    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    CANADA'S FIRST GREEN UNIVERSITY

    Canada's number one undergraduate university. However, the fee structure is a little bit low than another university, especially when we talk about international university fees. I applied in last April 2018 and get admission in seven working days through the university transfer program. Apart from its low fee structure, it is located beautifully on the top of the hill and in the middle of the wild life-such an amazing location for the nature-loving person.


    Exams - 

    Especially, if you are applying from India, you need to have IELTS 7 bands overall to fulfil your English language requirement and minimum 70% marks, if you pass 12th standard from any board. Or otherwise, 65%. If you completed your Canadian degree of 60 credits somewhere else then they do bot require IELTS examination however, they do transfer your college credits( 60) towards the bachelor degree.

    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    UNBC- SMALL, BUT POWERFUL!

    I chose UNBC because it was close to where I live, and is ranked the second-highest undergraduate school in Canada. The programs and small class sizes are a bonus too! The location is perfect. It is also Canada's Green University- I appreciate the emphasis on-campus sustainability.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I love my course curriculum! It is varied enough to provide an option and specialization. My one critique is that there seem to be some classes and that are lacking, like sociology. And I would love to see more co-op opportunities.
