Welcome to our website
Thank you for
visiting our website. It is our hope that this site gives you the information
you need to make informed decisions about the exciting educational options we
offer at Aurora College.
This site will
introduce you to our curriculum, which has been tailor-made for the unique
needs of Northerners and the NWT labour market. Our programs draw from the
latest technologies to provide up-to-date training, and we also draw on
traditional knowledge that has informed the rich cultures of the North for centuries.
The result is a rewarding educational experience that prepares you for an
exciting career and enriches your life experience.
The site will also introduce you to our
campuses, community learning centres and research centres. Over the last year we have aligned our
programming into post-secondary schools, with each school chairperson assisting
us to ensure academic quality and integrity for every certificate, diploma and
degree program. Whether you take a program at one of our campuses in Fort Smith,
Inuvik or Yellowknife, or if you participate in a Community Learning Centre
delivery, the standards of academic excellence will be the same
Although we have grown and evolved
with the NWT over our long history, what has not changed is our focus on
students: we are a student-centred institution which puts the hopes and dreams
of our students first. We accomplish this by ensuring that our programs,
services and facilities are geared toward student success. This means we offer
up-to-date programming, and supports for students and their families in state
of the art facilities.
It is our pleasure to serve the people
of the North, and to welcome new students from throughout Canada and the world.
I invite you to use this website to explore Aurora College. We have much to
offer and we hope to see you in our classrooms and shops throughout the NWT.
We hope to welcome you to our family
of graduates in the near future.
President, Aurora College
