MSc in Computing Science - Batch of 2023
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
My experiences in the University of Alberta was good.
Tips: The university is in Edmonton. Weather goes to -30 degrees in winter. Cannabis is legal here, so you will see many addicts on the street. Many homeless people near the downtown area. So avoid downtown. I am not that satisfied with my degree. I wanted to switch from software development to machine learning developed with this degree but I don't think I can do it.
Likes (Public transportation): Rate 5 due to robust public transportation. Campus seamlessly connected to the city via buses and Metro. The whole city is well connected. Transportation cost is included in the tuition fees. No need to pay extra for transportation. Uber is easily available if you want to go to a remote destination.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): Rated 3 on post-study jobs due to limited visa sponsorship. Unsure about specific companies. Generally, job roles vary, but the average salary in Edmonton post-studies is around 50k. I got a job through my professor, got lucky with this one. But do not expect the same thing to happen with every student.

Enriching journey at University of Alberta.
Tips: Arriving here marked the beginning of an intriguing chapter. The cultural shift tough at times perplexing unfolded into a tapestry of new perspectives and experiences. Graced by a scholarship to academic achievements, it is not just a financial aid but a recognition that fuels my academic journey. My contentment with the university, the enriching course and the country is akin to finding harmony in this vibrant symphony of education and cultural exploration.
Likes (Permanent Immigration): The chances of PR in Canada seem promising and I genuinely aspire to make it my permanent home. I appreciate the country's different cultures opportunities and quality of life, making it an ideal place for long-term settlement. The desire for PR with my positive experiences and aspirations for the future in this welcoming and vibrant nation.
Dislikes (Public transportation): The city from the campus is easy as there are frequent bus services. The bus stops are conveniently located, making it hassle-free for students to access public transportation. Buses are a popular mode of travel and are known for being affordable, which is great for us on a low budget. The simple city of the bus system in Canada widespread availability makes it a convenient option for exploring the city and commuting to various places.

BS in Computing Science - Batch of 2024
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
University of Alberta focuses on excellence
Tips: When students move abroad for their academics then they should know what type of struggle they can face in a foreign country. Because there is a significant change in culture so be fully prepared for doing self-work, and cooking because you have to cook your own food. The university is academically excellent and the teaching style is different.
Likes (Value for money): University of Alberta is one of the most highly ranked universities in Canada. And their teaching method, teaching quality is best for me and also for all the other students. I chose computer science course in BS and I am satisfied, I think the course is value for money because I learned lots of things and gained practical knowledge.
Dislikes (Part time work): Now all the scenarios are totally changed because all over the world most students move to Canada that's why competition increased. And if you want part time job then you will have to do hard work to find any part-time job. If you have the skill to do jobs on campus then you should apply as soon as possible. When I did part time along with studying I could easily manage my time.

My journey here was amazing and exposure at University of Alberta is great.
Tips: Definitely there is a cultural shift. It is more about individuals here. Moreover, received a fund of around 21000 CAD/year, which covers my course fees, accommodation, and my living accommodation. This fund is part of my scholarship where the course fee is around 11k/year. CAD and for me the accommodation cost is around 580 CAD. I was very much satisfied with my university. One thing more is that I also received a one-time scholarship of 5000 CAD at the beginning of my programme.

They gave me opportunity.
Tips: Canada is foreigner country. So obviously there are many culture difference. But I love the culture here. I applied for scholarship before the starting of the college and they approved my scholarship. I get $10000 scholarship. All the process details available on the university website. I am satisfied with the University of Alberta and Canada.
Likes (Safety): Safety is the first priority of University of Alberta for students. Campus security team available 24/7 to maintain safe and secure campus environment. University of Alberta provide safety and security programme. Security patrol the campus and respond in emergency.
Dislikes (Indian Food): There are many food option available in Edmonton but the thing is foods are very expensive. Our area have different types of foods like Italian, Chinese, Indian, Mexican etc. If you are international student and doing part time job then the food is expensive for you. I prefer eating from home and cooking by myself, because it is very cheap.
