It truly changed my life for the better
Tips: A very well-balanced university for a range of fields. There are many opportunities to engage with interests outside your main field of study. Great options to save on living costs. If you enjoy a small-town life with pretty much most amenities, Ann Arbor is a great choice.

Loved every bit of my time at this University
Tips: People are very kind and friendly in Ann Arbor. I am very satisfied with the university with the courses provided and the research opportunities available. My suggestion is to try and reach out to professors early so that you can avail the opportunity to participate in research.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): Companies willing to sponsor are decreasing gradually for the Automotive field. Opportunities are available in different roles, and compensation is very good and is different from company to company. Compensation is also varied on any previous work experience.

Weather here will take time adjusting to.
Tips: The winters are too cold and it's not easy at first but you get used to it. I am satisfied with the course and the country. Getting a scholarship for international students is difficult but not impossible. I take care of my rent and food and all the expenses with the part-time job and only need to worry about the college fees.
Likes (Part time work): On campus jobs are always available and are pretty easy to get. And managing part-time depends on the person, but for me, it's been pretty easy. 16 dollars an hour is the pay I get right now. That is pretty reasonable, but the pay really depends on the work.
Dislikes (Internships): There are career fairs happening frequently, and students do get internships through that, but it mainly depends on the student and majorly get internship applying individually but college does help out with the stuff you need. There are relevant internships available for my field of study.

One of the best Robotics Program
Tips: Transition was not very tough but the cold weather was an issue. Since it snows a lot here, the Winters are tough but the environment and the city are very nice and beautiful. It is a college town so it has many culturally diverse restaurants and bars. Scholarships are rare and the tuition fee is very high so make the decision keeping that in mind. I am very satisfied with the university and programme since I have a lot of freedom in course selection and there are many opportunities.
Likes (Student Life): The college has a lot of groups and communities for different affinities and are very welcoming. The college organizes many fun events to meet new students. There is always something happening in campus. You can definitely find something which interests you. Also, there are many restaurants and clubs near the university where you can socialize with others.
Dislikes (Part time work): Most of the part time is dining jobs which is very exhausting but pays enough that you can pay your monthly expenses. You can manage the part-time work with the academics but it can be demanding. The average payout for these jobs is 15 dollars/hr which is the minimum wage of the state Michigan.
