What Students Are Saying

4.07 Average Rating
each school within villanova is different, but all require a good amount of work. some have tons of group projects, others have major tests that take lots of preparation, but everything is still kept fair. there's also a large core curriculum that each student must fill, ensuring that every graduate has a liberal arts education as well as their specialty.

VERY RIGOROUS
Anonymous from Western NY
I find Villanova University challenging on all subjects, but not to a point where I have never been able to figure out what to do or find help. Each professor is eager to help students with lessons. As long as you put in the effort, the grades will happen. As long as I did not procrastinate, I did not have trouble finishing up my essays, projects, and homework.

No matter what major you are in or whether you are attending as an undecided major in the sciences or arts, the professors at Villanova University will always challenge you and give you a lot of coursework to better understand the subject. The work can get stressful but at the end the hard work you put in will all pay off. Professors are required to give you their office hours so take advantage of them because they help. Every subject including business classes have tutoring for their students. If you truly aim for an A, you can get it through hard work. The Falvey Library at Villanova University has many resources like the Math Center, for math help, the Writing Center, for proof reading and writing help, and even a Learning Support Services center, which help you with time management, study skills and other things. For each class you do have to put in two hours of study time at least. Even the language classes at Villanova University can get hard if you don't put the effort in.
Student from Upper Darby, PA
The courses at Villanova are designed to challenge the student body while remaining possible to accomplish. If any classwork is causing you too much trouble, the Writing and Math centers are full of people who have taken the same classes before you and they are happy to help out. The professors go out of their way to arrange office hours with any students who have questions about the material or anything in general.
