I was always keen to study at a Canadian university and so I had applied here. The application process was very easy and I had applied online by creating a new account. I had paid an application fee of around $40 and my secondary and high school transcripts were mailed to the Admissions office of St. Mary's by my school.
Our program was excellent and combined two very important fields of technology and business. Programming languages, Database programming, communications, Networks, and Security were some of the courses I had taken.
As I was choosing my program, I came across this program which combined both business and technology into a four year degree program. This is the reason, I chose this program. I had scored grade A in my class XII examination and so I was eligible to apply . I had submitted my TOEFL scores of 81 along with my ACT scores of 28.
Our Career Services department on campus, had career and employment coaches. They helped us with career guidance advice, resume writing and job searching. We did get to participate in a lot of career fairs in our college years and meeting employers face to face there gave us an idea of their expectations and what they were searching for.
We had our own student association in which I actively participated. I was not very keen on sports but my friends were. We had wonderful events such as African Heritage Month, International Day of Women and Girls in Science which were so much fun.
I was a full time undergraduate level student and my tuition fees for each course was around $1900. I had at least 18 credit hours each year. As I had scored more than 80% in my class XII examinations, I was automatically put into consideration for an Entrance Scholarship. I did not have to apply separately for it. It was renewed each year and my award was $ 1000. I had applied much before the deadline so that I could be considered for it.
We had wonderful professors who taught us the necessary skills with which we learnt to use our knowledge of software and programming to solve modern day business problems. In our first year we had a good number of students in our class, but towards the third and final years, we had around 20 students in our class.
I had stayed on campus. We had residence halls with furnished rooms and amenities such as kitchen, laundry and stores nearby for all necessities. I had selected the unlimited meal plan, which cost me around $2500 each semester. My room was a double occupancy one and it cost me around $5500 each year.
