    Tell us about studying criminology in Canada
    Studying Communications and Public Policy has been an amazing experience at STU. My lecturers have been so helpful and clear within my classes. I believe I have absorbed so much knowledge that helps me to better communicate both in my work and social life. Criminology has also been a good experience in terms of the quality of lectures and material. Of course as an international student tuition is always higher than normal but STU does provides scholarship opportunities that makes the burden a little less heavy to carry.
