Feels like home. Very calm and peaceful
Tips: Super chill and easygoing. Do not get academic misconduct. Satisfied with the course. Not very technical but it's good. Faculty members are understanding and internship placements are good as well. Post-degree job prospects are good too. Tons of immigration options.
Likes (Permanent Immigration): A lot of immigrantion programs in Atlantic canada. Close to 100% success rates. Does not take a long time to get settled here. Great country, peace of mind and quality lifestyle are witnessed. A bit expensive and harsh on the climate but it is manageable provided you have a decent job and can get acclimatized to the cold weather.
Dislikes (Indian Food): Less Indian restaurants but there are plenty of grocery items available. Lots of Indian snacks, frozen dinners etc. are available and giants like Walmart, Atlantic super store, Sobeys etc. No need to pack up a lot of Indian food while coming here. Learn to cook basic food. May be problematic for vegetarians. Food is expensive so budget according.

Value for money and academically oriented.
Tips: I am very satisfied with the university, the facilities and everything are top-notch, they frequently have internships and coop sessions with employers like Irving, RBC etc. Throughout the year, so in terms of that university is good. It's a bit more academically oriented, so studies and course loads could be a bit stressful, please apply for scholarships, the deadline is April end, they give around 1000 CAD to almost every student, so you can save.
Likes (Part time work): Options for on-campus jobs are really limited and are very competitive, but off-campus jobs are relatively easier to find. You just have to grind your way through, the first week after you land here is the most the toughest for you because you are still learning and getting to know about the city, but you have to keep applying online along with doing walk-ins in the stores for jobs.
Dislikes (Indian Food): Food options are really limited if you are from India, there's only 2-3 indian restaurants in the whole city, and are very expensive. We also have tiffin services in the city but they are expensive too, students just tend to cook on their own, so be prepared, learn cooking before you come here, it's a basic survival skill.
