Algoma University - Opportunity for Bangladeshi Students
Small class sizes, low tuition fees, a beautiful environment and friendly campus atmosphere are just a few of Algoma University's wonderful features - especially when it comes to attracting international students to its campus.
Surrounded by the rich, natural beauty of northern Ontario, Algoma is host to over 1,200 students a year, a small university by Canadian standards, and ideal for cultivating an intimate and warm environment.
Algoma's international students hail from a wide variety of diverse backgrounds and cultures, yet celebrate their differences and learning from each other. With "inclusion" being one of the key values that the institution prides itself on, the university's website attests; "At Algoma U, every student will find a place to belong".
"Algoma's appeal lays in its close-knit community and small class sizes. For students from Bangladesh travelling overseas on their own for the very first time it's a great fit," explains Shafkat Chowdhury, the Canadian University Application Centre's Director in Bangladesh.
Perhaps nothing embodies the close, personal relationships and attention paid to every student that the Annual Induction Ceremony. This ceremony occurs in September at the very beginning of each year and serves as a formal way to recognize and welcome ach new student, staff and faculty member to the Algoma university community.
TheInduction ceremony foreshadows the day when these first-year students will walk across the stage and receive their university degree during the Convocation ceremony. Only a smaller university could welcome its students in such a formal and yet personal and individual manner.
"In fact," Shafkat continues, "what international students need most is personalized attention - be it from professors, friendly familiar faces on campus, or international student services. It really makes a big difference - and that's precisely what they find at Algoma. Students cope well with the pressures of academics when they are happy and well-settled.”
With professors who are internationally renowned experts in fields such as Business, Community Development, Economics, Biology, Information Technology, Psychology and Computer Science, Algoma offers a wide range of quality undergraduate programs for students to choose from.
Among several unique programs at Algoma is the 4-year Bachelor of Science in Computer Games Technology. The program provides rigorous training in the design and programming of computer games. Students study a significant level of mathematics as a foundation for the computer graphics courses offered by the department, along with courses in game design and game artificial intelligence. The application of computer science ranges from simple game playing to control of space vehicles, power plants and factories, from banking machines to medical diagnosis. The growth in the past decade in both computing technology and applications has been phenomenal.
For international newcomers, Algoma's in-depth orientation helps studentsto settle in and prepares them to make the most of their university experience. Students are encouraged to take part in a range of recreational activities, such as camping, skiing, and hiking, and a variety of cultural events are specially hosted to help students celebrate their own cultures and traditions - while at the same time learning about others'.
Recently, the Sault Ste. Marie Cricket Club has been formed. The team is comprised of a mixture of international students, recent immigrants to Canada, and a few curious Canadians who have taken to the game.
Other services are available to help support individual interests and/or beliefs, including conversation partners for students who would like to improve their English, a Muslim prayer room, international film nights, and the Algoma Multicultural Students Association, or AMSA, which is an organization run by international students.
