STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

MY OWN REAL JOURNEY IN CANADA.

It is a beautiful and well-reputed as well as leading college of BC. I came to know about this College from a friend of mine. The admission process was also not so long and I got the offer letter very easily and quickly. The application fee was also not so high. I did my 12th in medical along with 80%marks.


Exams - 

I opted for this program because I have a great interest in the science and scientific field. The batch size of mine is 2 years diploma for this I need 60 credits from 20 subjects. I took the IELTS exam for getting the visa with the score of 6.5 overall. Two semesters of mine are done with the 33 credits.
