    LIVING LIFE THE CANADIAN WAY.

    The university fit my needs and the city was suitable for my lifestyle.

Apart from that the program I wanted to study was available here and it matches my past experience.


    Course Curriculum -

    CAMPUS STORY

    I opted for this college because my family lives here. They did my whole process. They applied only in this university and then I got my offer letter. Then, we deposit the tuition fee and applied for a visa. On 12th, I got 75% marks. In India, I have done a bachelor's in computer applications with 70% marks.


    Exams - 

    I took this course because in the future I want to do a job in the marketing field. I have 60 credits for this course. My background was computer applications, but I always wanted to be a marketing entrepreneur. I took the IELTS exam in India. I got 8 bands in listening, 7 in reading, 6.5 in speaking and 6 in writing.

    STUDYING AT UNIVERSITY

    I came from Ukraine so the price is a good reason to choose TRU. It is cheaper than most Canadian major universities but still, it offers a lot of programs and activities. That fact that I had really good grades in school helps me still in studying and I did not have any problems with getting in a course.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The faculty is making a huge work making the course curriculum but again it depends on the teacher of a course. Usually, it is good because professors make it together. You can have some Midterms and tests. Then it is easier to get prepared for an exam.

    AN INSIGHT

    It had my course and other things not available in other colleges. Plus it is a university that holds many more credits than college. It is a Diversified university which is good for exploration as well.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Some not so important courses are included which is just wastage of time and money. But some are good and actually related to basic work reality. Varied and comforting schedules which are very helpful.

    GREAT TOURISM PROGRAM

    They had the only bachelor tourism program in Canada and on the west coast. It has a good reputation for the tourism program. Ideal interior BC location and close to where my partner lives. I have friends that took the program.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Great! I've learned about tourism, business, and the environment. I have had to take two economics classes, one introduction to economics and one economics of tourism, and the instructors were terrible. But all my tourism classes are amazing.
