Education Tips

  • Education is a huge investment of time and money so be ready to ask a lot of questions of any college or university you are considering. Therefore, create a list of questions and take notes as you get your answers while talking to an enrolment advisor or when signing up and requesting information.
  • Be wary of any school that is unable to or refuses to answer any of your questions. A degree is a long-term commitment and choosing a college or university that understands and can meet your needs should be one of your top priorities.
  • Sign up and request information from several schools so that you can compare and, if possible, negotiate more favourable conditions.
  • There is no such thing as the "perfect" college or university. Stay open minded and realize that any number of schools may be a good fit for you and provide you with the degree and student services that you need.

Important aspects you should pay attention to include:

  • School’s accreditation
  • Financial aid offered
  • Tuition and fees. What’s included and what isn’t. Payment plans.
  • Student services available
  • Instructors’ credentials
  • How tests are administered
  • Time required to complete the program
  • How long the program has been offered and how many students have enrolled
  • Key dates
  • Any requirements or pre-requisites
