I wanted to study at a university in Canada because as a country is very economical with high value of any degree pursued from there. I got to know about Yukon College through a college fair that I attended. I have pursued my high school with an MBPC stream (Maths, Bio, Physics, and chemistry) and have scored 90%. I had paid an application fee of $100 for my online application.
The coursework covered topics like the ecology of northern landscapes, climate change, natural resource economics, wildlife ecology and management, biological adaption to the northern environment, etc which covered all the major aspects of the environment and problems.
I always wanted to contribute to the environment and in order to do that, I wanted to learn about the same. In order to obtain admission at Yukon College, I had submitted my IELTS score of 7 as a proof of English proficiency along with my official marks transcripts of high school. I had also submitted the above along with the online application.
The career opportunities available to us as graduates of the ENCS program are wildlife biologists, park warden, environmental educator, environmental policy analyst, traditional land use advisor, first nation resource manager, etc. For helping us choose a career, the college has established a career development center at the college premises.
The college organizes a large series of events throughout the year for us that are academic, career, sports and fun related. Events like job search strategies, health safety and nutrition workshops, academic writing and critical thinking workshops, etc are hosted.
The tuition that I had paid was $400 per credit along with a technology fee of $100 per semester, a student union fee of $50 per semester, Accuplacer of $15, and health insurance fee of $500 annually. There were several scholarships available about which we can inquire at the admission office.
The professor at my department were with terminal degrees in their specific field. The small classroom size enabled the professors to have more focus on each and every one of us personally and they made sure that we are understanding the subjects and topics better.
I stayed in the housing facility provided by the college for which I paid $2000 per semester. The application fee for housing was $200 (non-refundable). There are several housing plans available. My books and supplies cost $500-$700 per semester. My personal expenses were $500 per month.
