Nova Scotia Community College - A pathway to execute my career!

    7.7 /10

    I was an average student right from the beginning and with present-day competitive world conditions, my parents were afraid of how my education or career would take shape. Since my father is a Software Engineer, he tried to impregnate as much coding knowledge as possible in me through his never-ending lectures on them. Of course, that made a guiding path for me to walk upon, making me dream of my education base in software. Also, I was very specific about taking up a two-year course since I wanted to keep the duration of it limited and hence came Nova Scotia's Diploma in IT Programming as an unexpected breeze. With my high school transcripts, Study Permit necessities and an application fee of $75, I completed my admissions process swiftly.

    Course Curriculum :

    In this program, I am learning to create software solutions, writing effective code, and following established coding and design standards. Throughout my studies, I will be working in some of the individual and in some team projects as well. With the help of this curriculum, I am also getting trained to liaise with clients who have non-technical backgrounds.

    Exams :

    A two month holiday that followed my graduation from high school gave me enough preparation time for the English proficiency exam. I appeared for the TOEFL exam and secured 83 marks in the Internet-based test.

    Internship :

    Since I have chosen a Co-operative education program, it was mandatory for me to take up a full-time job. Also, I am required to complete my field experience by the end of the program in order to gain the certificate. And working there made me earn somewhere around $870 a week. Undoubtedly, these are a boon in disguise as I get to learn and work simultaneously that keeps me updated on present market conditions.

    Placement :

    From my peers, I got to know that placement services in my college are excellent with numerous job listings on the college's employment site. As of now, I am working with my career advisor on my profile building and goal-setting to grab hold of a desirable job opportunity in the future.

    Fees :

    I paid around $11000 towards the tuition fees and about $1000 as an International Student fee apart from accommodation and food expenses. Also, my college offers a number of student awards and entrance awards based on our academic records and financial need. Since I am not eligible for it, I haven't applied to any of them.

    Faculty :

    I sit in a class of about 20 students that keep my professors focused on their teaching equally as they maintain a track on each of our performance. They provide us a separate time to clarify our doubts and a feedback session is dedicated to us in order to improve our weak. They are very friendly and cooperative as well. All of their lectures are bright and insightful.
