"As a Physics grad student one of the most important things is research, and when it comes to Physics and similar fields UCF has lots of very interesting and exciting research opportunities. The cons might be that you might have gone in thinking you might be doing specific research only to find out that you probably will have to do other research."

"This Graduate Program is ranked as the 7th best in the country. I attended UCF as a undergraduate and loved the school and the faculty. I feel that same about my current program. Everyone is so optimistic and cares for each individual student. They are so well versed in their fields that they have and answer or a direction to head you in with each and every questions. They are understanding and forgiving people and see you as a person. It is truly one of the best experiences I have had in school thus far."

"The pros of this graduate program include the classes at night from 6-9 pm which allows students to work all day and even full-time. The workload is not overwhelming and the program seems designed for students who need to work while pursuing their degree. Some of the cons include mandatory group projects/presentations in every class."

"You know what to expect each semester as far class scheduling. All classes are once a week at the same time. It's complements your work schedule. Professors are personable and easy to get in touch with."

"I truly enjoyed my time at the University of Central Florida while working on my Masters of Science with a concentration in Health Services Administration. The program faculty and staff truly care for the students and want them to succeed. There are a number of student organizations that work hard to provide additional value to their fellow students as well. I would not have picked any other school for my masters degree!!!!!!!"

"The University of Central Florida is an outstanding institution to come to, network, have fun, and get an education. The psychology degree program has plenty to offer and jobs can be found around the greater Orlando and Tampa area after completion of work. There's internships, labs, and many more things you can do in order to be successful enough to learn and get into a nice Master's degree program and Doctorate's. I can't really say much but UCF has everything any student would need. It's big, there's food places on campus, hair shop, and just it's an all around city!"

"The college program is great for those continuing on to Law School. However, I am an older student, returning to school trying to become a paralegal and almost a year after school, I still cannot get a job because everyone wants experience. I cannot afford an unpaid internship for 5 years all offices expect for experience as I have a family to support. Young students - get yourself involved early in an internship."

"UCF is a upcoming university, the department strive hard to improve the quality of teaching and research. For academic related item, it is all very good. The cons about UCF is it location. Orlando does not have good public transportation, so if you need something you normally have to drive, which is hard for international student. Fortunately UCF operate lots of shuttle bus for transit from living area to school."

"I did Direct Connect, a program where if you are accepted to UCF from the local Junior College, you enter in as a junior. Classes were offered at the same junior college for UCF as there are UCF campuses sharing the junior college campus. Some of the students are very involved. I was not able to be as involved because I worked daytime hours and could only attend evening courses. Most instructors were able to communicate with on a regular basis and even when I was having trouble, the professors worked with me. Though tuition was a little pricy, overall the school is great. I plan on returning!"

"Very competitive. But competition is sometimes based on something ridiculous. So, eventually, an A-student might not really understand what's going on in his field study, he's just good in taking classes and exams."

"I believe this degree is very important in identifying patterns of domestic and international issues, and helping shape the political minds of tomorrow that will be implementing and executing plans to solve real-world problems. The International Relations track was very useful in that it requires two additional terms of a foreign language that I found to be very helpful in not only language barrier break-down, but also to understand the way that other societies interpret information via their language building style."

"UCF Rocks!!! I enjoyed the education that I received at UCF. I have two Degrees from UCF. I am going to go back to get another. The staff, teachers and administrators are helpful, enriching and helped in anyway that they could with my educational experience. I recommend UCF to anyone who asked me where I attended and tell them what are great educational experience that anyone can get."

  • Degree: Environmental Science
"The campus is more like a mini town and has everything someone needs, whether living on or off-campus. Along with having such a large campus, comes with a large student body and some rather large classes. It is suggested to sit up front whenever possible to avoid distractions. With class sizes of 200, there will definitely be distractions. There are plenty of computers on campus and always a quite place to study. A major issue with having so many students is the parking, which they are trying to resolve with building more parking garages but be mindful of this and show up on campus with plenty of time to find a parking spot (first week of a semester, at least 30 minutes before class). For the degrees, they focus on a broad learning schedule and provide an array of restricted electives to personalize the program to students particular interests and career choices. Environmental is not a large program, at least not as covered as other state universities but the science and engineering programs are great here. There are many opportunities for internships with the extensive amount of businesses in the area. If anything, this campus is very well placed for networking with potential employers."

"This University has a lot to offer, but it isn't easy to work with at all. Everyone that you will look to to answer your questions will have skewed answers which makes it very difficult to know whether you are on the correct track or not."
