Columbia College is located in the heart of Vancouver near the science world which is a perfect place for school and easy to commute. This college has provided me with the perfect opportunity to explore myself and what do I really want to major in. I have also heard the stories of this college in my own city seven seas away. It is a little expensive for the internationals but I would say the experience is worth it for sure.
ILETS 8, math 95, physics 98, chemistry 93, English 95. ILETS is the world-known exam to test English credibility and can help one get into any university worldwide. It's in 4 stages: listening, reading, writing & speaking. We must quality in each to pass the whole exam. And high school grades in the mentioned subjects are also a key aspect to get into an institution in Canada.
Beacuse I heard a lot of good reviews about this college and I had a lot of my friends studying in this college as well and this college was on 3rd number on my list when I was changing my college from my previous college
This course is good and the curriculum is also fine. I am doing good with my studies without facing much difficulties. Overall, curriculum is going wonderful and I am enjoying it. If I doing good my parents are also very happy back in my country.
My friend referred me to this college. Also, the fees are less compare to other schools and universities. Also, there is a choice to choose courses and the teaching system is good. Also, most of the punjabi students attend this college.
It is very easy to understand the curriculum of each course. You can choose the course as you wish. But you must meet the criteria and requirements of diploma or degree. Also, there are different levels for each subject.
