Admissions with University of Windsor

Are you interested in applying to study in University of Windsor? Or just interested to know why Canada might be a great destination for your future studies?
In this Q&A a member of the University of Windsor admissions team offers advice to potential applicants about student life at Windsor, scholarship opportunities and why you should choose Canada over United States.

"Our tuition rates are significantly cheaper than US schools. When it comes to living costs we are about half the price here in Windsor compared to big cities.

Canada is also way safer than the US. We do not have a gun culture. Canadians in general are very open and accepting of other people."

Does University of Windsor have financial aid for international students? —Vitor Lacerda Siqueira

We do not offer financial aid for international students. However, there are other options that can help you.

We offer an ENTRANCE scholarship. You are considered automatically when you apply to our school. No separate application is needed. This scholarship can range up to $16,000 depending on your grades.

There are other scholarship you might be eligible for, but those you can only apply for when you become a student here. I will be honest, these scholarships are very competitive and hard to get.

You can also enroll into a program with co-op. Co-op is a built-in full-time paid internship as part of your degree. After your second year of study you will be able to work for an employer in your field (minimum 3 maximum 4 semesters) and get paid. This can help you financially.

When/If you are not doing co-op, you can also work part-time while taking courses (up to 24 hours a week) or full-time when you are not in school (up to 40 hours a week).

Why should I choose Canada over US universities? —Shreyas Kudari

There are many reasons why I think University of Windsor is a very good choice for students. First of all, University of Windsor is ranked 1st on the RISING STAR UNIVERSITY RANKING in Canada. We are a growing institution, and invested over 300 million in our infrastructure last year. We are also a midsize university which provides student a friendlier environment.

Windsor is a border city (Right next to the US), and truly international with over 18% of our student arriving from abroad. I am actually originally from Hungary, and moved to Windsor when I was 19. Windsor is the south-most part of Canada, so our weather is pretty nice all around the year. With some snow in the winter of course.

Our tuition rates are significantly cheaper than US schools. When it comes to living costs we are about half the price here in Windsor compared to big cities such as Toronto. Toronto is a big and expensive city, and your living expenses will reflect this.

Canada is also way safer than the US. We do not have a gun culture. Canadians in general are very open and accepting of other people.

Unfortunately we do not offer full scholarships. Unfortunately most Canadian universities don’t. There is numerous ways to help bright student though. Scholarships, work opportunities, research opportunities, etc. As I mentioned above.

Do you offer any medicine courses at University of Windsor?

Medical school is a post-graduate degree here in Ontario. You need to complete a 4-year bachelor’s degree first. We have a medical campus here which is affiliated with Western University.

 

I'm interested in becoming an editor, but I also love maths. Is there any way I can combine these two subjects? —Taylor Anderson

Students can do a double major and take subjects in two different areas. So you could combine Math with English.

Can you tell me about total or budget to school in UOW? Are UOW have a houses to student? —Winda Johan
