Student Testimonials

Dale Garcia
The curriculum curated by my mentors instilled the basic principles of web and design. Without their patience and encouragement, I don’t think I would have the job I have today. I think the Comox Valley is the perfect learning environment for people wanting to take their studies seriously...if I needed time to retreat or escape, nature was just a few minutes away. However, my favourite part about living in the Comox Valley was definitely the people, many of whom I now consider life-long friends.

I selected NIC because of the range of courses offered. The education and my internship at NIC helped me to get familiar with the accounting world of Canada as well as the support I got from Student Employment Services helped me to prepare for my job interviews. Life at NIC was the best experience not just from an education point of view but also from a personal and professional development standpoint.

I met many difficulties at first, I did not know how to manage the courses and issues such as group assignments, midterm, final exams, and the balance between life and studying. However, with clear and informative instructions from the instructors, I gradually gained some skills in teamwork management, studying strategies, communication, presentation. As a result, I could get high marks in all courses. I would like to say thank you to all the instructors.

I wanted to improve my English skills so an English speaking country was the best option for me. I made amazing international friends! Teachers were very open minded and their classes were really interesting. The staff, especially from the Office of Global Engagement, were very nice with me and available. I enjoyed nature, mountains, ocean, forests...it is very diverse and beautiful.
