Medix College (Canada) Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (60)
This school has really prepared me for my career and future, and I am very happy about that. But the only problem I have is that they don't help you find "actual jobs" or help with job search. Yes they help find placements but what about actual jobs? Its taking me 3+ months to look for work and I am trying as hard as I can. My classmates have found jobs in less than a month and its taking me longer than I expected. I hope they do something about helping others with actual job searching for lab technician jobs.
Medix College is the best school that I ever attended. I enjoyed going to class everyday. learning new things and creating new experiences. Medix College allowed to expand my knowledge and understanding. Medix helped me to be where I want to be. They helped me in every areas that I needed help on and also what I needed to improve on. They will never stop helping you even when you graduate. I will advice anyone to go to Medix because they will help you succeed greatness.
The best decision I ever made , from the moment you walk into Medix College to the moment you end the program you feel secure confident and you ready to work. My NACC was on April and 5 months after am already hired I highly recommend Medix College.
You feel like a family in this school, everyone helps one another. There is also a time of fellowship to relieve your stress after a big exam.. In addition, you feel also that your special when you are leaving from your classmates. Teachers are great too, they know what they are talking and very patient when you ask them if you lack understanding.So, I would recommend Medix college to anyone who wants to go to college.
Being in this program is interesting. Interesting in a way that we I have experienced to compound medication and compute dosage. And also we studied the human anatomy. Every module I had to meet new students. The facility is good the personnel are great!:)
Medix College gave me a great opportunity to become one of the best PSWs in the City. The theory was so intense that helped me well prepared in NACC. They also have have the best facility for placement ( Ukranian Canadian Care Centre ) wherein I was able to experience the real work of PSW in a standardized setting in a long term care . That is why I got hired fast.
There is but one word to describe Medix: CULT. Show up, pay for the privilege of being here, dress how we tell you to dress (it's easier to control you if you are all broken-spirited and look the same!), think what we want you think (up to and including a course that can only be described as 'Brainwashing 101', also known as "Strategies for Success") and when in doubt, "Do it because we said so!".. no matter how out of touch with the rest of the world we may be! In a moment of weakness I enrolled in this cult. Worst decision of my life. I have wasted an opportunity I will never get back, and will regret it for a long time. This "school" is a money-making machine, operating under the guise of being a quality educator. It's not. Sure, there are student who will come and go, and think it's great.. because they don't know any better. For an accelerated program, we waste SO much time, what takes nearly a year could be accomplished in 5 months easily. It is better to have a group of students sit in a class, bored to tears with NOTHING to do, "because we said so", than it is to have lost time or work from home days. Makes perfect sense. When I first started, I had the best intentions. Now, I think "If I manage to make it to the end... I have no interest in this anymore.. this place has ruined the experience for me. I'll suck it up, ride it out and when it's over- go work in retail or a factory." Nice eh?
Wonderful experience, great instructors and friendly environment. Not only was I given the knowledge I needed for my new career - I also found new confidence in myself, gained some good friends, and at the end landed great job. The whole world of new opportunities is open for me. Highly recommended.
The Brantford campus is awful. The facility itself is dilapidated with a barely functioning student washroom, a 'break room' which is overcrowded, and classrooms which cannot comfortable accommodate Medix "small class sizes". The class is hectic, it is for the most part 'independent study', but with an attendance requirement? There are instructors who are former students of the programs they teach, which is great, but not everyone is cut out to be an instructor. You can be great in your field, but not necessarily equipped to teach. There is a very loose, selective dress code policy, depending on what class you're in and which instructor you have. Medix is capitalizing on the fact that Mohawk College has pulled out of Brantford and not everyone is interested in attending university. They have the monopoly on post secondary right now and it shows. There is no effort made to improve the quality of this school at all. The instructors turn a blind eye to the sad state of this "school" and everyone is more concerned with the new recruits every month (continuous in-take) than they are with the students who's checks have already cleared. Students who 'pay their dues' will get fluffed through their programs and be just as qualified as the ones who actually demonstrate some semblance of intelligence, and we're all equally qualified to do the job in the end? What admissions reps don't mention when they're selling you on this "prestigious" schools is that you are not likely to find a FT job in this field. Their employment stats are bloated and borderline fraudulent. Another example is the Community Service Worker and/or Developmental Service Worker programs. What they fail to mention before signing you up for these $20,000 programs is that if you don't drive, you won't get a job. Period. The majority of employers in those two fields REQUIRE a license and vehicle. As I look around their class, I see a group of students who will never get jobs once they leave. If you can get to ANY other school to complete your studies, please do. This may seem like an accelerated program that will get you the same education as a real school- it's not. There is so much pointless dribble thrown into the curriculum to stretch these programs out as long as they possibly can, as their money comes from having bodies in seats for as long as possible.
Medix college is a great place. It's was my first step as I was new to Canada. The teacher was excellent spend extra time helping me out. Some students go to school but do not study. When they can't meet pass mark they blamed teachers. I have seen many students been rude to teachers. I completed my programme and was hired before I even finished the course. I am very happy with the school and the staff.
