What the Students Say:

"Heavy workload, to get good grades you have very little time outside of your studies."

"Ryerson might not be a well-reputed fashion school, but it is very tough and puts you on the front lines for every Canadian opportunity. It gives you the potential to be a go-getter however, having said that it is tough! Having a social life outside of the sewing lab isn't always possible, but you make lifelong connections with your instructors and your peers."

"It is a ton of work, but very much worth it. The instructors are knowledgeable and I feel as though everything I learn will be applicable to my future career."

"You make your own opportunities. Immediately begin volunteering/interning after you completed your first semester."

The Bottom Line: An impressive list of industry associations, a solid design program, and a reasonable price. Fantastic value — and it's also a great journalism school.
