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 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.
The person that I met from the Immigration services (ISKA) helped me to decide which college to apply for. As a student that started her life in a new country and fulfilling her passion and dreams. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and work experience has gained and added to make me decide to enroll in this course.
Course Curriculum is Great.
I wanted to study business administration in Canada and also wanted to get settled there. I opted for this college particularly as its business administration program is highly ranked. Applying into the college was very easy as i only had to apply directly through the official website just by paying an application fee of $100.
The curriculum followed in my program is very well designed in order to provide knowledge in economics, accounting, financial information system, financial management, organizational behavior, human resource, strategic planning, marketing, and business communication.
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.
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.
Online research, this is the best colleges in Canada with a high rate of excellence and very experienced in this field. Good academic record. Lot's of international students are studying here with ease well infrastructure building all types of resources are available here. Transportation facility is also available.
Carrier scope is high in this program because computer networking is everywhere and in each and every field networking is required. It is a 16 months course divided into 4 semesters. My batch size is 50 plus students all of them are international and everybody has a very good understanding between them.
