    I had sought the guidance of my school teacher in selecting a college which is excellent in academic quality and affordable too. She suggested that I try applying to LC, as her daughter had studied there and is now doing very well in her field. I had applied online with a payment of an application fee of around $90. I had also emailed my transcripts copies and the biography page of my passport.

    Course Curriculum :

    The program structure was really strong and intensive. It gave me the necessary skills which I would need in order to succeed in the workplace. I had studied many subjects, including Business Mathematics, Accounting and Marketing Principles.

    They have the program I want which is the appraisal and assessment program. It's also a smaller based campus which I like. I like the smaller based campus because then you have more of a one on one relationship with all of the professors and personally I find it easier to meet people. I also knew people who had gone to college and have heard good things but about it.

    Course Curriculum :

    It's fantastic and very interesting yet it keeps you on your toes.

    I used to work as a dentist in India. I love working with children. So my consultant suggested to me about this program and college. She applied online for me and the application fee is $100. She asked me to apply for other colleges and programs too but I couldn't afford it at that time. So I decided to go only to this program and college.

    Exams :

    Well, I scored 6.5 bands in IELTS which is required to get the study permit for this program. This program provides the opportunity to work with children who might be with some disabilities or may need special care as I always wanted to work with kids who get abused but they don't have anyone to share about this.
