Information for Guidance Counsellors

Choosing a career can be a stressful and tough decision. Students rely on your expertise.

Students want an engaging, high-quality, hands-on education.

Employers need job-ready graduates equipped with the latest skills.

Oulton College meets these challenges. Our personalized approach with students is our biggest strength. Student success is our number one priority.

We want you to have all the information you need to guide your students towards the best choice for their post-secondary education.

Job-Ready Graduates

All our programs have an average of over 90% job placement rate. The Oulton College name is synonymous among employers with job-ready, highly-trained graduates. We offer fast-tracked programs in Business, Health Sciences, Human Services and Information Technology.

Moreover, employers are impressed that students come out of Oulton College with job-ready certificates, such as CPR/First Aid, Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System and other industry recognized certifications. 

Outstanding Faculty

Our Faculty is comprised of seasoned, well-connected professionals dedicated to providing the best possible educational experience. All teaching staff benefit from on-going professional development and educational mentoring and coaching. 

Accreditation

Many of our programs are accredited by provincial and national associations. We are also the first private non-IT college in the Maritime Provinces to obtain university accreditation for its courses. Accreditations can be found on the applicable program pages. 

Hands-On Education

We are passionate advocates of real-life experience and hands-on learning for our students. We believe our approach – a combination of theoretical and applied learning – produces graduates who are productive their first day on the job. On top of our teaching methods in the classroom, we connect students with prospective employers through on-the-job training placements integrated into each program.

Students are trained using modern technology available in the current workplace. Not only do our labs re-create real life experiences and let students practice using the tools and equipment they will need in their chosen field, but computer access at Oulton College is second to none. Computer labs are equipped with all the latest programs and software as well as Wi-Fi. We ensure that every single student has access to a computer during his/her studies.

Admission Requirements

Admission requirements vary by progam and can be found on our individual program pages. Our Admissions Advisors will help guide students through the process, explaining the various requirements for each program.

Application

Students who are ready to apply should look over our Steps to Admission. Admission at Oulton College is different than other post-secondary institutions. We care about each student's success and that means ensuring that their career choice is the right fit for them. We meet each prospective student and get to know them in order to help them choose the right path towards their career goals. Once a program is chosen and requirements are met, we guide them along the application process.

We encourage students to apply early, as our programs do fill up quickly.
