A:

There are no additional costs for fall and winter courses
at Acadia, if you are enrolled as a full
-
time student. This
is what most students do. If there is a need to take a
spring or summer course, then students can approach
Open Acadia (see [2]http://www.openacadia.ca/) to
take such courses. Note that students who wish to do
co
-
operative education must pay a co
-
op fee for each
term they are working (see [3]http://co

FAQ

Q:
What is Aca
dia's ranking and acceptance among North America's employers, and Acadia's alumni status. Is there a
3rd party source to check Acadia's ranking among other universities in Canada or North America? Any information
regarding howAcadia's alumni employment situation is after graduation?

阿卡迪
亚大学的排名如何?毕业生在北美雇主
机构中的接受度如何?有无第三方
评级机构信息可参考?能否提供阿卡迪亚毕业生就业情况的信息?


A:

MacLean is the third party of choice in Canada when Canadians are looking for university rankings for their children.
Please see their most recent 2010 rankings at [5]http://oncampus.macleans.ca/education/2010/11/10/our
-
20th
-
annual
-
university
-
rankings/


Acadia is categorized a Primarily Undergraduate university. We have been 2nd in the country in the last two years.
Acadia is also the only university to have placed first in all four categories (best overall, highest quality, most
innovative, and leaders of tomorrow) in Maclean's annual reputation survey. In the 20 years that Maclean's has done
this survey, Acadia has ranked in the top three 18 times.


It is not uncommon for our Computer Science students to have jobs up to 8 months prior to their graduation. This is
often because of their co
-
op work terms, where employers get to see the value of their abilities in advance.


To my knowledge, very few of our students have had a problem finding a job in the ICT field. Please see our alumni
video webpage at [6]http://cs.acadiau.ca/media/videos.php#alumni_ambassador


Please make note of Dr. Francis Lau who was a classmate of mine at Acadia. He is now at Univ. of Hong Kong.


Boya Li is a more recent MSc graduate, who grew up in Beijing, China.


Also note the most recent videos at the top of the page on Mobile computing (iAcadia app) and Video Game
development at Acadia.

A Student Perspective


Han Xu (2nd year): “Acadia University is located in
the town of Wolfville, Nova Scotia, approximately
100 kilometers northwest of Halifax. It is very
beautiful and quiet university. The environment and
atmosphere here is very suitable for study. The
computer science program is well respected in
Canada. I am one of the computer science students.
Wolfville is a small town, but there are several
Chinese restaurant, supermarkets and shopping
centers around it. It is very comfortable to live here.”
