    I saw the advertisement of this college on the internet, then after a bit of research and asking some of my relatives living in Canada about this college, I was quite impressed. To further ensure that I would make the right choice, I inquired about it through the college's admission representatives who guided me and helped in applying for scholarships to study in this college. The application was submitted online on the SRACQ website, the application fee cost me $85.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course is tailor-made and well perfected by the instructors. We were taken to industrial visits which were really cool and education as we got the opportunity to closely observe the practicality of our subjects. This program is further divided into specialties like Geology, Exploitation, and Mineralogy. Since I was interested in Geology I had chosen it as my specialty. Other than that at the time of admission I had lots of options of courses like Business and accounting management, Mechanical engineering technology, and Medical Care.
