My Education at Heritage College

    6.8 /10

    I had always been eager to study in Canada. I found a computer science course which looked promising and applied to the college. I applied to the college from the online portal and paid an application fee of around $30. I had scored 85% in grade 12 and was able to clear the english proficiency requirements as well.

    Course Curriculum :

    My program is a professional course that provides the necessary skills for further education and works in the Information Technology sector. My curriculum consists of subjects such as web programming, hardware, and operating systems, mathematics for computer science, french, IT security. The course gave me a wide knowledge of the array of languages and security.

    Exams :

    In order to get admission into the program, I gave the IELTS exam for English proficiency proof in which I scored 7.5 and showed proof of the required mathematics background in school. I submitted the school transcripts, letter of recommendation, and health certificate. I also gave a comparative evaluation of my previous education.

    Placement :

    The college has a co-op program during the term where students earn from $12 to $18 per hour. After completion of the degree, we can apply to jobs such as web developer, systems analyst, programmer. The average starting pay of a graduate is $50,000 per year or $25 an hour.

    Events :

    There are a number of events that take place throughout the year including sports tournaments, trips, and games which are organized by the Student Services and the Student Association.

    Fees :

    I pay a fee of around $6100 per semester as a full-time student and the cost of books is around $300. I also pay a computer user fee of $10 and miscellaneous costs are around $2000. There was no scholarship available for international students so I pay my tuition fees in full. Other costs also include a housing which costs around $5000 per academic year.

    Faculty :

    All the professors hold a bachelor in Computer Science or a related field and a few hold master degrees as well. All of them are dedicated teachers who show a passion for the subject and had previously worked in other fields of technology before becoming a teacher at the college. They are great motivators and have taught us professionalism and effective communication amidst other things.

    Hostel :

    The college does not offer any on-campus housing so I reside in an apartment close to the campus with a roommate. The housing has been leased to us for a year and the costs of residing here are around $5000 per year excluding food and other costs.
