    After doing IELTS in India I applied for offer letters of three colleges and I got offer letter of this college very fast than other colleges. Moreover, it's a government college. I heard about this college from my agent. He told me all the procedures of this college. Admission requirements, fees and about semesters.

    Exams :

    I joined the business program because my dream is doing my own business one day. Mathematics is my favourite subject which this course includes. In this program there are other subjects like accounting , communications and marketing which are all related with businesses. Human Resources is also a part of this program which teaches about Canadian Laws , rules and regulations. . As I got 3 GPA in one and second semester and hoping the best in next semesters too.

    Close to home. This is what made my decision very easy. Since I am only 18 years old. I just wasn't ready to move away. Plus, I would like to save money, spend more time with my family and pets and not pay for food

    Course Curriculum :

    Nice and specific, easy enough to handle as I am only 18 and I am still unsure of what I would like to do, whether I continue with my studies in another program or join the world in the workplace. I really like how there is a mix of mandatory and elective courses.

    Based on reading the program handouts and talking to current and past students, it is a really good program that does a great job of preparing you in every way possible after post-secondary. The vet tech at my clinic went to the same school and she is very knowledgeable and great at her job.

    Course Curriculum :

    I think the curriculum accurately achieves all subjects necessary to be successful throughout our college career since each semester accumulates onto the next. Also, the is a wide variety of animals that we get to leave about which will be helpful for those who chose to continue on with their studies and would outside a small animal clinic.
