Easy to adjust to in Canada.
Tips: I believe that Canada is the country one can except the least transition from when coming from India. Homely vibes aunties and uncle everywhere, meet and greet going on. Engineering courses are good but I guess now Germany and Dutch are the most sought-after destination for me. Canada is working pretty well, no complaint at all.
Likes (Safety): Constant guideline updation is something that the college does to make students aware of the environment. Do's and Don'ts should be read carefully students don't do this and then complain to the college about bicycle thefts and other problems. Security issues are rarely seen no breaches.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): Co-op internship has not started yet so it can get me hired. College has helped me with getting IT but jobs I don't know about drives. I don't think that it happens in Canada. Campus drives and placements mostly happen in India. In Canada you should know how to apply what you have learned yourself.

Excellent curriculum and teaching practice
Tips: Don't rely on the university way too much, it is not gonna spoon feed you. Academics are good and if any student wants to do research it is fine but for jobs others will be no help. I haven't received any sort of scholarship or allowance till now but I think that there is a scholarship given to 3 meritorious students so study and study! I am satisfied with the college and there was also no cultural shift. Feel like home in Canada.
Likes (Quality of faculty): Faculty is top. I don't complain about faculty. Every lecturer is academically well proficient. Faculty to student ratio is a bit low but quality is what matters. The university does not compromise in terms of academics. Curriculum is also designed differently it is K4 and K5 of Blooms taxonomy so more focus is given to critical thinking and problem solving. For my course situation analysis is very important while answering any question. This is very much different from India.

Good university to be in.
Tips: Don't take up an on-campus accommodation trust me not worth it, live outside but nearby. There are no as such international scholarships but students who pass with over 75% overall grades are awarded with an entry level scholarship of 500$. Professors are all Ph.D. holders and have international publications. The area is beautiful with good scenery and it feels good to be under a cloud blue sky. Tuition fee is also not that much so it makes it a good university to study.
Likes (Internships): Co-op jobs are offered to most of the courses. Internship is based on selection so make sure to meet all the criteria. Comparing it with placements internship opportunities are good for my course also internships are provided. University website is constantly updated so keep a check!
Dislikes (Post study jobs): University doesn't provide much, you graduate then you are on your own. No campus placements as far as I have heard since I'm still studying but the university does help with part-time jobs so yes this is the thing. There should be something for placements as most of the students come to Canada to secure a job.

Cultural hotpot! Explore the beauty of untouched Canada
Tips: An Indian boy in a Canadian house was great. Nice people and experience for a foreign student. I had the opportunity to explore the beautiful Cape Breton, interact with hundreds of locals, and understand the economy and hospitality industry. Overall, thoroughly satisfied with the exposure offered by the Government of Nova Scotia and Cape Breton University.
