University of Toronto (Scarborough)
Why choose University of Toronto?
While going through colleges in Canada for higher studies I found this college and it was rated as one of the best universities in Canada and it has a good alumni network because it was established back in 1830. This was the main reason why joined the university. I filled the form online which cost me around $180.
The main component of the course includes Network theory, advanced mathematics and statistics, programming, data structure and algorithm. Other different fields like android development, data science and website development are also given the priority.
I have given the exam of SAT as my primary exam in which I scored 1072. Apart from that, I have completed my high school with a GPA of 8.9 on a scale of 10 from India in the stream of science. I have also given the exam of TOEFL where I scored 80 marks.
The fee for the course in the first year is around $42,000. The fee, I consider being slightly high in comparison to the content the course offers. The college provides a lot of opportunities to get financial aids for the students who are struggling to pay the tuition fee.
I have mainly stayed in on-campus placement mainly because it was new in the beginning and I thought living outside the campus would be risky but after that, I got accustomed to the hostel life. The room rent for the single bedrooms for single person is around $ 7000 (Everything is included) for 8 months
The college provides a very good job opportunity. The main job roles offered are software developer, data analyst and website developer, sometimes as a system designer as well. The percentage of the student getting placed is also very good around 89 % from the course of computer science
There are around 3-4 events that are celebrated in a year in the college. The main attraction being the annual festival. Other than that a lot of excitement remains there for the annual sports and freshmen welcome party. I lot of competition of different genre are also organized in the college.
Monthly Expense : $200 - $500
