Oxford College and the students that get him as an instructor are very lucky to have him. We fninshed with his modules about a week ago but we miss him so much and we talk about him every day.

When I first came here in Canada, I was not entirely sure if what life I can be after finishing my nanny/caregiver contract. Fast forward I got my permanent residency and decided to go back for school and I had lots of choices in my mind, but one day while browsing my Facebook Oxford College of Burlington branch pop up and I inquire what’s the available courses that I can take related to my nursing profession. I came to enroll in a Paramedic program but I give up on it due to my health issues and I end up getting a Community Service Worker course. Having the right decision because I had an amazing, approachable and friendly instructor Sir Thomas Ryan. I like the fact that the class is small and it’s a module base, my colleagues are friendly and nice. The staffs are approachable, very flexible in helping student’s needs. Oxford College Burlington Branch offers students a wide choice of social activities, environment here is socialable and a course suits that best for your knowledge and skills that you can share in the future job. A school that is pretty endorsable and good…

Determination… Motivation… Faith and Self Care is my secret to achieve and finish my course.

I finished my last module & think it was an amazing year I’ve spent at Oxford which helped me get necessary qualifications for my future career. I appreciate everything that you guys have done for us! Best regards,

I wanted to express my gratitude for the opportunity to attend class online. I’m enjoying the format and find the lessons to be clear. The ability to communicate with other students on the forum and have interactions is beneficial to my learning. I think Zoom is very user friendly and feel just as engaged.

The quality of education is just as well then as being in class. I appreciate the college giving us the support online as to not interrupt our education. Thank you.

I just want to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the IODA program. I believe that my instructor Sandra Mann did a fantastic job, and now that I have completed my placement hours I can honestly say that she left no stone unturned when it came to teaching and making her students aware of all things that take place in a dental office.

I went into my placement confident and left it feeling even more certain that I had made the right choice, and that I was fully prepared for the profession I had chosen.

Sandra displayed knowledge, confidence and patience and I feel that I have done as well as I have because she was such a great teacher and influence. So thanks Sandra for being the footing to obtaining my career goals.

Angela Mcnaney, IODA Program

I am enjoying the online courses as well as my teacher Salma, she is a great teacher and very kind and caring. Although I do wish for this pandemic to be over, I am enjoying going to class in the comfort of my own home.

Jessica Agapito

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

During this pandemic crisis wherein everybody is quarantined at home, an online class is the best way to continue schooling. I say the best in a way that we can still finish our schooling in time; we can multitask while listening to the teacher and to our classmates, and I guess we have better student-teacher interaction and yes, perfect attendance!!!


★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I would like to follow up and simply thank you for your time with Peter and I last Friday. My son speaks highly of the staff and his experience with your time and I can appreciate why. I thank you for the great effort and time to talk to me also and ensuring that all your students are in capable and caring hands.

We have highly recommended your program to family friends. We expect they will choose Oxford in Toronto based on our first-hand experience. Wishing all the best for you and your colleges in 2020.

I appreciate the college efforts to provide us with the opportunity to continue our education, I’m having a great time attending online classes so far.

I’m gaining a lot of knowledge through the course. Ms. Salma makes sure the class is both interesting & fun, she always takes time to answer questions and helps us with what we need.

Instructors are knowledgeable and kind. They teach skills as well as professional ethics which are very important for getting ready for the future’s jobs.

Hello Jerin, I am writing this mail to thank you for everything you have done for me. Jerin I really appreciate the hard work you do for students. The way you motivate students to accomplish their dreams and to have a good stable career is really a great job from your side. I personally feel that you are not only a good mentor but a trustworthy friend as well who has all the solutions to problems of students. Your guidance is really very valuable for me in both personal and professional aspects of life. I am very lucky to have you as my mentor all the time available for me to guide me in any manner you can. I truly believe finding your site has been the turning point for me. Thank you for investing your time in me and guiding me in my career without you it wasn’t possible for me to restart my career.


★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I am really liking [Salma’s] online classes. It is really fun. You are sitting in the comfort of your own house and still able to attend classes, it is really amazing. While attending classes, you can do house chores, eat and drink. The college made a good decision to shut it down in this chaos. [As a student], I really appreciate it and Salma [is] a great teacher, I really like the way [she teaches us] and [her] teaching style.

I had a good experience with Sir Badar how he taught us its really appreciated, never said “no” always said you can ask me any time I’m available 24 hours. I wanted to appreciate and thank our teacher, Sir Badar for being such an amazing teacher and for all the great lessons. I feel so fortunate to have been placed in his class. He has amazed and inspired me daily and for that, I am thankful because he is truly a wonderful teacher.

As a teacher, he gave me the tools I need to face my future and he is professional and ready to help whenever needed. Wish him all the best for his future classes. I really wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart as you have been so co-operative throughout the module. You have always taken time out to explain everything in detail, answer all our questions and have always been there whenever we needed it. May you continue to spread this light of knowledge. Thanks again and wish you all the best.

I just want to thank you and Dr. Raina because she really makes a difference in our learning. At the beginning I found my course difficult and I was thinking of drop out, but when Miss Rania started teaching us I started to understand everything from her. She listens to us and explains every single word. She addresses all of our concerns, she is an amazing instructor.

She makes me like the course so thank you and because of Miss Rania I love the class even online so I referred 3 new friends of mine to do the same course!! So thank you and her again!

Hello Sir, I am writing this email to say thank you very much and indicate my sadness that our term has come to an end. As you know it was my first experience in medical subjects and I am really glad to met you and it was my pleasure to be your student. You encouraged me to be decisive on my decision for continuing my education to be a dentist one day with your kind and supportive manner.

Leaving you and your class is an unhappiness part of my education in Oxford College but instead I am so happy to have found such a nice instructor in my life. At the end I would like to thank you for all of the things that you have taught me. I really appreciate your supporting behavior. Thanks and regards.

I wanted to give a virtual high five to an Intra Oral Dental Assisting student Jordyn, who finished her placement on Mar 6, 2020 just before the Provincial State of Emergency! We just received word that her placement location has hired her on as we transition into stage 2 of the provincial reopen plan! We are so excited for Jordyn and proud of all she has accomplished! Here is to her and the bright future she has ahead of her! Stay safe!

We were students in the IODA program for 2013-2014 year. Thanks to the program and our amazing instructor, Sandra Mann, we felt greatly confident entering our placement. We feel that because of the time and attention we received from our instructor we were able to master our skills and obtain the required confidence to deal with the people we will encounter in our future employment.

Thanks to Sandra we were able to form great friendships with fellow classmates and professional relationships with all our instructors, who even after our graduation still check in on us, as well as inform us of any career opportunities they hear about.

Doing online class, for now, is a good alternative to continuing classes. In our MLAT evening class, our instructor Salma Siddiqui is doing her best to keep us updated overall, she’s punctual on-time meetings and clearly explaining her class topic before we start, also she is very resourceful in a way that she will find a way and make sure that all of her students get the latest information on our topic. Discussing her lesson well, using share screening and PowerPoints online. Our class instructor is handling her class nicely, we are still learning something, sharing thoughts and experience and discussing great and interesting topics like what we did in class. Keep it up Salma! You are doing a great job.

Joan Morante, MLAT Program

Hi Mr. Badar, Thank you so much for your kindness and for being our professor during this period of time. I wanted to explain why I am usually silent during the class and not so active, it is because my son’s are around, I just wanted to prevent any kind of disturbance while you were teaching. But I was listening actively and I have to tell you that it was one of the most beautiful moments in my education period of time. Finally, I would like to say thank you and express my gratitude for all you have done for us. Moreover, I believe that you are so talented, thoughtful, and generous and I appreciate the extra help you gave us and your great behavior.

Throughout my time at Oxford College, I’ve experienced many memorable moments. What made this experience unlike any others, were the teachers. They were very experienced, caring and displayed dedication throughout my journey to help me achieve my educational goals.

The environment was very welcoming and secure, and the community amicable. It’s also thanks to these many experiences at Oxford College that I obtained a job as a (medical office assistant) before my graduation. I’m very thankful for my teacher Mrs. Salma for helping, encouraging and guiding me from the beginning to the end of this journey.

Being an International Medical Graduate, Clinical research has been my focus of career choice ever since I came to Canada. I checked out programs from different colleges and then opted for the PG diploma program at Oxford because I liked their modules better than elsewhere. It covers all the essentials and skills required as a clinical research professional in depth. Also, this course comes with a 14 week placement assisted by college. The career counsellor really went above and beyond for getting everyone placed.

During my internship with LMC Manna Research, Toronto, I found my theory basics in clinical research were solid because of the training given in class by Dr. Kamyar Motavaze. Also, this placement helped me get my foot in the industry as I have been offered a job at the end of my internship as a Clinical Trial Assistant.

Overall, I am so grateful that I chose this program.

First of all, I thank you for arranging online zoom meeting to see my placement site and talking to my supervisor about my placement and also giving me the opportunity to discuss so many things with you, it was really a useful session and I really appreciate your quick responses to all my emails and questions especially during my placement.

So far I am very happy with my student placement, they have provided us with all necessary personal protective equipment and it is a good experience to work in a safe place where everyone is following all safety guidelines to be safe and help others stay safe during this COVID-19.

I am enrolled in the Community Service Worker Diploma Program. I started in Mid February a few weeks before COVID 19. I have been enjoying my online classes with tutor Thomas Ryan. He is the go-to person for all the questions that you may have on the program. Teaching methods that have been used are whiteboard, Youtube Videos, Powerpoint slides, and breakout sessions for small group discussions on projects and assignments. In May, we had an online job fair that went very well. The advantages of online classes are convenience, flexibility, and the ability to be able to access the class from anywhere. The tutor is very knowledgeable in the subject matters. He Keeps the class interested!

Marjorie Claire

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

It was good!

Different from being in class only because we could not do some of the things, we would normally do in class but overall, it was a good experience with your awesome teaching of course!

Sarath Khath

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The best part about online classes is the flexibility and convenience from which one can be productive from the comfort of their home. Keep a watch on families without losing any time in the learning process. We also happen to save, financially, by not having to commute.

Saman Zehra

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I joined the program online at the end of May – so have not experienced it any other way yet. I have quite enjoyed the online experience. The stable timing of its hours is fabulous, and I frankly can get spoiled by getting quick things done around the house during break time. I would say that it is a slower time to get to know people, but that is coming along too. In a way, it has allowed us to learn technology perhaps sooner than when we would have otherwise through online groups, breakout rooms, presentations etc. I do think there are positives and negatives for online, in the same way as there would be in class, but it is a nice alternative for when online is needed.

Being back at placement is great!

I am currently with Community Living Burlington. CLB has shut down its day programs due to Covid-19. In place of the day programs offered on-site, they have started a pilot project of virtual programming over zoom to increase the social interaction and maintain physical/intellectual activity, while encouraging a safe environment. I am currently working in virtual programming 4 days a week. In my time in virtual programming, I greet everyone to each 45-minute program, introduce the host, take attendance and monitor the screens for appropriate language and behaviour and help with any technical issues. I have filled in as the dedicated host for several programs such as the art class and sign language, as well as creating my own programs “Summer Mocktails and Games – with James”, and a science hour where we explore science and do weekly science experiments. Other programs offered are things like, yoga, music lessons, around the world ( learning about different places where we have all lived – rotating hosts), Zumba, and many more. Evenings I spend doing administrative duties and research. On Wednesdays, I work in the food distribution for residential homes organizing and delivering food to the 28 residential homes that are supported through CLB.

I have also just started a student placement mentorship group. This was suggested to me by my supervisor,  offering help and encouragement to students that will be starting a placement with CLB and are having difficulties with online programming, making connections in this format, and also helping with the creative process in starting their own programs in virtual programming.

In general, I was nervous about doing a placement in this format myself. I have found that the experience I am gaining is extremely valuable. It is a lot of work but is very rewarding and I have made some very great connections in the field, and am being encouraged and guided by some very amazing mentors.

At Oxford College, our students have the opportunity to develop their skills and education through both theoretical and practical experiences guided by certified professionals. Our students are provided with a study strategy that allows them to engage in their learning with instructors that support the individual development of our students without sacrificing their personal life. One example is that we provide an end to end journey including sharpening their interview skills and resumes so that our students are successful from the moment they complete the program. Students are encouraged to interact with their instructors through labs that provide supervised practical experience from a hands-on professional that will foster their in-class learning and prepare them for real career opportunities. As a student, you will also have the opportunity to network with other professionals who share their knowledge and experiences that will guide you on a successful career path. Not to mention our campus provides academic counselling throughout the journey to assist students as individuals with both personal and career goals and evaluating their progress utilizing resources from Oxford College. I am proud of my students who are enrolled in Oxford College and believe that we offer the best experience for students to succeed in their career goals.

The course is quite challenging because there is a lot of material covered in a short amount of time. However, the instructor is easy to listen to and follow along with. Patty helps us with everything when we don’t understand something about the course, she helps us by explaining everything in detail. Also, I like how our instructor prepares us for the exams, she does not move to the next course material until we have a good understanding of the course. I enjoy this course; the professor and my classmates are very friendly and helpful.

My tip for this course is to ALWAYS ask questions when you don’t understand something, don’t be afraid to ask!

I have been enrolled in the Oxford College Video Game Design Course for over a year. The course has been diverse. I have learned many things about both art and programming. I’ve learned about animation, how to use various art and video game engine programs, how to design levels, and create storyboards. My teacher has been very patient with me even when I have had difficulty understanding things and keeping up. He has always been willing to spend as much time with me as I needed to fix my problems, and accomplish my goals. I remain hopeful that this course will help me find a job in the future that I will enjoy.

Returning to practical classes on campus has been a great experience. As an instructor, I feel safe with my practical instruction on campus. This is definitely where we need to be with the Massage Therapy practical components of the program.

My return to the Oxford college campus following the closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic has been a great experience. Oxford College has done everything possible to ensure the safety of their students, staff and student massage therapy clients with no interruption to the student learning experience or environment.

We have successfully completed all the modules of MLAT with Mr. Badruddin Umar on 8th of June, 2020. For all of us, it was an unforgettable academic period. Mr. Badar acted as a highly skilled professional teacher. It is worth mention-able of his organized scheduling, transmitting, delivering and implementing educational modules. We had all logistics of teaching materials from him in google class enriched with videos and links. He was well in presenting slides maintaining scientific standards. We could question him during lectures eliciting the best of his knowledge and experience for us. We appreciate the Manager, Karin Cech for presenting us Mr. Badar, a wonderful resourceful ideal teacher at the beginning of our session at Oxford. Thank you.

Our world is in ever-changing times, and people react differently to change.  I feel that “we are all in this together”, and when necessary, we need to try and pay it forward. The reason for this letter is just that, commending one of your professors that cares, that makes sure that we all stay together. I am currently a student at the Scarborough campus Pharmaceutical technology program, Professor Feroz Anjum. Previous to this, I was an Executive Chef for extremely high volume restaurants, hotels, retirement, etc., so I am no stranger to stress. Feroz Anjum has helped keep us all together and should be recognized for that. He has been a great coach, mentor, and is an asset to the college.

After a LONG wait, our class is finally back in the dental clinic! The students were ready last Friday in their crisp new scrubs, and enthusiastic attitudes, eager to get started with some hands-on learning.  Even though we covered a lot of material online over the past few months, nothing compares to being able to learn things in person and interact with each other face to face, or should I say mask to mask.

We are familiarizing ourselves with the amazing modern equipment in the clinic, and staying up to date with all of the guidelines in relation to sterilization and PPE. We will soon be delving into the world of radiography, developing our X-ray taking and interpreting skills. It won’t be long before these students become experts in taking impressions, passing instruments, and providing oral hygiene instruction to our patients. Looking forward to all of the learning that lies ahead!

I had a great experience with Professor Badar. He is a great teacher with excellent communications skills.The way he explains in class is super awesome.He makes difficult topics very easy to understand .After his class I will just have a glance to my topic and that will be more than enough for me to do very well in my exams.I really appreciate his way of teaching and his guidance during the course.I am very glad to have such a great teacher to teach me at Oxford College.

My preference was the live classroom atmosphere, but I didn’t mind doing classes online at all. I found the lectures to have the same energy and positive outlook as I did in the classroom. And while it was difficult at times with the technical issues, I was grateful to continue classes online. You provided opportunities for us to discuss topics in breakout sessions and offered online information (Youtube, share screen, etc.) when needed. In the short time you had to prepare and adapt to the changes, I think you did quite well!

I haven’t been in school for many years. The last time was at least 25 years ago.

I am thoroughly enjoying the experience of us doing our classes online. One might think that there are distractions at home being online, yet I beg to differ. The fact that all of us are on the monitor at the same time helps me to actually be more focused, attentive, and interactive.

I am pleased that I am achieving good marks which to me is an indication of how this way of learning works well. Having a good instructor helps as well.

Having the Power Points enables me to save them and I have better notes to studying and reference.

I appreciate your attentiveness with students and often pull up things on the computer to further elaborate questions we have.

The advantage of online classes is that you get familiar with technology. The biggest challenge to me is family, sometimes interrupts my study. So far the classes have been awesome with our Lecturers assistance, I am progressing on well.

I really appreciate hardwork you do for students. The way you motivate students to accomplish their dreams and to have a good stable career is really a great job from your side. I personally feel that you are not only a good mentor but a trustworthy friend as well who has all the solutions to problems of students. Your guidance is really very valuable for me in both personal and professional aspects of life. I am very lucky to have you as my mentor all the time available for me to guide me in any manner you can. I truly believe finding your site has been turning point for me. After getting connected with you my confidence level is boosted up very well. Thank you for investing your time in me and guiding me in my career without you it wasn’t possible for me to restart my career.

I have been loving my experience with Oxford from day one, and I have never been so enthusiastic about schooling before, the Peterborough Oxford professors have really made my experience as well learning very easy and enjoyable on how caring they are for everyone’s future. Being in the IODA program and having Sandra as my teacher has been the best part of my Oxford experience so far. Her teaching skills and how highly positive she is every class, has made learning a lot of information super enjoyable and astonishing how much her teaching skills can implant into my brain.

I have been more than happy with Oxford, even though we have had a bit of a hiccup [with the pandemic]. The size of the classrooms makes it much easier for our professors to double-check that everyone’s understanding of all the information at hand, as well as following along in a timely manner. I have said nothing but amazing things about Oxford to friends and family, all my family knows how much I enjoy having Sandra as my teacher, and they all see with how well my marks have been while attending Oxford!

My experience so far at Oxford has been a good one. It has been nice to meet a few people, I do enjoy the smaller classroom size, it makes for a great learning environment. I have a great teacher and I have had great interactions with any of the admin staff that I have needed to work with. I’m always happy for quick responses to questions and fast email replies.

The transition to online learning when Covid-19 struck went much smoother than I ever anticipated so that was great and I have been totally loving school online in this platform. I appreciate that we are safe (or as safe as possible) with this approach to continuing our education, and am very happy to continue this way.

I really value the timing of the classes (being in the morning) which allows for flexibility in other schedules.

So far, so good…Its been a great fit for me personally.

I just want to thank you so much for being with us this hard and long module Anatomy & Physiology II for esthetic. You gave us a learning by ourselves through reading and doing review questions for very clear and deep understanding. I don’t know other students, but for me I like this method because I understood all chapter so well.

I imagine if other ways were composed by power point by teacher, we just received information but not understand deeply.

I am very comfortable and excited in learning your module everyday without stress and worrying.

You also are strict in doing homework for students. The more you concern The more student think it isn’t a joke.

I know everyone has their own circumstances, but some they do not have good attitude in learning, but you cared them and accepted their behavior and solved problems perfectly in your way.

Thank you so much again one more time. I hope we could apply this module in the real -life practice to improve our profession career.

As per the instructors, the saying holds true that a good school is a reflection of the quality of the instructors and faculty, in the same way, a good student is a testimonial or a true reflection of the instructors he or she has gone through. Oxford College instructors are excellent and this has been demonstrated over and again as true excellence and genuine care in your correspondences.
