Top tier University with highest research excellence.
Tips: To thrive as an international student, it's crucial to adeptly navigate diverse networking opportunities. Foster friendships regardless of nationality, establishing a circle for learning, creating memories, and exploring career prospects. I haven't received a scholarship, as obtaining one is challenging. If you aspire to secure one, expert significant effort. Prior experience in the course is recommended for better understanding and coping with the curriculum. It's crucial to explore the university research and academic profile. About the university, I would say it's a great place for aspiring studies and the courses provided are efficient.
Likes (Student Life): The student body is amiable, and the university offers a plethora of learning resources. The class schedule allows for flexibility, providing students with ample time to explore various facilities on campus The university's primary highlight is the student library, serving as a valuable hub for accessing a wide array of materials to enrich one's knowledge. Additionally, there exist student communities which foster a sense of belonging and camaraderie among students. Frequent events and celebrations are organized for occasions such as Diwali, Holi and more. These gatherings offer students opportunities to meet and network with their peers. Additionally, these events serve as a platform for students to showcase their talents, including dancing, singing and various other skills.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): The faculty members are exceptionally approachable and their commitment to assisting students beyond the confines of lecture hours. The professors go the extra mile by making themselves available for doubt solutions even during weekends. Embracing a practical teaching methodology, each professor in my department meticulously prepares presentations for every topic, accompanied by clear and illustrative examples. The diversity within the faculty enriches the learning experience, as we benefit from the varied perspectives of educators hailing from countries such as India, China, Japan, USA and more. The cultural mix not only adds depth to the academic environment but also fosters a global outlook among students.

Tips: Boston has a tough weather condition. Please make sure befor you travel here, do take all the necessary vaccinations and bring the medications required.

Master of Science in Information Systems - Batch of 2024
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
My perspective is that it's too crowded
Tips: 1. The cultural fit is not challenging as all the students and most of the faculty for Masters are Indians. 2. As far as I know there are no scholarships. 3. Selecting courses and faculty and planning your day and semester is very crucial. Assignments while being heavy can be very beneficial if done independently.
Likes (Public transportation): Trains and buses are available in frequent intervals within proximity all over the city with 2$ minimum fare. Redeye is a free cab service available at the Boston campus from evening 6 to morning 6 within a range of 2 miles from the college library but heavy wait times.
Dislikes (Part time work): 1. Campus is overcrowded with students and there are very limited on-campus jobs. 2. Part-time are manageable and completely depend on the individual and workplace. 3. Average payout is 13-18$ RSO, TA, IA, RA, Marino, SquashBusters, Wollaston's, ITS are few part time jobs to look out for.

It's a hole in your pocket so better come determind to make the best use of the time spent here
Tips: I am from Mumbai so I didn't face any major cultural shift however living conditions for students are pretty bad and personally have deteriorated quite a lot. NEU doesn't give any scholarships whatever to international students. If you have US citizenship you can apply to something called FFSA (not sure) I am just in my first semester so not good not bad experience about the university but if I had the chance to choose college again I would look elsewhere.
Likes (Public transportation): Easily accessible trains. Not so student-friendly though you have to tap or wait for the next train and hope for the back doors to open so you can travel without spending money. But the connectivity to the entire town is good and helpful. It's all about initial adjustments till you get used to it.
Dislikes (Part time work): There are no on-campus jobs for students in comparison to the intake the college has. We usually have to go around begging teachers and store owners for jobs and still might not get anything after one semester. You have a brother-like friend you are blessed else hard luck even on campus. You might get a job but not on campus.

NEU: empowering cybersecurity excellence
Tips: I could get acquainted easily to the weather as I am from Bangalore. Initially we do experience cultural shifts but not difficult to get used to. I haven't availed any scholarships. I am extremely satisfied with the experience. NEU has provided an exceptional learning environment equipped with highly knowledgeable faculty. The course work is comprehensive, challenging and is according to the current industry landscape.
Likes (Value for money): The course curriculum covers all the aspects and concepts of cybersecurity. In comparison to the course curriculum of other colleges with regard to cybersecurity, NEU has one of the best curricullum and faculty. The TA on campus is really beneficial to get the experience of working alongside a professor to impart knowledge to the students.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): Due to the current recession scenario, we are unable to find full time opportunities. Many companies who used to offer sponsorship have refrained from doing so since 2023 till the situation becomes better. Hence, international students are finding difficulties in securing a sponsored job.
