Complaint Review: Vancouver Career College
Vancouver Career College200- 1111 Melville Street Vancouver, British Columbia United States of America
Vancouver Career College VCC, Eminata Group I was conned and forced into debt by VCC and Eminata Group Vancouver, British Columbia
*General Comment: Only positive things to say
*REBUTTAL Individual responds: I love Vancouver Career College
*Consumer Comment: A matter of opinion
I got put into 20k of debt for nothing. I got a lousy education at a school which was constantly having problems, had a rotating staff (my rep was later fired for conning numerous students), and completely unprofessional teachers. My teacher gossiped with students about sex, dieting, celebrity news and all kinds of matters unrelated to school. She even had students house-sitting for her, changed grades on a whim, helped students cheat on tests by essentially giving the answers beforehand, and raised her favourite student's GPA by 2 points. Any time anyone complained or had issues they were bullied, back-stabbed and made to feel unwelcome and like an outcast. There was no help at all from other staff who were rude and couldn't be bothered once the papers were signed and your money was paid.
I had a horrible experience there and I've come to find that hundreds or more students have been ripped off in the same way (forced into longer courses, lied to, conned into bigger loans and paying more to the school) and numerous lawsuits have been launched. The school is a massive joke and once out in the real work world many employers won't hire you after learning where you graduated from (an unprofessional, ridiculous, rip-off "for profit" school that nobody takes seriously). If you travel elsewhere you'll find you're not properly qualified for anything and you're 10-20k "diploma" is almost worthless.
DO NOT ATTEND VANCOUVER CAREER COLLEGE - it is a huge waste of time and money. My complaints have been echoed by hundreds more students now in the same situation.
Vancouver Career College is owned by Eminata Group, which owns half a dozen other "for profit" colleges which all have the same problems and are being investigated. They've also had many lawsuits launched against them. It's run by Peter Chung, the executive chairman who was run out of the US after defrauding students there, having his school closed down, and violating thousands of conduct codes and laws.
