STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

THE NORTH ISLAND EXPERIENCE

I chose this college because it was welcoming. I applied to different colleges but after interacting with representatives from the various colleges, I felt most welcome at North Island College. Also, Vancouver Island is a beautiful place, the city of Courtenay isn't too busy which is very important especially when you are coming to a new place for the first time. I also applied here because the school has the most promising list of scholarships.


Course Curriculum - 

It's great. I enjoy every single course on the program, especially Biology. The course content/curriculum is awesome.
