STRUGGLER

I got to know about this college from google and some peers who were already in this college but different branches. If I talk about the admission process that's way too long for an international student like me. Appy through the online portal, pay 100 CAD as the application fee, get the Offer letter, pay the fees, and wait for receipts. I applied to 3 colleges. Actually I wanted to go to a peaceful area and In Cornwall, there are 80% of old people and job opportunities were much more there. I got 93% in 12th and 3.3 GPA in my diploma out of 4.


Course Curriculum - 

Course Curriculum was pretty easy and in a chronological way. The program is designed to provide us a degree that combines the practical strengths of a college environment while including the theory-based education provided at the university level. It is also available on a part-time basis.

ST LAWRENCE - MY DREAM INSTITUTE

The reason why I chose St Lawrence was to gain some international experience. Also, with the suggestions and mentoring provided by my school seniors who are currently also my seniors in the college, I was able to crack St Lawrence's admissions. Being a Commerce student from high school, I was very much clear that I wanted to pursue Business Administration for my aim is to become a successful entrepreneur in the future. With a high school GPA of 2.90, I met with those basic criteria to get into St Lawrence. Also, the college charges an application fee of $100 as I submitted my application form through the official website.


Course Curriculum - 

Being that first-year student, my study is currently focused on basics of Economics, Management, Computer applications, Accounting, and Finance. In the next three years, more attention would be paid towards business, marketing and strategies to evolve in the global market.
