BBA from Brandon University in Canada

    9.0 /10

    I had applied online and had submitted my secondary and high school official transcripts and had paid a non refundable application fee as required. It was important to apply as early as possible and to complete the application as much before the deadline as I could. On being accepted to BU, I had to furnish financial proof of being able to meet the cost of study for at least a year and had to apply for a study permit in Canada. I had also signed up for the Manitoba Blue Cross health insurance coverage, which was compulsory for us international students.

    Course Curriculum :

    My course curriculum was really good and it gave me the strong foundation, I had wanted to build for further studies in Business Administration and it gave me the skills I needed for a career in the field of business.

    Exams :

    The Business Administration undergraduate level program offered by BU was very competitive and of internationally high standards and so I had chosen to apply to this program. Being an international student, I had to submit English test scores. TOEFL/IELT/PTEA were the test scores that were accepted among several others such as the MELAB and EAP. The minimum required IELTS score was 6.5 and the minimum requited TOEFL(IBT) score was 80 with at least 20 in each section of the test. Apart from the English scores, there was no other entry requirement for my program.

    Placement :

    We had career counselling services on our campus and we also had a Career Planning and Placement section, which helped us immensely in matters related to - regular resume and cover letter drafting workshops, on-campus recruitment and meeting prospective employers at career fairs. We had a wonderful Career resources centre, which gave us access to information on job opportunities and employer information which were available in the corporate files.

    We had a huge sports arena and fitness centre on campus and there was even an indoor track and field . We also had a number of clubs and a student union.

    Fees :

    I was an international full time undergraduate student and I had 15 credit hours in each semester. I was billed at international tuition rates and my program tuition fee each semester was around 6912.53 Canadian dollars. There were scholarships for students from accredited Canadian schools and for International Baccalaureate students and as I was not an IB school graduate, I was not eligible for any scholarship or scholarship-bursary.

    Faculty :

    We had almost eight professors who taught us in different lecture sessions and they were all, already working in the field of business since many years and had the necessary experience of how the business world operates and functions on a day to day basis. We had a student faculty ratio of 12:1.

    I had stayed on campus at the Flora Cowan Hall which was for women only and could accommodate a 110 students. Mine was a beautifully furnished double occupancy room and it had wifi internet access and a cable outlet and we had a laundry room and a kitchenette in the basement, for our own use . I paid around 8770.61 Canadian dollars each year for my room and board which included the BU Premium Meal Plan.
