yconic is the place where you can give and get the help you need for your life as a student. To help keep our community an enjoyable, helpful and safe place for all members, please adhere to the following guidelines.
1. Be nice to people. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but there is no need to insult other members. For example, "X major is over-saturated right now. You might have trouble finding a job" is fine. "Your major is dumb. Have fun working in fast food," is not helpful nor appropriate.
2. Ask actual questions. If you're looking for help with something, titling a thread "HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO" isn't going to appeal to the members that may be best suited to help you. Be specific and title your post with relevant information.
3. Don't abuse the anonymous feature by pretending to be multiple people. Surprise, surprise, we know who posts what :)
4. Please only tag relevant interests when you create a new thread. Adding unrelated interests is unlikely to get you the help you're looking for and can frustrate other members.
5. Avoid spamming. This includes replying to your own thread for the sole purpose of moving it up the discussion feed.
6. Don't expose other people's personal information. If someone is posting anonymously, please respect their privacy.
7. If you see something you don't like, click the 'Report' button in the post menu and a moderator will review it. Please avoid commenting on inappropriate posts as this only encourages them.
8. Did a post help you? Click the "Was this post helpful?" button to help us recognize our most helpful members and so that other people will know the response was...you guessed it, helpful!
If you do not respect our guidelines, you may be temporarily or permanently banned from the yconic community.
When I was at the uni fair, UofT St. George provided me almost no information on their Linguistics program because there was no specialist in that field of study. Is there anyone in the program? If so, I'd like to hear your experience because it's not the most popular field by any means. Does anyone want to study Linguistics?
My name is Max. I have been living in the UK for five years. I tried to enter the University of Kent in England which I did. I relied on government financial help which I was entitled to but did not receive for some unknown reasons. They explained it that I did not have enough evidence for my address history in the UK. That was strange because I presented all the necessary proof of addresses. I don't know it might be Brexit and change in the regulations of Great Britain that became an obstacle for obtaining student finance. I am married and have two kids and it's very difficult for me to find money for education. My passion is languages, literature and history. I read a lot. The other day I was watching the opportunities of studies in the United States. Could someone help me, please? I really want to get a PhD. At the moment I hold a Master's degree in Linguistics, Translation and Interpretation. My search led me to this website. Could you, please, tell me how it works and whether it is possible to get any help?
I am currently in grade 12 and am seeking some advice as to which Universities in Canada, preferably in BC, are good for linguistics as I am an aspiring speech language pathologist. Any personal tips, or information about the programs would be ver helpful to me
Hi, I'm taking cognitive science in the fall, and I'm wondering if there is anybody else on here either currently taking it/planning on taking it or graduated that could tell me what they did for coop? Or even what they are planning on doing after school. It's a course that really interests me but I'm not sure what I can actually do with it :/ I'm not planning on getting into psychiatry, so I'm wondering what else is out there :) thanks!
I'm extremely stressed and nervous about university applications, I'm worried if universities will care if I finish grade 12 through ILC. I have moved high schools three times and I have decided to finish grade 12 through ILC, will they ask for a reason why I chose ILC? My marks were not the greatest in grade 11, I failed some courses so I also have to take three grade 11 courses through ILC. I am trying my hardest to achieve amazing grades for my top six uni marks, will they review my mediocre history or do you think I can still get accepted if my top six marks are high averaged? I am especially looking into University of British Columbia or Queen's University for the linguistics programs.
