Hear from past students

I'm Gold, I've been in the Yukon and at Yukon College (now YukonU) for two years

"The college is my second home because I'm there all of the time, due to my heavy course load. The college is a place you would love; it has very nice and friendly instructors, small class sizes, you can get help anytime with some of your unanswered questions, and they help you choose the right courses to prepare you for your future. It's amazing at Yukon College and I'm very proud to be a part of it."

- Gold Ikeji, Nigeria

People here are really nice and friendly

"Also the class size is smaller than other colleges (now YukonU), so students and instructors can be really close to each other. Yukon College (now YukonU) is a PERFECT place for me to improve my English and have new experiences. If you are looking for place to study, just come to Yukon College without hesitating! You'll have fun."
