NIC’s graduates are very happy with the education and support they receive, and one of the key reasons is because our college is smaller with ample services.

NIC is a smaller college with small international student community that offers an authentic Canadian education and life experience.

Even better, receive one-on-one instruction from our English and Math experts or peer tutors outside of classrooms
