Student & Graduate Reviews

Gaby - 3/30/2017
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017
"Overall I recommend the Graduate Certificate Program for any students applying to medical school throughout a transition year. It emulates FIU HWCOM's first year medical school curriculum and prepares students for the rigors of medical school. The courses are taught by medical school faculty and at the level of medical school exams. We even took the NBME subject exams that medical students across the nation take, and in some cases the average of our class was higher than the national average. Apart from the rigorous academic criteria, we learn invaluable professionalism aspects that help us in interviews and in professional life. The professionalism classes helped in understanding ethical aspects of medicine as well as differences in insurance and health systems. This program is great for a transition/preparation year, but it should be noted that this program is extremely challenging; this is absolutely nothing like undergraduate classes. I recommend whoever enters this program apply to other medical schools and not have all of their eggs in one basket since medical school admissions is competitive. Overall, this program is great in preparing you for medical school and I highly recommend it!"

"Great professors and online learning was very convenient, while still getting the same level of commitment from professors and peers as courses taken on campus. The degree really helped me achieve many career goals and obtain the position I wanted to be able to have once I graduated."

"Florida International University is an amazing learning institution based in South Florida. The diversity of the student body, the welcoming environment, and the hard working faculty made my college experience an amazing one. FIU helped give me the tools I needed to finish my undergraduate and get accepted into law school with a scholarship. The present administration has continuously worked to see how they can make FIU a better university by incorporating more and more programs that benefit the students. FIU truly fits their motto of being "worlds ahead"."

"Florida International University is overall a great school with an ever expanding campus, and programs that are striving to go beyond the needs of today's society. The programs are ranking higher every year. I went back to FIU to get my MBA and I am extremely satisfied with the quality of the professors. They are teaching me skills that I am already applying on my day-to-day activities."

Liliana - 3/13/2017
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017
"I attended Florida International University as a Biology major. At FIU, there are so many opportunities being sent to you as a student. I have gotten so much information regarding internships I could apply to, jobs, shadowing, and research. I was even approached by a TA and asked to join a research group (although this doesn't happen often; you normally have to apply). You have so many opportunities to bulk up your resume as a student here, and the advisers are always willing to help or give you advice. Also I feel like I've gotten a great, well-rounded education here and feel pretty confidant going into graduate school."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016
"I travel a lot for work and the need to acquire my degree was important to me. I did a lot of research and found that Florida International University had the degree and field of study that I wanted. Within no time I called and filed an application and was ready to go. After graduating I still get emails on up and coming events and networking socials that will further my career. Upon obtaining my diploma I realized how much I needed to learn and decided that the next step for me was seeking a Masters. If it was not for the online program that was easy and flexible with my ever changing schedule I would not have come to that decision and be in my first year now."

"Fiu was amazing and the accounting program there is great with amazing professors and plenty of networking opportunities. Many students ended with multiple offers from the big-4, national, regional and local firms. If you do decide to attend make sure to join beta alpha psi or alpha."

"FIU was an overall fantastic university with opportunities for a wide variety of students. The faculty and staff is readily available to assist with both academic and professional endeavors. There are also many diverse organizations on campus that are great for networking. The resources available are also in abundance which made my experience that much better (i.e. library resources, financial resources, health resources, etc.) I would definitely recommend this university to anyone."
