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

    7.8 /10

    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. 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 USD, I completed my admissions process via the online application portal.

    Course Curriculum :

    It is not just those classroom hours that make my college time. Outside classes, I lead a number of communities and volunteer service events. Those periodically organized workshops and webinars ensure to improve my skill-set as much as they have paved the way for me to transform from a reserved to an actively socializing person.

    Exams :

    A two month holiday that followed my graduation from high school gave me enough preparation time for the TOEFL exam that tests one's English language proficiency which is a mandatory requirement for students like me who wish to pursue their studies abroad, especially because of non-nativity. I secured 83 in TOEFL Internet-based test that gave me the trump card to clearing the admissions process.

    Internship :

    Since I have chosen Co-operative education, it's mandatory for me to take up work that is full-time as a part of my coursework. Also, I should be completing my field experience by the end of the program, and from what I have heard, they are usually unpaid. 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 11,000 USD towards tuition fees and about 1,000 USD 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 one's academic records and financial need. Since I am not eligible, I haven't applied to any.

    Faculty :

    My class comprises of about 20 students that keeps my professors focused on their teaching equally as they maintain a track on each student's performance. They provide us a separate time to clarify our doubts and a feedback session is dedicated to improving our weak areas. They are very friendly and cooperative that they lead us all through some bright and insightful sessions.
