Empowering education with opportunities.
Tips: Before joining UAB students should research the academic programs available and choose one that aligns with their interests and goals. The campus environment is vibrant and diverse, with ample opportunities to involve in student organizations and activities. After coming to UAB, the transition is generally smooth, with the university providing support services and resources to help students adjust. UAB offers scholarships based on various criteria, including academic merit and financial needs. Overall, I am highly satisfied with the university as the faculty members are very supportive and ready to guide me towards extensive academic resources to excel and clear my doubts.

Do not expect any fee waiver and very less scholarships
Tips: We cannot expect any scholarships or fee waivers even if we get admitted to on campus jobs. The students have to pay the full fee on their own. Whereas in other colleges they will reduce a certain amount of fee if they are serving the college in any way.

This university is good, as a mechanical student.
Tips: Studies and student life is very good at this university, but from time to time submission for assignments is necessary and we have a strict academic integrity code. The education is good and worth for money, we can enjoy our life here and at the same time, we have our own things to do in our studies.
Likes (Student Life): Here for students we have all the necessary facilities. As an international student, I have the freedom to utilize everything. Part times are not that much good because we have a lot of international students here so we cannot get jobs easily.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): I am not planning to settle here. I will finish my master's and will do a job in India. I have a plan of finishing my master's and with my master's degree I need to earn a job in the top mechanical firm and need to lead my life with my parents in my own country. That's what I need in my future.

Academically oriented university.
Tips: I did not feel any major cultural shift during my time here. As there are a lot of Indians around in the city and in college as well. There was no special support provided to foreign students but there are some Hindu communities though which help. The Indian communities here organize many events and activities.
