    I always wanted to pursue my graduation from Canada. I did a lot of research before applying to the university but I was too confused. My uncle who lives in Canada helped me to choose this college. I applied through the Online Application form available on the official website, with an application fee of around $90.

    I opted for this college because it was the only one that had a criminology program in Montreal. I applied to a total of 4 other colleges in other programs. I went to CEGEP in law, society & Justice at Dawson college and graduated with an r score of 30.6. The admission process was pretty easy but you did need to pay a fee of about $150.

    It's the closest one, they have classes (in Laval and Montreal) only 40 mins away from me! they have very great reviews. the only other school that has criminology is 3 hours away. The admission fees were a bit expensive, around 2000$, but I like this school. I applied for this one and the one in Quebec which is three hours, but after visiting it, I didn't feel comfortable and the classes weren't as interesting as the ones in Montreal.

    When I actually started contemplating applying for an MBA, I was an IT Professional with an experience of 5 years. I had lost track of college education and learning over the period I was working. Hence, I focused on institutes I could easily get into without compromising on the quality of education. My idea was to complete the course as quickly as possible. Under my colleague's guidance, I tracked HEC Montreal offering a year MBA with an added bonus of french environment. Having studied French in high school, my instincts got way out of me to apply to the college without a second thought.

    Because it's good in my program. I also wanted to move out of my hometown, and Montreal is the second biggest city in Canada. Furthermore, it is way less expensive than any other anglophone city to study.

    I had a friend that went there and it seems great. Moreover, I'm from France and I wanted to go to Montreal and it was one of the best business schools there. I went to meet to learn about the school and it looks awesome. They have a trilingual course that I was interested in, so I took it.

    They have an autodidact approach to learning that I prefer over traditional classes. They focus on teamwork and problem resolution. It is also affiliated with one of the best children's hospitals in my city.

    Scholarship :

    I have governmental loans. I, unfortunately, did not get any scholarships because my mother's financial situation is considered sufficient even though she is truly not able to help me pay tuition. The loans were quite simple to get. The government set up a website to be able to enter our demand for loans. We then have to give certain proofs to our bank and loans are automatically deposited into our accounts.

    I decided to opt for this university because it was the only one who had courses in the French language all across Canada, and it was cheaper for me to attend this college. It is also one of the best universities in the world.
