Exciting and fun environment to deepen your knowledge and build relationships.
Tips: Be open to any challenges to face here, sometimes you will have to manage all your expenses and food, and at times you might even feel lonely. But during these hard times, you will have to go through this with the utmost sheer will. Come prepared when coming for international studies, such as the accommodation, roommates, and other documents needed here so that you won't get stranded when the time comes. Through social platforms like LinkedIn and WhatsApp contact persons who already went there for additional information or if possible maybe related to your programme as well.
Likes (Value for money): The overall course structure has many practical components such as projects and assignments relevant to the industry standards which benefits students who are applying for jobs. The part-time available positions are high in number so at least the expenses will be covered. Even though the job market is a little low now due to the recession, many postings and opportunities are coming our way.
Dislikes (Safety): There is always police surveillance throughout the area. There are few specific streets to avoid as they are filled with people who are on not trustworthy. But overall at least where I am living the safety measures taken by the government are actually good.

One must choose this university.
Tips: Should be fully prepared to be independent. Accept that leaving out of home is gonna be challenging. Yet it's gonna be alright. Prepare for the course as much as possible before even it starts. Find some friends who are studying the same course. Build your connections. Do your own research.
Likes (Part time work): I was able to find part jobs within 14 days of landing. Build a Canadian-style resume. Apply for part jobs on online website like LinkedIn, Glassdoor, indeed etc. I even went to each store in malls and handed out my resume personally to the managers.
Dislikes (Indian Food): I prefer to eat home-cooked meals as outside foods are very expensive and have very less vegetarian options. But outside food here is clean and has a lot of Indian restaurants. For me, food was never a problem. I could easily manage cooking although I never cooked my own food in India.

University of Ottawa is better for Masters
Tips: Before enrolling in university, students should conduct thorough research, focus on the available courses in their field of interest, co-op prospects, and TA positions. I was fortunate to secure a $500 allowance. Adjusting to climate change might present some challenges, but with proper preparation and resources, it can be manageable.
Likes (Part time work): There are many part-time opportunities on and off campus which offers flexibility and easy balance work with studies. Average pay is 16.55/hr and it's even higher around 18-21$/hr for security and TA positions. Coming to the on-campus jobs there are many administrative and office jobs for students. For off-campus they can work in retail, walmart/grocery stores and the food industry too.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): I'm not sure about the companies that sponsor visas but there are many opportunities for IT people, especially in networking and development fields. For core, there are opportunities in embedded systems. As I said earlier the jobs for freshers would be more in networking, embedded etc. The salaries range from 70k-100k (CAD). If one is developed and experienced, the salary can be more than that.

PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Well organized and world’s largest bilingual university
Tips: It is a bit tough in the starting phase as you will face homesickness. The best advice I can give is to study before you come to study as the education level is well advanced. There are no scholarships for international students that you can get. I am satisfied with my coursework and university programme.
Likes (Public transportation): Well, the transportation service is actually good. There are options of buses and metro which are connected to even corners of cities. The timing interval between buses is also max. 20 minutes which will help you to reach your desired destination. It is very good.
Dislikes (Internships): In Master programme there are no internships. So there is nothing you can do to save your fees but if you perform well there are chances that you can avail internship. In Bachelor you can get it but not in the master programme. The University website has described everything.

My university is fun, challenging and provides opportunities
Tips: You should come here prepared as the education style is completely different and just passing the exam is not going to get decent grades in your course. You need to focus on projects, assignments as in India we take all these lightly and tend to complete them just before the submission date, that’s not going to work here as the assignments are challenging and require in-depth knowledge of the course that you are pursuing.
Likes (Post study jobs): The market here is full of opportunities and one has to grab them by keep on applying for jobs. My seniors also gave me positive feedback about the same. Also, the Canadian job market requires you to network with the people that are already in the market so it’s important to connect to them through LinkedIn.
Dislikes (Internships): My course doesn’t have a CO-OP so it will be a little hard to get an internship. But nevertheless one can get internship if he applies through company portal and if he manages to get an internship the university does back that job offer with a support letter which helps in getting visa to start working as full time in Canada.
