I am in my last year of my program and I am so grateful to have taken my degree in such a beautiful setting, with supportive and highly engaged faculty, a strong student body and friendly/helpful administration. NIC has supported me through bursaries, scholarships and so much encouragement. I am so proud to be an NIC student.
