I am very happy that I got placed in Public University of Canada.
Tips: When I moved here, I faced a cultural shift but in good way. I learnt many things from students of different regions. There are lots of opportunities for scholarships. And my academic is 4/4 gpa, so I got it. Just maintaining the GPA will help in getting scholarships. Overall, I am totally satisfied with my University.

Value for money where students must be independent
Tips: One must be ready to take the initiative, look for opportunities, and network on their own to get the maximum benefits of studying at the university. There are activities happening all around the campus and one must stay updated on them by checking university campus groups and uregina mail. Same goes for internships and job opportunities either through campus placepro or through campus job fairs.
Likes (Value for money): The fee for CS comes down to around 3500 CAD per semester which is very economical as compared to all other universities in Canada. The campus has all the latest facilities and access expected from a modern university. The value for money is excellent here.
Dislikes (Quality of faculty): The quality of professors is a mixed bag to say the least. Some of the professors prepare their own course structure and assignments and try to innovate ways to educate with the latest tech curriculum relevant to the industry. However, there are others in the CS faculty who reuse content from other universities and care more about attendance than learning.

The top 2 best University choices for an international student in Saskatchewan.
Tips: I am more open-minded after these 2 years here, which is due to the fact that I live among people who come from different backgrounds and have varying perspectives on everyday matters. However, I believe a person must have self-discipline and maturity otherwise they will get carried away in this culture. I received a 3k CAD international entrance scholarship because of my good scores in IELTS and 12th Grade.

PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Complete waste of money.
Tips: My advice to you is that do not join this university if possible. They raise the fees by 2.5% every year and the standard of university isn't high. The professors are not good in most of the classes. You'll feel like it is not worth studying at all if you take any class with them.
Likes (Indian Food): With the increase in Indian and Asian population in the city, there are a lot of options for both Indian and Asian food here. In mostly every section of the city, you'll find some Indian restaurant of good quality. Though you'll have to drive around a bit but you'll find it in no time.
Dislikes (Safety): It is not the safest place at all. With a lot of indigenous people living in the city, it has become really difficult for brown skin people like us to live. They are not threat to us mostly but there are a lot of cases of theft and attacks on people, and the victims are mostly international people. Indigenous people are accused of doing it most of the times.

Fantastic learning experience!
Tips: If students want to join this college then they must go through the college website and read each and every section very carefully, like their fee structure, on the job placements, student life, internships and post course job opportunities, etc.
Likes (Part time work): In my opinion, job opportunities during the whole course were very high. Those who are willing to work can work without any hurdle. I myself did a part time job while studying. So, I am very much sure that anyone can get a job very easily if he/she wants one.
Dislikes (Value for money): In my opinion, this college is charging quite high money. If the fee structure is less then it will become a fantastic college. I hope if the college charges lesser amount then it will definitely help the students who have average family background.
