This is for passionate learners to research and work on building new and awesome things.

Tips: In terms of pursuing a Masters, University of Waterloo has a very good research focused programme where you can dedicate your time to research. This was one of the biggest factors in my choosing to go to UWaterloo over other US colleges I had fully funded offers from. Talking of which you should have a look at the scholarships you can avail for Masters, at Waterloo, at least for CS programs, you can find a scholarship that can cover your tuition and expenses and leave you with a bit extra to sav...

University of Waterloo: Balancing academics, culture, and opportunity!

Tips: Before joining UWaterloo, prospective students should be prepared for a rigorous academic environment and consider the opportunities that the wonderfully built co-op programme provides for gaining real-world experience. Transitioning here, I did experience some cultural shifts, but the diverse campus community made it easier for me to adapt. I was fortunate to secure scholarships, primarily based on academic merit, which somewhat ease my financial burden. Overall, I'm quite satisfied with my uni...

It's a good university but keep expectations in order

Tips: Be ready for studying hard and having no social life. The faculty is good but the workload is high. Work hard and it shouldn't be a problem. Internships are fine but competition is tough so be ready to apply externally. The fees are on the higher end for international students.

Multiple work opportunities are present at University of Waterloo

Tips: Try to do as many co-ops as you can. The university offers great work opportunities. Each department offers specific scholarships, so do apply within the deadline. My course is extremely competitive, but highly rewarding in the later stages. UofWaterloo teaches you to manage various aspects of life together.

Likes (Indian Food): Waterloo is a student-led community, majority population belongs to either undergrads or graduate students. Hence, the university organizations like WUSA, GSA, IPC organize events throughout...

Great learning environment

Tips: Moving to a different country is a process, appreciate and give process some time, you will do well. There are a lot of scholarships, bursaries and part-time jobs available on campus, which will help with monthly expenses and sometimes even managing fees.

Likes (Student Life): Graduate House organizes events regularly that will help you indulge socially. There are also several extracurricular clubs that one can join. Graduate House also organizes a cool Diwali night each year, so people don't get homesick. Moreover, ...

University of Waterloo is a great place to study

Tips: The University of Waterloo is indeed a great place to study for someone passionate about expanding their knowledge as well as network. Based on my experience and things I heard, there are trends to zero chances of getting a scholarship for the MEng ECE programme. The programme is a little bit expensive but if you are privileged enough to spend that much without having financial pressure then it is worth it. If you are enthusiastic about the field you are pursuing and love learning new things, th...

Great place for modern technology.

Tips: Before coming here students must be prepared for which courses they are going to take. A prior work experience might help in getting a better internship. Connect with professors well. Connect with people of similar interests for studies. Look for RA's and use the job portals effectively.

The wonderful opportunities resulting from the grind at UWaterloo (CS/Math + Engineering Only)

Tips: Scholarships are rare to come by, even if you get a scholarship, it is unlikely to cover much of the overall expenses. You might get consumed by the competitive environment and therefore inevitably become part of a rat race. Don't do that, you need to know what you care about and focus on those objectives and fulfil your own goals. UWaterloo is a grind, but it is worth it, and the main thing is you feel good about yourself at the end of the day, and finding that fulfilment from within yourself i...
