What students are saying about Keyano

"I started studying at Keyano College because of my younger sister who kept saying how cool the place is and how amazing the people are. And she was right. Everyone, from my classmates, to professors and non-teaching staff are friendly and approachable. That said, what I like most about the College is its location. I find Fort McMurray to be the place perfect. No traffic, no pollution, low crime rate, and very close to nature. Though a bit colder in the winter, the people, especially the huge Filipino community will make you warm all winter long."

"I heard about Keyano College online through their website. I looked into their Business Administration program which had always interested me.

The diversity at Keyano has made the transition process of living in a new country much easier. You get to hear about classmates amazing experiences, what they have gone through, and you end up making great friends. Everyone is incredibly welcoming making you feel right at home."

"I applied to Keyano College online after a family member told me about the school and how successful the graduates are. The website has all the instructions on how to apply for admission, it also included tips on how to get a student visa after receiving the letter of acceptance. What I like about Keyano is how diversity is really accepted here. I think it is beautiful to see people from different countries and ethnicities coming together for the purpose of education."
