    Although I applied to a total of 5 universities in Canada, my priority was RSU as it offers a variety of bachelor’s and associate degrees to assist us in achieving our academic goals. As well as a vibrant campus life with student organizations to foster development inside and outside of the classroom. My GPA was around 8, and I had to submit a common application along with my application fee of $20.

    Course Curriculum :

    My program of Biology degree was founded on the traditional disciplines of botany, zoology, and genetics but extends into newer areas of study including molecular biology, conservation, and ecology. The four-year general biology degree in environmental conservation diverges from traditional wildlife and fisheries management programs that emphasize curriculum in taxonomy and game management.
