Overall it is a good experience to study in University Canada West
Tips: I would say that one student should understand the requirements of the subject which students have chosen. Because there is a lot of difference in the structure of the study. Please pay close attention to the assignment for eg plagiarism APA etc. For scholarships, students have to maintain 72% or 3 CGPA grades in order to be eligible.
Dislikes (Internships): I have not heard of any internship programs at the university. I got to know from my seniors that only selected students get the chance for internships. Only those who have outstanding scores throughout the course.

One of the best reputed colleges in British Columbia.
Tips: The college has a very good curriculum. They are very focused on what the students need after completing their Masters. Anyone new joining the college should focus on selecting the correct professor as this is very important. They have very good scholarship programs which help students.
Likes (Indian Food): We have many Indian food options in Vancouver city. There are many Indian stores where we can get Indian groceries easily. Many are worried about the utensils, but we get all Indian utensils here so people should not be worried about it. It's available very easily.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): There are a lot of opportunities in Canada but they all require a lot of references, which is difficult to find. Another difficulty is that we come from different countries so our resumes are not as per Canadian job market requirements. Lastly, in consideration of our PR, they do not consider our past experiences.

UCW: Home away from home experience
Tips: The placement rate at UCW is quite high, I've had the experience to meet and greet with some of the UCW alumni of Indian origin at the time of our orientation, some of whom were placed with PwC and Amazon and for them, the university couldn't have been any better. Be it the quality of faculty or the rapport of university in the Canadian corporate, the university has it all. And how can one forget about academic scholarships, there are plentiful of them! You can even get a single entrant award if you can prove to be good. Also, the Indian community here is very welcoming and Indian festivals are celebrated with joy and fervor. It'll be a home away from home experience for you!

My university is very good and the professors are also great and helpful.
Tips: The fee is a little bit higher compared to other colleges. But the university is very good and the environment is very friendly. There are many Indians who are studying at this university. Moreover, it is famous for MBA courses. There are three main buildings on the university campus.
Likes (Part time work): There are many people from different parts of the world. The environment is friendly. The professors are very good and understanding. The majority of students in classes are Indians. Every semester many new students come to study at this university.
