I was always keen to study business administration, so that I can do further studies in this field, such as an MBA. I had applied online and had paid an application fee of around $100. I had uploaded my secondary and high school transcripts and had also uploaded a copy of my valid passport.
I was a full time student and my program was of 30 credits. We had about 10 courses and the quality was really good. I had chosen Marketing as my specialization and we used to participate in competitions and community projects locally.
From a really young age, I was a diary scribbler. I used to write stories and poems of my own. And one day I decided that I want to pursue my career in this field. So while I was searching for a perfect program that could lead me to my dream, I came across Okanagan College. This was the only college I found that was providing a course precisely on Writing and publishing. And the college even had various scholarship programs to help students to pursue their studies. So, I submitted my application form through the official website, the application fee for the process was $100.
The course has been very strategically designed to provide the students with theoretical and practical knowledge along. This program is not just about writing, design, and letterpress printing. This program blends a variety of subjects like English and applied technical skills and makes it a really innovative program. We have gained technical skills and a wide range of experience crucial to navigating the publishing industry.
Being a Computer Science specialized student from high school, before applying to any college I tested my interest by attending some online classes. That's when I realized that I should focus on database systems which are a developing field. Scanning through various available colleges, I came across Okanagan college offering a bachelor's degree in computer systems with a database as a specific concentration. With some background specialization in mathematical applications and English language proficiency, my application was chosen for admissions. I paid an application fee of $100 as I applied through the online application process. Also, I have a personal computer which is considered as one of those important requirements for the course study.
Currently, I am in my first year of study where I learn a wide variety of subjects that includes Operating systems, System analysis, and design, Visual Programming, Networking and Telecommunications, Information Technology, Critical Writing, and Mathematics. Second-year would mostly have its focus upon base subjects such as web development and computer data structures. The third and fourth year majorly is concentration inclined and hence, I would be studying Database Management, Database Administration, Software engineering, and Management Principles. Overall the course curriculum that the college has put up is appealing enough and satisfying.
I found this place with the help of my Consultant. Also, I've been searching for this place since I was in my home country and get in love with the place, this is the warmest weather in B.C. and it's beautiful. I'm hoping and praying to stay here for good. It's a good place to retire, wishing my family to bring here too. Lots of opportunities and being in love with nature helps.
The course curriculum was okay.
It was local. I didn't have to travel in order to upgrade my courses was the main appeal. Plus I already knew a lot of the staff and students at the college which was appealing. There are not a lot of choices in my area.
It's a very easy and affordable way to further your high school education in order to continue your education to either college or university. The curriculum covers everything I need to continue into my first year of science.
