    REVIEW OF LETHBRIDGE COLLEGE

    It is close to home so I can still live at home. It offered the program I wanted to take and has small classes that suit my learning style. I met the application criteria and started college in the same year I graduated from high school. The college provides a wide variety of programs and has a very inclusive environment. The college is also very open to international students.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The course curriculum is mostly good, but one of the second year classes would be better suited for the first year.

    GOOD COLLEGE FOR THE POST GRADUATION COURSE

    I got to know about Lethbridge college from the internet and it can be easily found from Google, admission process and application fees are also quite as it's cheaper than other colleges and universities. I find this very comfortable as in India, most students prefer agents to get admission to foreign colleges but I applied to this College by myself without the help of any educational agent as just by following the rules of the Canadian immigration website.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The faculty of this College is also very good as they are very cooperative to students and trying to provide all aids to their students and the qualifications of instructors are also very high as mostly are Ph.D.s in their fields and there's no one with bachelors. Furthermore, their teaching method is also very effective as even international students have no problem to communicate with them as one can easily understand them.

    LETHBRIDGE COMMUNITY COLLEGE - COMMUNITY COLLEGES AREN'T ALWAYS BAD

    It is my local college and I heard good things about the program I wanted to take. It also fits best into the funding budget I had to work around. According to the career counselor that worked there, it also had the best career turnaround in comparison to most colleges.


    Course Curriculum - 

    It needed a bit of improvement to be a bit more future proof, but since I have attended where I have heard they've improved it quite a bit. Some things like hands-on tasks were not really frequent but as time went on the professors knew some students needed that.

    REVIEW OF LETHBRIDGE COLLEGE

    It is a very high creditable program. Many police agencies look up to this program and will hire you if you do well in it. It is very informational for a career in the police but also an area in law enforcement.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Classes are Informational but could be more challenging, classes have lots of assignments but are fairly easy and straight forward. The fact that the classes are taught by retired police officers is inspiring.
