I was mislead (lied to) by the admissions rep who earned at least part of his salary on commission. He lied and conned me into signing up for a one year course when all that I required for my training was the short 6 month course. This put me in school for twice as long and cost me twice the debt.
Tuition rates were exorbitant and grossly inflated. The school itself was located in an old bank, the staff were unprofessional, and the rep who got me to join was later fired for misleading numerous students into larger courses/loans/debts. My professor was an ex-nurse with no teaching experience who sat gossiping with the girls in my class all day long like cackling hens. Anybody who didn't join in the gossiping, backstabbing or extra-curricular activities was mocked, bullied and treated poorly. The curriculum was very poor and mainly was just reading out of text books and repetition. There were constant issues with the school itself, the staff, paperwork and all kinds of problems - it was a horrible experience.
VCC did not reimburse me, refused to deal with my complaints and issues, and to date I am 20K in debt thanks to this FRAUD of a school whose sole aim it is to make money. The rep rushed me into class by stating they were "starting soon" and that the class was "filling up" and pressured me to make my decision quick. I was naive and ill-informed and rushed and manipulated by various staff into taking courses I didn't need and getting a huge student loan from the government to pay for it.
To date, my "career" has not profited me one bit, I am massively in debt, many people won't hire me once they know where I've graduated, I am told my "qualifications and training" aren't applicable in various jobs and other cities and provinces - and it's been an utter misery.
I've come to find that hundreds (if not thousands) of students across the country have my exact same complaint, and that countless have been conned, lied to and ripped off by this fraudulent organization. It's owned by the "Eminata Group" which has been in the news several times, and all of its owned schools (including Vancouver Career College, CDI, and others) have dozens of pending lawsuits and are being investigated for wrongful and illegal practices.
Peter Chung, the executive chairman came to Canada to set up his business after being driven out of the USA due to his corrupt practices, sued, losing his business and having his assets frozen -- he now does the exact same thing up North that he did down there with no repercussions thus far.
DO NOT GO TO VANCOUVER CAREER COLLEGE ! It is a waste of time, a HUGE waste of money and it will put you in big debt, waste your time and ruin any potential 'career' you are aiming for by association. HUGE CON JOB.
