Top College in Canada #2: Humber College
Established in 1967 just like GBC (George Brown College), Humber College is one of the well-respected schools of
higher education in Toronto, Canada. This polytechnic institution, which was established under the helm of then-president Gordon Wragg, was heralded as one of the country’s biggest community college. Currently, it houses 27,500 full-time learners and 56,000 part-time students.
Humber College offers a total of 150 programs through its eight schools: Business, Liberal Arts and Science, Health Sciences, Hospitality, Recreation and Tourism, Creative and Performing Arts, Social and Community Services, Applied Technology and Media Studies and Information Technology.
Throughout its years of educating Canadians and foreigners too, its students and alumni have rated the school at 4.4/5 for over-all experience. This rate is based on their responses regarding the school’s reputation and prestige, education quality and the job offerings the alumni have received after graduation.
Requirements for International Students
Like most Canadian colleges, Humber opens its doors to foreign applicants. Interested students can jumpstart their dreams of studying in Canada first by selecting from any of the degrees and programs offered by Humber.
