Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2009

UBC is a good place to go if you know why you are there. My only regret is I went straight after high school and spent my first two years "exploring my passions" as kids are sometimes told to do. UBC was too big a school to do that. I ended up focusing on history and enjoyed that but I think UBC will be far for rewarding to a student with a focused vision on what career they want. UBC is huge and thus it is sometimes difficult to get the advisor you need. They are there though so have a thick skin and be ready to send multiple emails to bother the person you need to talk too. If you value one on one attention you probably want to go to a smaller school. Vancouver is in incredible city, but careful falling in love with it. You will need serious income to live in that town.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2013

The Human Services and Psychology programs at the University of Bridgeport were really good. They were quickly able to get a cohort started and maintained the core group of individuals throughout the years of study. The variety of classes and additional certifications provided were phenomenal. They had staple professors of which you were always able to communicate with and brought in adjunct professors leading in their field to help diversify our education portfolio. I loved it and ended up meeting some great professionals to reach out to within the field.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

It's a very close knot program where students spend lots of time with the friendly and willing professors, who are always willing to mentor students both in and out of the classroom. Its a private school that is reasonably affordable, with no GRE score requirement, which is a relief. It's a beautiful campus that is situated by the ocean, and the views are excellent. It takes an hour by Ferry or driving to go into New York City.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2017

I love the Human Service program at the University of Bridgeport. The advisors and teachers are amazing and they really work with you. I had a great experience overall and learned so much about myself. I've interned at different agencies and gained experience in the field as well.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

I am really proud to be a student of this great learning institution because I have improved academically, mentally, and psychologically. it is a diverse school which gives me the opportunity to meet and interact with other students from across the world. The school is equipped with world-class learning facilities, great library, and a 24 hours security presence.

This school is a big ripoff. They charge a lot of money from students, but give nothing back.

Some of the teachers can't even speak proper English.

Living on-campus is terrible. Sometimes you don't get hot water for hours. There's a health center that closes at 6pm. And the gym has nothing. You can put at most 5 people in the weight lifting area and only about 5 machines. There are only a few basketball courts. No other intramural sports as they mention on the website.

I sent my official transcripts from another school, and the admissions office manage to lose them. And some services that are supposed to be confidential are run by student workers, hence no confidence at all.

Especially, the International Services advisors are impossible to reach for any advisement. They don't seem to care about the students. Some advisors don't even smile at you unless they personally know you.

There is a library, with small amount of books and printing costs 15 cents per page.

Overall, University of Bridgeport is a terrible place to study that is located in a unsafe area. My advice is, any other university is hundred times better than U of Bridgeport in many different ways.
