Top Five Reasons to Start at National Academy in January 2017!

January 17, 2017

NAHB College Graduation

There’s no better time to think clearly, focus on new resolutions and open up the door to a new start than January 2017.  Colleges across Ontario embrace students looking to start school in January and National Academy has always offered a large variety of healthcare and business programs every January.  Students are encouraged to take advantage of this novel opportunity as their programs and courses will kick off the start of this exciting New Year.

A January start date is a popular choice for students who want their college education to fit in with their existing lives and are not looking to be tied down to traditional college enrollment schedules. The following top five reasons for starting college in January could make sense for you:

1. 2017: New Year, New Career

There is no better time to make a fresh start than the beginning of a new year.  New patterns kick in and old beliefs can be left behind.  Visions for the future are often clearest in January since there has been time over the holidays to take a look at where you are and where you would like to be.

2. Financial Opportunities

If you have been considering a January start date to begin your National Academy program, starting at the beginning of the New Year is often a wise move, particularly if you have financial considerations.  Making that start in January allows prospective students to apply early in the year for financial loans if they need them and to clear their minds, create clear budgets for the year ahead and focus only on moving forward with their education and future careers.

3. More Focus on YOU

The number of students who start at National Academy in January is significantly lower than the amount of students starting in September.  This typically means less chaos on your first day and the ability for new students to become adjusted to their new routines faster.  Many students have begun leading the way and demanding that their lifestyles be taken into consideration by various college institutions; thus resulting with colleges like National Academy responding with staggered start dates for many programs throughout the year.

4. Benefits of Flexibility

More and more students are recognizing the benefits of flexibility when it comes to choosing the right course for them.  Staggered start dates at National Academy has opened up an array of scheduling opportunities that has been able to help students succeed in achieving their education and career goals. This flexibility has made it easier for students to plan for their futures with less waiting time.

5. Motivation is High

Motivation can be a challenging at the end of the year, when the weather starts to get colder and there are more incentives to stay indoors. The natural tendency for individuals during the colder weather is to slow down, rest and rejuvenate. January brings the promise of spring coming soon and often leads to increased energy levels and motivation to make changes or start in a new direction.

If January 2017 sounds like the perfect opportunity for you to earn your college education in less than a year, be sure to contact one of our National Academy Admissions Coordinators today and be on your way!
