University of Windsor is academically oriented and great for international students.
Tips: I opted to stay off campus, so the people whom I stay with are from my community, whereas I have made many friends at the University from different parts of the world which has made me aware of their different cultures and lifestyles. The course that I opted for was not thesis-based, scholarships are only available for a thesis-based course. The amount of scholarship depends on the student mentor under whom he/she would be completing his/her thesis. Overall, I have had a good experience at the University. I have learned many things over here that have helped me grow academically.
Likes (Safety): Windsor is a small city, the safety of a person is always in his hands. There are many good services provided by the university campus, one of them is a mobile application that has the option to get your location traced by security personnel till you reach your home. There are regular police patrolling at night in sensitive areas. By God's grace, I have never faced any such bad experience to date. But I would personally recommend not to travel in the city at night because there are many crackheads or homeless people who might rob you or charm you.
Dislikes (Part time work): The availability of on-campus jobs depends on when you apply, they are there for sure but you have to apply for them on time to get them. Whereas, off-campus opportunities are also available but it takes time to find a suitable part-time job. As of now, due to the bad job market, there are fewer opportunities compared to the time before. The management of part-time and academics goes as per the student, the person has to prioritize the more important thing. Some students can manage it well but some find it difficult. Mostly, the jobs offer you a minimum hourly wage of 16.5$, whereas there are some other jobs which may cost 1-2 $ more than the minimum wage.

Faculty members are not good. Lack of good infrastructure.
Tips: The courses lack specialization so that is not good for future. Wrote learning concept is highly promoted here which is a turn-off for me. The course content is in contrast to what is in demand in the industry. Lack of options for subject selection.
Likes (Public transportation): University is well connected with the city and is located near the city center. Proximity to the city center allows you to commute anywhere with ease. It allows undisrupted commute to anywhere across the city. Majority of the Indian stores fall along the main bus route.
Dislikes (Value for money): Faculty members are not good. Lack of specialisation in any subject. Wrote learn promoted. Subjects don't relate to each other and a very shallow knowledge of the topics. Some mainstream subject teachers can't deliver lectures properly due to lack of comprehension in English. This programme runs in a makeshift building near the city center which was apparently a cinema hall before. Due to lack of communication with the on campus students, there is no international exposure and the crowd is 99% Indian (Gujarat). Lack of infrastructure which is highly disproportionate to the number of students joining in each intake.

Good for undergrad courses.
Tips: The university is really good, you get to learn more provided you take good courses in each semester. The passing grade is 70% so you have to study for that through which you learn a lot. Scholarships are available for a thesis-based course. I didn’t get any scholarship because my program was course-based. I liked the course, and the city is a bit on the outskirts and doesn’t have much to do, so it's perfect for students. As they don't get involved with any distractions.
Likes (Permanent Immigration): From this University, you are eligible to apply for Provincial Nominee Program through the master stream just after your graduation, so it's easy to get a Permanent Residence after that. I would like to stay here for a while to get to know the work culture of this country.
Dislikes (Internships): There is a co-op program that is given to students who have a past work experience of more than 3-4 years. The students who get a co-op most probably apply on their own or are given the company names by the university, I didn’t get any co-op so I cannot say much about it.

MAC program and University of Windsor is worth it to start your career abroad.
Tips: The campus has great study space, including a really good library. I'm glad I pursued this programme and moving to a new country definitely helped me to grow as a person. Initially managing stuff on my own was challenging, but it was worth it. I'm satisfied with the course and would recommend it to anyone who is looking to enter the tech industry.

Awesome and amazing University of Canada
Tips: Before joining students should know about academic programs, location and campus, financial support, living facility, Student support service, experience of faculty members related to selected programme and transportation. University also provides many scholarships for students like merit based scholarship, International student scholarship and many others. I am fully satisfied with the university and its course and city is very awesome.
Likes (Quality of faculty): Faculty in the department can be approached in many ways by having appointments, interacting with them during their office hours, asking doubts during lectures and using other communication channels like Email. Faculty members in the department are experts in their own fields and have unique ways of explaining different concepts. I found group project-based learning a unique concept. Diversity of faculty in the department is less.
Dislikes (Public transportation): Campus is well connected with the city as it is located in Ontario. Mode available for public transportation are Transmit Windsor, WEGO shuttle, U pass programme and so on. Well, public transport is not too costly but the problem here is the improper schedule of the buses, as it is public transport so it is more crowded and also there is a lack of accessibility.
