Study in Canada

By genius soul

I am planning to send my son for higher studies abroad in particular to Canada. He would finish his 12th grade from CBSE Science stream from an Indian school hopefully next year 2014. My son wish to do his bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering in an affordable Canadian university. The information available in the net and the people who wish to offer services are too many and some are misleading. The preliminary preparations,eligibility,the require funds etc., are some of the issues which I wish to know from any panel members of this forum who is aware and had gone through similar procedures to obtain an admission in an university abroad.

UBC is alright... NAIT... not so much.

My strong suggestion is to do a research.. in fact your son should do it himself... take a list of canadian universities and then create a table and insert all the relevant information by reading each and every program info on the web.. in other words go to each site separately and gather info such as tuition, entry requirements, co-op.... etc etc... then rate the programs and apply to those he likes.

Without doing a research my advice would be to apply to UVIC... for the following reasons... 1. good egineering school, 2 affordable, 3 strong co-op, 4. beautiful and safe city.

UBC is good too... but it is expensive particularly for international students due to tuition differential.... and pls pls pls.. dont waste your money on intermediaries or so called consultants... do it yourself.. most of them accept on-line application or email application.

Good luck !!
