Meet Our Student: Gurjot Virk

Q1. Where did you grow up and where do you live now?

A. I grew up in Brampton, Ontario, just outside of Toronto, and still live here.

Q2. Why did you choose Northeastern University Toronto?

A. I chose Northeastern University because the school presented a novel Master’s in Regulatory Affairs for Drugs, Biologics, & Medical Devices. All of the local programs only offer a graduate certificate, but Northeastern University is an institution that prides itself in the success of its students by giving them a competitive advantage in their respective fields in the form of a master’s degree. Along with the degree, the school has an expansive alumni network with a myriad of members that act as mentors to help pave the way for the next generation of Northeastern University students.

Q3. How will the Master’s in Regulatory Affairs for Drugs, Biologics, & Medical Devices help you to advance your career?

The Master’s in Regulatory Affairs for Drugs, Biologics, & Medical Devices will help advance my career because the program is designed to integrate the students directly into the field of regulatory affairs through programs such as experiential learning, co-operative education, and internships. In addition, the program covers Canadian, American, as well as international regulatory affairs to prepare its students to work anywhere that they wish in the world. The program is designed in such a way as to help students to learn about the field through experience as well as conventional academia.
