With such flexibility in scheduling, our students are free to remain employed while completing the program of their choice, gaining both professional and educational experience.
All of our classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art learning facilities to enhance each student’s experience and ensure an optimal learning environment. We strive to guarantee accessibility for all applicants, therefore we have set affordable fees and convenient payment plans corresponding to our aim of providing education to as many students as possible.
KIC is affiliated with various international universities including institutions in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia where our students can transfer to continue their higher education after their time with us.
KIC is devoted to maintaining life-long relationships with students during their time at the College and after they graduate. From the time student enrolls until the day he or she graduates, he or she will have access to our dedicated Student Relations team who will offer support through any challenges and celebrate our student’s successes.
KIC works closely with employers both locally and internationally to assist our graduates in discovering new job opportunities, as well as ensuring that their transition into the professional world goes as smoothly as possible.
