I feel good in this university. I got 8 months internship also I learned many skills from my field.
Tips: I am fully satisfied with this university. Because I learned many skills in my field. Moreover university provide us free laptop, I-pad, and calculator for 1-2 days. Which is a good thing for international students. Also, I like overall all the facilities provided by the university such as Moodle to get subject details.
Likes (Student Life): I am spending more than 6-7 hours a day in the university. I like to meet my friends and make new connections. People potatoes provide us free food that I like most. GSA are 2 community for students who organise many events for getting jobs, internships, reviewing resumes and many more events.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): I will definitely take PR in this country. Here it is not easy to get PR in Quebec. For that reason, I started to learn French language to get province PR. In other provinces we need more points to get PR eg.550 plus. I have work experience in India so it's easy to get PR.

Tips to surviving in a French province.
Tips: Quebec is a French speaking province. It would be beneficial from the viewpoint of both a temporary resident and getting a permanent residency to at least learn b1 level French before coming here. However, there are government-affiliated classes here too.
Likes (Part time work): Being a downtown campus there are tons of places offering part-time work and getting around the city by public transport is pretty easy and cheap(only $58 for a monthly pass and it works for the bus and metro) making it easier to look for jobs a bit away from downtown too.
Dislikes (Indian Food): There are a few Indian restaurants around the neighbourhood since it is a downtown campus. However, among vegetarian options, they offer very few choices. I usually prefer to cook my own meals at home. There are several Indian grocery stores so it is easy to get veggies and masalas.

Montreal Insights: Learn French. Overall good student experience.
Tips: Before joining Concordia students should be aware of the language preference in QC. Here French is mandatory. On arriving, I experienced a cultural shift due to the prevalence of French in daily life. I did not secure any scholarship because the scholarship is available only for researchers and Ph.D. candidates.
Likes (Safety): Throughout Canada, Montreal is one of the safest places for immigrants. People are generally polite and friendly. The police force is really good if you know French, they are always patrolling the area near the downtown. This place is ideal if you have the basics of French and if you are willing to learn French.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): Montreal, particularly QC, has its challenges for permanent settlement. French proficiency is crucial for obtaining PR and the region has notable issues like inflation, housing crises and high tax labs which can impact one's financial outlook. Consider these factors while you select this particular province for higher education.
