Hamilton, ON (PRWEB) August 10, 2012
Mohawk College ranked among the top large colleges in Ontario in a recent survey study conducted by Compustat Consultants Inc.
The study aimed to capture the overall satisfaction rates of continuing education programs at various colleges in Ontario. The results of the study were based on the responses of 46,614 continuing education students across 24 different Ontario colleges.
The survey was divided into two categories. The first category, Teaching and Learning, consisted of 19 prompts, all of which asked students to assess specific aspects of their in-class academic experience, including the course content, the opportunity to participate in class discussions, and the fairness of evaluation. Among all of the colleges represented, Mohawk College received the top scores in 16 of these areas, giving the rate of student satisfaction an overall range of 87-98%.
Mohawk also scored favorably in the second category, General Satisfaction and Perceptions, which had students provide a more general assessment of their college’s overall performance. Compared to the results of a similar survey done in 1999, Mohawk’s scores have increased by 4-7% in almost every area:
- Quality of instructors at this College: 95% (up from 91%)
- Quality of courses at this College: 95% (up from 91%)
- Helpfulness of staff at this College: 95% (up from 88%)
- Academic Advising: 87% (not applicable to the 1999 survey)
Continuing education students make up almost three-quarters of Mohawk College’s entire student population, which makes the top-ranked survey scores all the more pertinent. Currently, Mohawk offers hundreds of continuing education program and course options within the following categories:
- Creative & Visual Arts
- Distance Education
- Engineering Technology
- Health Sciences
- Human Services
- Languages & Communications
- Leisure Education
- Associated Professional Programs
- Bridging Programs for Immigrants
Along with continuing education and online learning courses and programs, Mohawk College also offers full-time diploma programs and industry-specific apprenticeship programs.
