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.

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.

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, ...

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.

University of Toronto is the place to be!

Tips: Whatever you do, try to excel in that. Also focus on your fundamentals Science classes like Math and Physics as it helps in more ways than one, even though I'm in CS. People here come from various backgrounds and the admissions committee views applications holistically. They value the amount of effort you've put into whatever your domain is and can find ways of transferring your skillset to match you with what you could potentially be great at.

My journey at the prominent University of Toronto.

Tips: Uoft is the most prestigious university in Canada. Canadians really give you the awe moment when they know you're studying at this university. Some of the courses are of top-notch particularly Data Science courses. Others are okay. You would know how to survive in the industry. Top companies came to the universities to offer internships and projects. That's pretty much everything. The only con is that the fees is much higher than any other university in Canada.

Live every moment and work hard for your academics, at University of Toronto.

Tips: Cultural shift sure, but not that much. In my programme and in the city too I find enough Indians that I feel at home. There are some shifts but in a good way. Like people are quite honest and rule following here than what we SEE in India. They have a vector scholarship, but it can be hard to get. Like only 120 students in my batch got it that too across 5 different universities. From my programme probably only 4 to 6 people got the scholarship. Courses are great, there is a high focus on practi...

Best university in the country and top level education system.

Tips: When I moved to another country, things changed a lot. People, customs, and everything were different from what I knew. It was interesting to learn about this new culture, even though it was sometimes difficult. Eventually, I got used to how things were done there and began to enjoy the special traditions, food, and celebrations. It was a big chance, but it made me see the world in a whole new way and gave me lots of new experiences.

University has a great reputation.

Tips: You have a major cultural shift once you interact with diverse groups of people. I did not avail of any scholarships, but the option to work on campus provides a lot of opportunities to earn money, and hence, expenses are not that huge of an issue. University has a great reputation, and it is essential to take a multi-faceted approach. Try learning as much as you can and focus on utilizing the resources you can get. Don't just study and try getting a job - explore all the options.

Tips: I would say that exams are quite tough and the competition rate is quite high as well as many foreign students opt for this university. You can feel a slight transition in correspondence between culture and society, especially if you are from India. I don't have any idea regarding scholarships as I haven't opted for any. But, I am very much satisfied with my university and this engineering course as well.

Stressful but very worth it

Tips: It is very academically challenging. It's not fun and games and every weekend partying like other universities. Only join if you can study 24/7 and don't get burnt out or depressed easily. Overall, it offers the best quality education in Canada.

Likes (Permanent Immigration): Canada is a super welcoming immigrant country. As it has a labour shortage so after graduation it is not difficult to find a job and convert the student visa into a work visa then finally get permanent residency and citizenship hopefully. A lot of Indians...

Amazing university for Masters

Tips: For me, transition to this new place was not that tough and no cultural shift was experienced. I didn't avail of any scholarship. And things that one should know before coming to a University are that the academics is rigorous, research opportunities are there, campus diversity, strong alumni network. And lastly about the city, the living cost is very high. I am fully satisfied with the university, its course and country is awesome.
