    Because its in a quiet location and student friendly. Provides a lot of opportunity for students and has high worth degrees.

    Course Curriculum :

    Can't judge very well as everything is online. Greatly decreases the ability of teachers to have very effective lectures. But each teacher tries their best. Course curriculum is tough unless you have a good background in what you chose. Then its doable.

    I found the university offering the course and subjects that I was interested it. Another brownie point went to its beautiful campus and very helpful and kind staff

    Course Curriculum :

    My degree being a co-op, does offer the internships and co ops in 2 separate fields related to Biology- conservation and health science. But its competitive. One needs to apply for it and then a proper procedure is followed and is seen if the person is eligible to get into the program. It is NOT necessary that if your degree is co-op, you’ll definitely get one. Its just that the option will be open to you. Other than that, there is a proper list of courses provided to you, including the mandatory ones that you need to complete in order to graduate, as well as some electives that you can take to complete your credits. This information is all given in the academic calendar of the university/college.

    I completed my +2 in the Arts stream with 90% marks. My school professor guided me to move to Canada as it is an eminent option to make my career bright. Pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Economics could not be better than doing it from Trent University. Thus I prepared for it and when I was called for the admission I was very happy. I had applied to the university with the help of a common application form.

    Course Curriculum :

    While studying the course I also get to know about the impact that individuals, businesses, financial institutions, and governments have on the economy. Through these studies, I will be gaining an understanding of the methods and tools required to analyze complex economic issues, such as unemployment, inflation, economic growth, and the regulation of the market structure.

    I always wanted to do my Bachelor's degree in Economics and nothing could be better than doing it from Ontario's #1 University. Completed my +2 in Arts with 90% marks, my teacher guided me to move to Canada is an eminent option to make my career bright. I also applied to other colleges but getting into Trent was the best option. I applied to the college through the OUAC and paid $100 for the application fee.

    Course Curriculum :

    Through the program, we are provided with a thorough understanding of the methods and tools required to analyze complex economic issues such as unemployment, inflation, economic growth, and the regulation of the market structure. The curriculum also helped me learn national and international data to explore trends, test economic models, and will give me the ability to recommend policies addressing inadequacies with market outcomes.
