Hardworking and friendly folks
Tips: UofT provides you with tremendous opportunity to boost your career. Alumni are friendly. You can participate in a plethora of activities with students from other departments. There are not many scholarships available at Master's level but a lot for Ph.D.
Likes (Student Life): UofT campus is always buzzing with activities and events. It is easy to find a peer group and have some fun while learning new skills. During orientation you will get an opportunity to enroll in a vast array of clubs. There is always free food at some or the other event on the campus where you can make friends.
Dislikes (Part time work): All upcoming students get an option to apply for Teaching Assistantship roles. Moreover, students can connect with faculty members for Research Assistantship roles. Alumni is very friendly, you can reach out to them for part time roles in the industry.

Tough journey but worth paying
Tips: Cultural shift is there after moving to this country. I was offered a full scholarship in MASc programme. Courses are of high quality. Sometimes, it's very stressful for students from tier 2 or tier 3 Indian universities. But less job opportunities as compared to US. PR immigration is easy here.

It is a good university.
Tips: It's a good university but if you are more research-oriented then go for US universities. The weather is not great in Canada. If you are person who loves sunlight or going out then say goodbye to both of them. The campus is scattered and in the middle of the city.
Likes (Permanent Immigration): Good chance of getting a PR if you have enough points. You also get a Post Graduation Work Permit once you graduate. It is an open work permit and the duration depends on the length of the programme.
Dislikes (Value for money): It's okay but not a great programme. They charge too much for the courses they are offering. It is good that there is an internship at the end of the programme otherwise it would have taken a lot of time to repay the loan.

Diverse campus with lots to learn.
Tips: One good thing about UOFT is that it is very diverse and people always accept and respect others. You don't have to change yourself to fit in. I am a permanent resident. I didn't apply for scholarships. Work is stressful. But overall social life is fun.
Likes (Indian Food): Lots of Indian food is available. Restaurants are very good. Pricing depends on the ambience. I have a meal plan with the university, so I don't cook. I live in downtown, so you get everything here. Indian restaurants have similar food to India, and there is one located in every locality.
Dislikes (Safety): This is the main campus located in downtown, Toronto. The other two are subsidiaries. - downtown is often surrounded by homeless people, often drug addicts. It gets sketchy during the night. My recommendation is to always travel in groups, especially during the night.

Academic fountain of deep learning in the world
Tips: The university is known for its academic standards therefore the quality of courses is good and so are the marking criteria of the professors who teach the courses. The expectation from Masters students is to work on par with Ph.D. scholars and perform better since this degree usually prepares you for pursuing a Ph.D. degree in future.
Likes (Indian Food): Toronto is a vibrant city with cosmopolitan culture and food of every kind is available in the city and also this university. I as an Indian and a hard-core vegetarian. I was able to enjoy the street food and also there are many Indian veg cuisine restaurants present as well. I never found it difficult to find food.
Dislikes (Student Life): Everyone is engaged in their own activities due to course loads with less activities which students can indulge in together.
