Just last month my friend informed me that his son is going to study abroad at Fanshawe College in Canada. My curiosity was piqued, so I looked up the details of this college and was pleasantly surprised to know that this community college is a popular one for international students. The programs offered at Fanshawe College include those in the disciplines of technology, business management, hospitality, animation, film-making, healthcare, etc. Scholarships are offered based on various parameters, such as your skills, community work if any, and, naturally, the Grade Point Average (GPA).

Why Fanshawe College is popular: Although the college ranking in the QS World Ranking may not be anything that spectacular (#1337 in 2022), nevertheless its various programs are much sought after. In addition to degree, diploma, and certificate programs, you can also enroll in apprenticeship programs and those that give you skills in various trades such as carpentry, agricultural equipment, automobiles, etc.

One of the primary reasons for the popularity of Fanshawe College is its affordable fees which include a health insurance plan, spectacular campus infrastructure, and some courses that even allow you to work alongside studying. Best of all, a really good number of alumni are able to get employment within a few months of successfully completing their program. No, they don't have any direct campus placement, but they do offer support through career services. That is, you can attend career guidance workshops, seek consulting and mentoring for finding a job and preparing for interviews, etc.

Earlier I had mentioned a spectacular campus, and I don't mean only in the photogenic sense due to the splendid buildings and beautiful gardens. The Fanshawe College campus in Ontario is wholly self-sufficient, fulfilling every requirement that a student would need. In addition to on-campus accommodation, there are retail stores and cafeterias. Restaurants are aplenty, offering a wide range of global cuisines. There are also sports and recreational facilities, a gym, a medical centre and counselling services.

For Fanshawe College Ontario student accommodation on campus, you can opt for a furnished air-conditioned room (it also has a heater) that is shared between four students in the apartment-style building. The other option is a unit in the townhouse-style residence that is shared between six students. Laundry services, as well as water and electricity bills, are covered so you don't have to pay for these. What you do have to pay for is the meal plan. In case you choose not to stay on campus and would prefer to stay elsewhere, you will get assistance with locating a rental, which is all the easier due to the collaboration with the Canada Homestay network.

An interesting fact- Fanshawe is derived from the words 'fane' and 'shaws, which mean "temple in the woods". It seems this name was considered apt for the college since it is a hub of learning within the city of London, Ontario which is locally known as the Forest City.
