Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 2019

The professors at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University are incredible. The experience, expertise, and research that they currently bring to the classroom is unparalleled. The professors are valuable resources with a wealth of knowledge and the desire to help their students not only succeed, but to do so with the best tool kit available.
2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The program effectively prepares students for careers in the medical field. Most of the faculty is very accessible. Assigned advising isn't always very helpful, so students may need to be more aggressive in seeking assistance. The program is fairly expensive and there are not many options for aid outside of what you find yourself.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

Tufts is a great school. Most of the professors are approachable and invested in your success.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

This program is comprised of amazing and supportive faculty and students. Everyone here wants you to succeed and be successful. The cons are the lack of free time between classes, fieldwork, and studying but that was to be expected of grad school.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

A very calm and beautiful campus with cool professors and high quality and innovative research ans study programs. The main cons in my opinion is the low level of TA or RA stipends which may have a negative impact on students quality of life considering high level of life expenses in the town.
1.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Like most places, some professors are great but many are not. Limited selection in classes. Most masters students DO NOT graduate in 2 years. Advisors in general do not help you graduate on time.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

The course selection is a little limited compared to larger programs. The professors are very knowledgeable though and are great resources. The workload is extremely high and much more responsibility is placed on students who perform research.
3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

The main pros from my perspective is that it has a low student to teacher ratio, so you will get more focus from your advisor. The main cons is that it is a small campus, so you will not have a big social network.
2.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

My program is bioengineering, this is an overlap of biomedical engineering and chemical engineering program. It looks like you could learn many stuff, but the problem is that both biomedical engineering and chemical engineering department do not admit you are the students belong to their departments. So you will not receive their any emails and also the meeting and party notice. And you have no access to attend these activities. Sometimes you will feel really frustrated.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

I have found a very supportive and encouraging environment at Tufts. I have been living in the local community for several years and find the area to be great in terms of accessibility to conveniences like grocery stores and fun activities and a good night life. The instructors at Tufts are dedicated to their work as well as to their students and I have so far had a very enjoyable as well as a very productive learning experience. There are many opportunities to get involved with student organizations and to learn about and be a participant in others' research and academic ventures.
