FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What kind of financial protection do I have?
Atlantica College is registered with the Province of New Brunswick under the Private Occupational Training Act. All students attending a post-secondary education facility in New Brunswick pay a student protection fee as part of their registration to the province. It is like an insurance policy and design to protect students financially and if a New Brunswick Post-Secondary School closes, the Department of Post-Secondary Education finds a suitable replacement for any affected students, so they can complete their education.
Will I be able to work part time?
Yes! Our program is designed so that each student has time to have a part-time job. Some of our current students have part time jobs and have no difficulty juggling their job while studying. International Students must apply for and secure a working visa as well as a study visa if they wish to obtain employment while studying in Canada.
When can I take a tour?
We offer personalized tours all the time. Give us a call or book a tour online to set up a time that works for you.
Can I bring any family members for a tour?
Absolutely! We actually encourage family members to come. Since we are a small school, we want everybody to feel comfortable with the decision to study here, including your family. We encourage more than one visit. Don’t be afraid to ask questions – we are here to answer any and all of them! Book your tour now.
I am from out of town. Can I visit after hours?
Yes, of course. Please contact us to set up a convenient time for you and our instructors.
How does the application procedure work?
Once a completed application is received at the school, (Including the $100 application fee – non-refundable), the application process starts. Applicants are interviewed by the Program Director(s) prior to or after you apply. Applications that are incomplete will not be processed until all information has been received. Applying for a program does not guarantee placement in that program.
What type of references are you looking for?
Former employers, teachers or someone that you know who has professional career designation that can vouch for you. We generally do not accept reference letters from your parents or direct relatives. References should be typed on letterhead and delivered with your application submission in a sealed envelope.
Will I be accepted as a student if I have not completed High School?
If you are looking to apply for Canada or New Brunswick Student Loans, you will need to have a Secondary School Diploma or equivalent. An equivalent would be a GED (General Education Diploma), an entrance exam from another post-secondary school that is recognized by the New Brunswick Department of Post Secondary Education or a recognized mature student test. If you do not wish to apply for a Canada or New Brunswick Student Loan and have other means of paying for the tuition. We do NOT require a Secondary School Diploma or equivalent. However, you must be able to prove that you have the mental capacity to follow the program and not slow down the process and other students. We realize that a lot of talented artists have difficulty with “regular school work” and that they are very capable of being very productive and talented members of the artistic community. Talk to us to find out, if this program is for you.
You may be able to take advantage of scholarships, grants, bursaries and loans.
Speak with our General Manager to see what may be available to you.
