Serene surroundings, Home away from home.

Tips: If you love small towns you should choose this place. Everyone knows everyone which sometimes is annoying. There is rarely anything to do. However, it is a beautiful place. Personally, I love big cities as it might give you more exposure but if you want peace and good scenic beauty Kamloops is a beautiful place.

Likes (Safety): Safety depends on the preferred location one stays. According to me, it is safe as I stay in on-campus residence. But if you are mature to take care of yourself you are good. I faced a sa...

I personally like town life that is the reason I chose this college.

Tips: One should be prepared to adapt to everything. You are coming here to become successful. You have to bring tremendous change in your personality and lifestyle to achieve it. The weather is not that bad here as compared to other cities of Canada. Small town-like vibe with friendly neighbours.

Likes (Part time work): I rated Part time job 5 because I got the job within 10 days. Moreover, almost every International student I met in Kamloops has a job so that won't be an issue for anyone who is planning to come to TRU. Min...

Not the best, nor the worst. Beautiful small city, fun-filled university experience.

Tips: TRU isn't a prestigious university, it is however a public university which is comparatively less expensive when compared to others, hence why most people decide to join TRU for the "University" and student life which you might not get in a college. Securing a part-time job may be challenging at first, will have to be patient and give it some time as competition is getting fierce. More and more students are coming to Kamloops with not many new opportunities arising, the same goes with accommodat...

Good Accounting program of Thompson Rivers University

Tips: There are lot of co-op opportunities to look out for. Take part in different clubs and activities. Be active in looking for Post graduation work and start early. The faculty are very knowledgeable and helpful. All in all, I would say it was a very wonderful learning experience.

Likes (Student Life): There are various events for students to take part in as well as many opportunities to get involved with communities. The workload was manageable for me. There are certain events organized by the Indian community on fest...

An amazing academic experience at Thomson River University

Tips: Well, as per my experience, students should prepare themselves for a cultural shift when they are coming to study at Thomson River University. But they will surely experience a supportive enriching and academic experience with some benevolent opportunities for scholarship, personal growth, and community involvement.

A decent university with decent faculty and tons of activities and stuff to do on campus.

Tips: Lots of assignments and time management skills are required. Less rote learning and more understanding and developing social skills by participating in co-curricular activities. It's still a fairly new University and it would be unfair to compare it to the UBCs or the SFUs but TRU is growing and becoming stronger with each passing day.

Likes (Value for money): Compared to colleges and other universities across Canada, it gives you a decent university experience at a reasonable price. You can participate in co-op work te...

Best University a student can ask for MBA.

Tips: University has high standards. One should have effective leadership qualities, and know about curriculum design. There is a professional environment and the best faculties are helping students. There are volunteers to help, and learned faculties on campus surrounded by natural beauty and the finest infrastructure. College is value for money. Special attention is provided to students not performing well.

Peaceful college in small city.

Tips: Since the city is pretty small and not much is happening, some people might not like it here compared to metro cities. But if you looking for a peaceful and healthy place to reside, study and chill with your buddies on a regular basis, this would be the right place and school to join in.

Likes (Value for money): TRU is one of the most popular universities among the international students and has the one best School of Business and Economics in the whole of British Columbia. The tuition is pretty reasonable compared to o...

Not a lot of internship opportunities.

Tips: It is in the interior of BC, the university is gradually growing and making its name in the region. It could get boring if you don’t have a good social circle as the city sleeps from 8-9 pm. Faculty is good if you ask questions and show interest in the discussions.

Likes (Permanent Immigration): Kamloops is a small town with good job opportunities plus living expenses are okay. Being in the interior gives a better chance at getting PR soon. Canada is welcoming new students/immigrants right now and it is a very good opportunity...

Good but not the best. Very less chances for visa refusal.

Tips: It is a good university but not the best. If you have slightly low grades in your graduation and you want to pursue MBA from a public university then this is the right place. The minimum passing grades are 70% for each subject so be prepared for that, although the study pattern is not too hard. Most importantly, choose your instructor wisely. There are ratings, so you can check those before enrolling yourself in a course. The type of instructor matters a lot.

Likes (Safety): If I compare it with my home country,...
