Recipient Testimonials

Mollie Monger

Fanshawe was a great experience that has taught me so much, brought me great friends, and allowed me to grow in ways I didn’t think was possible. […] I chose Solent University’s Photography program because it feels like a great extension of the coursework I did at Fanshawe. We learned a lot of technical skills. Solent's program will encourage me to tap into my creative side. This will push me to diversify my skill set and will open up more opportunities for new connections and experiences. All of this will impact my career by expanding my artistic, technological, and business knowledge and skills. I have a great interest in travel, cultural, and landscape photography and going abroad creates accessibility to all of England and Europe. The opportunities for me to explore and find beautiful people and places to photograph excites me.

My advice to other students looking at transferring to an international school is to not be afraid to ask for help. I think this comes in handy not just for applying to an international school, but for everything. There are so many layers and parts to going to school internationally with the application, the visas, finding accommodation, flights, finances, etc… It is a lot of work, and can be very intimidating and scary. But finding people to support you and give you guidance can make it more enjoyable, less time consuming, and makes everything feel more human.

Fanshawe was one of my top choices of colleges due to its pathway agreements with Western University. There are plenty of opportunities to transfer not just to Western, but many other institutions and this made the choice very desirable. I picked this particular pathway because it allowed me to complete my Certified Financial Planning (CFP) prerequisites and get the hands-on experience I will need in my career. The pathway also allows me to get my degree at Western, which I hope to use to further develop what I learned at Fanshawe. One of the best parts is that both the diploma and degree can be earned in the same four years it would have taken to only have earned my degree without the articulation. In addition to all of this, my diploma from Fanshawe has already landed me employment in my field while I study at Western on a part-time basis which will give me a huge head start following the completion of my degree at Western.

Though I did not get the in-person college experience, my professors within the Business - Finance program always went the extra mile to ensure our success. They always made classes relevant and interesting which helped me develop a deep understanding of the material. The connections I developed with my professors are certainly the most meaningful part of my time at Fanshawe.

My advice to students looking to continue their education is to make sure they choose something they are really passionate about. It will take plenty more effort to excel in something you just don't love to do. Of course, there will be courses you prefer over others, but as long as overall it is something you enjoy, you will always find a way to do well.

I frequently heard about Fanshawe College when I was carefully considering my future study. I decided to pursue a career as a nurse, so I looked up more information about Fanshawe’s nursing program online. I chose Fanshawe because I found that entering the school would open up a lot of opportunities for my future career or academic interests. Most importantly, I chose this school because they had great pathway programs and pathway scholarships. In 2021, I enrolled in Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Advanced Diplomas and Degrees. This program really helped me to comprehend subjects that are relevant to health career paths. I could then get ready for health career programs. Thanks to this program, I was able to get a lot of options to study health-related career programs. This pathway program would be beneficial for my future career as I have been gradually expanding my knowledge of healthcare. This means that I would be more professional in the healthcare field.   

One thing that astonished me was how fast every Fanshawe employee, including professors, teaching assistants, program coordinators, and many other staff members, responded to my inquiries. Also, I was impressed that Fanshawe’s professors were so passionate about teaching their students. They put a lot of time and effort into supporting the students.

If you are thinking of continuing your education, you should put a lot of work into studying because having good grades will open up more opportunities for you. Moreover, find helpful resources on the school's website and make good use of them. At Fanshawe College, there are numerous resources that may support both your academic goals and your financial concerns.
