Ashbury College reviews

Polina S.

My daughter has been studying in Canada for several years now, she is completing the high school program and is preparing for the university (either in Canada or the US, and there and there have found good options).

Why did you choose Canada? Because it is a beautiful, developed, civilized and beautiful country. Not as expensive as studying in the US or in England, and at the same time quality is not worse - many prestigious schools whose diploma is highly respected. Far, yes, I often do not visit my daughter, but we will definitely go to the graduation.

Why Ashbury College ? As she said, the school is prestigious, one of the best in the country. Plus they teach two languages ​​(English + French), which is convenient for the future. They have a program for high school students IB (and so called - international baccalaureate): it's something like a unified international course of preparation for the university. Having passed IB, you can go to any country and any university at all, and you will be accepted - there will be no need to translate any certificates, count points and confirm academic performance, etc., which of course is most convenient. Well, there is a school in Ottawa, one of the largest and most developed cities in the country: we somehow did not aspire to the countryside (although I know that many in the same England like schools far away, so that the campus is bigger and the city does not distract) and considered schools in good big cities. Cities are a civilization, so let the child immediately get used to the peculiarities of the country - and in the big cities it is most vividly expressed.

Why Smas? Polite and competent managers (we were led by Egor), there is no commission for enrollment, many employees themselves studied / study abroad, prices are not above the average + many useful additional functions (such as translation of documents). We liked it somehow from the first visit, a couple more agencies were visited for pro forma. and returned to Smaps. We are satisfied with the quality of the work done and we can advise the company to others. Moreover, in such a complex, expensive and long-running business - sending a child for a long time abroad to study - it's not a joke - it's always nice to have professional help, qualified not to worry about trifles.
