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 connect...

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.

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 al...

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.

Life changing college for me.

I am not eligible for applying scholarship because my IELTS band is low. But I enjoyed to live in this country.

University of Alberta offers fantastic teaching quality.

Tips: I didn't experience any cultural shift after coming to Canada because in this country Indian population is good. So it will be easy to cope with them. However, there was some cultural differences in terms of cooking and part time work experience. I didn't apply for any internship cause my rank was too low. University of Alberta is one of the best universities for me and I love Canada.

I love the college so much I have learnt so many things and would suggest that you should go there

Tips: This is one of the best college but there is only one problem which is related to Indian food. Except that it is so wonderful and you would get a new experience there you can feel homesick in the beginning but the environment is so friendly that you will feel so good and forget about home after few days.
