    Criminology program, low tuition cost, close to home. Stays close to home allowed me to save an abundance of money, all the while being able to attend a university that was rich with academics. This also allowed me to not have the stress of living on my own while trying to explore my first year of university.

    Course Curriculum :

    The program offers a wide variety of subjects, whether you have an interest in the social sciences, language or arts.

    Since my school days, I wanted to do my Bachelor's in Journalism, and I heard about St. Thomas University through one of my friends. The best thing I felt about this university is that it offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs at quite an affordable cost. I applied for four different universities but the course and tuition fee I was looking for that best suits my budget was offered by St. Thomas. Also, I really like the accommodation facility here, it is spacious, clean, and really safe. So, I submitted my application form through the online portal, the application fee was $55.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course of Bachelor of Journalism is very well designed as it works on building our writing, storytelling, reporting, and many more skills. We learn to do podcasting, digital journalism, social media management as well which is really awesome. We get enough opportunities to utilize our theoretical knowledge in the real world. We have to do an internship during the course which is a bonus for us to learn and gain real experience of the work culture in the journalism sector.

    Bachelor of Arts is the core academic program at St. Thomas University and as I wanted to pursue Post-degree Bachelor in social work, I found this university significant. I have checked about the course on the University Website and come to know that it offers a direct field placement and social action field placement that provides first-hand experience in practical social work. The university also provides the course in the English language. I had a cumulative GPA of 4.0 in my Bachelor in social work and had the experience to work as a social-work volunteer, I applied for the course through the online portal. The course is very selective, so I had prepared a strong resume and submitted the personal-statement form to reason out why I want to pursue this course. Three letters of reference and an interview were also necessary. Also, proof of English language proficiency was required for international students. The application fee was $55 (non-refundable).

    Course Curriculum :

    The course of Post-degree BSW is mainly designed for graduate students, who have an undergraduate degree in the liberal arts and who are familiar with the extensive field of social work. The course curriculum intensively focuses on creating a generic practice framework for candidates so that they can deliver services to various client constituencies at a level of competence suitable for the beginning of the practice. The enrolment in this course is very limited, it is an intensive program with 60-credit hour continuing for 15-months. It builds on your previous undergraduate education and leads to the professional BSW credential.

    It was close to home and I got a pretty good scholarship to the school that I currently go to, but I'm switching programs because I am no longer interested in the program that I am taking and I'm switching hung to comp science.

    Course Curriculum :

    I don't like it that much, I am switching to comp-sci as I have found more of an interest in that program, the program I am currently taking is not for me and I am excited to switch out and move to a new university.
