Awesome Dalhousie Journey
Tips: There are no cultural shifts after coming here. Also, it depends on your academics to avail scholarships as you should be attaining top grades in all courses to avail them. And I am greatly satisfied with the university and country except for the harsh winter climates from December to March-April.
Likes (Public transportation): Transportation is awesome as public transportation is free when you are a student and we can have great accessibility around downtown. All parts of the city are well connected with metro buses including the airport. Also, the university has great accessibility to the downtown and there will be frequent buses and a number of stops to avail public transportation.
Dislikes (Part time work): On campus Part time jobs are usually hard to get. Off campus part time jobs are relatively easy to find. MACS course is a bit exhaustive course, so you have to get your basics ready before you join the course as you have to find the right balance between part time and course exams and assignments. The average pay at the moment would be 14-15 CAD.

University is one of the best in Canada
Tips: The education is world class and cutting edge. Very different from India and required a lot of self-studying and hard work. Be ready to put in a lot of hours and also discipline will go a long way. Make sure to learn skills rather than getting grades, it will help you a lot in the long run.
Likes (Public transportation): Cheap and safe, there is no metro or trains only transportation available are buses but it’s extensive. The buses run till late and cover most of the city. The service is really good and the buses are free for students as you pay for them in your fees.
Dislikes (Value for money): The course provides a lot of opportunities and demand is high for IT professionals in Halifax. Most of students get a job within 6 months depending on the intensity of the job search, skills and passion for the industry but the starting pay is good as compared to money spent on education.

Tough academics, average lifestyle and very expensive tuition fee
Tips: Make sure what is the tuition fees and what you require to complete the program. No scholarships for international students are given. The college has good campus area, its within city and accessible. Not a lot of on campus jobs. Some courses have 5 days classes so it can be difficult for part time work.
Likes (Quality of faculty): Not all professors are that great. Some have extensive knowledge and some do not. Subjects are not regularly taught by the same professors. Professors try different teaching approaches which sometimes create confusion.
Dislikes (Indian Food): Groceries are not available everywhere and even if they are, its very costly. Restaurants are costly for students and food is not authentic. Tiffin services are available now but still costly for students. There are some local grocery stores which imports some food from country of origin but they are costly too when compared with the minimum wage given here.
