    After completing my class XII in India from CBSE board, I was looking for good colleges for mathematics abroad, that was when I stumbled on this college and applied to it for a fee of $120. Later after my research of the college, I confirmed it because I found its research structure and research prospect is great. Also, the application process was quite easy as I applied through the online portal.

    Course Curriculum :

    The program designed for us is pretty basic, with a semester exam every 6 months and three assessment test in between each of the semester and some boot camp and course certificate at the end of each semester to complete the point requirement for each semester.

    I chose this college because my cousin's sister has also studied from this college and gave me a very positive review. The faculty are very kind and helpful and you can make good friends from all over the world. Besides this, the MBA program at the University of Quebec is quite reputed and allows you to do an MBA directly after B.Tech. I applied to the university through the UQAM Admission Portal and the process cost me an amount of $130 as the application fee.

    Course Curriculum :

    It is a well structured and well-paced course with enough emphasis on both theoretical and practical learning. Learning is made more enjoyable with student-teacher interactions, corporate visits, etc. Because the batch size is small, students have ample opportunity to interact with professors and clear their doubts.

    Because it had a great reputation, and it was a way for me to stay within a course that would enable me to keep a certain generality into my work as I had no clear idea of what I was going to do later on.

    Course Curriculum :

    It's a great one and allows all the students to learn more about the different courses proposed, which are all covering different matters that will sooner or later help us in our professional lives, even though some are not really interesting.
