    I wanted to study abroad so I consulted a study abroad consultancy. They helped me to apply to various universities. And apparently I was selected in two universities. Between them, I chose to study at the University of Waterloo. I had applied for it through a common application form.

    Course Curriculum :

    With endless options and electives, my program gives me an option to study a tailored curriculum. It is varied and interesting enough to be studied. I am also getting skills like Advanced Functions, Calculus, and Vectors.

    I heard a lot of good about this university on the internet and since then planned to continue my further studies from there. Also, the tech programs at my university are the best in Canada so I applied for this particular college only, and with god's grace and wishes of my parents, I got selected at this university. To take admission I created an OUAC account online, The application fee cost me around $155 and additional $8 as an international student fee.
