    REALISING A DREAM AT AUSTIN COLLEGE

    I have always been an avid admirer of English novels and poetry. The web of magic and marvel that has been created by stalwarts like William Shakespeare and George Bernard Shaw has always had a deep impact on my psyche. Thus after passing my Class 12 Boards (ISC) examinations with 94% marks in English, I thought of pursuing my graduations in Creative Writing Studies from a college in the United States of America as I had the perception that it would offer me a greater amount of exposure. I researched several colleges and after intensely careful deliberation found out about Austin College, and because of the great curriculum, I applied online to this college. The application fee of the college was $25.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The program sturcture is extremely comprehensive and fascinating providing wonderful insights into the world of Literature and Western Culture. The course primarily focuses on the Study of American and International Poetry, Study of Global Middle Ages including the Crusades and Arthurian legends, Study of Science Fiction Novels, Study of History of the Monsters from Beowulf's Grendel to Vampires to Ridley Scott's Aliens in Our Monsters and Extensive works of Shakespeare.

    BEST COLLEGE FOR THE INTERNATIONAL STUDENT

    I was looking for colleges offering the Chemistry course in Bachelors. One of my relatives recommended Austin College. Along with Austin College, I also applied to two other colleges. Then after my selection in the college, I took admission to it. I applied for the college with the help of a common application form and it cost me $80.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I am being introduced to the chemical principles and chemical practices in the laboratory. Various past topics are also included in this course curriculum. Like Chemistry and the environment, chemistry and nutrition, chemistry and art, drugs and our society, energy, and fuel, and forensic chemistry.

    AUSTIN COLLEGE

    Since Austin College isn't a well-recognized college to most people, I had never heard of it when applying to schools. I only heard about it because my sister's friend had gone here and really recommended it. The admission process was simple. I applied through Applytexas and had to send my transcripts, test scores, and recommendation letters as well.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Great Course Curriculum.
