    I searched on their online website portal as advised by my grandparents who have been settled in Canada over the past 3 years and have taught their children in this same university. I reviewed their online website and learnt about the amazing infrastructure and integrative course in nursing taught by some of the renowned professors. Hence I applied on their online portal and paid an application fees of $120.

    Course Curriculum :

    I found the course curriculum very practice based which enabled me to undergo learning experiences taking place in the classroom, community, laboratory, and in clinical settings promoting incorporation and demonstration of theoretical knowledge into practice.

    7.0 /10

    For several reasons: parents\' influence, location, and science program. Chose UBC from two options: Simon Fraser University and University of British Columbia Main contributing fact to college decision: parents\' influence.

    Course Curriculum :

    Not extremely happy/excited about it, nor am I unhappy/mad about it. I am neutral on the course curriculum--no extreme feelings. I understand that it is standard course curriculum but I also see areas where it can be improved.
