This week is a time for celebration for the many Douglas College students who will be walking across the stage as part of the Winter graduation ceremonies.

Diploma in Music
“I am delighted to say that all my teachers were well prepared, and their passion for teaching enhanced my enthusiasm for learning and helped me excel in everything I was doing. Also, I was surrounded by friendly colleagues who really helped minimize the stress of studying.”
“I honestly did not know much about Douglas College, but after discussing my educational goals with my health-care manager, I received some great advice. He told me that Douglas College had the best Psychiatric Nursing Program in B.C.. After doing some research, I agreed. Douglas offered a four-year degree program, an excellent range of psychiatric courses and small class sizes.”
Bachelor of Business Administration – Financial Services
“One of the highlights during my time at Douglas was meeting a lot of people from different countries and backgrounds and learning something new and interesting from each one of them; forming what I’m sure are going to be life-long friendships; and being a part of many exciting, challenging and educational school projects.”
