  1. Hi. I've received admits from University of British Columbia, Vancouver and McGill University, Montreal. Both these are funded masters programs. I'm unable to choose between the two! I like the McGill research topic better. The stipend value is also greater here. Plus Montreal is much more cheaper than Vancouver. However, Vancouver is an amazing city to be in and I wouldn't want to miss it(?). Also, not being a francophone might hurt me in Montreal. Any inputs from seniors would be appreciated. For UBC: MASc in Mechanical Engineering For McGill: MEngg (thesis) in Biological and Biomedical Engineering My research interest is along the lines of microfluidics. I am someone who wishes to join the academia, and would be looking into PhD opportunities post this masters.
  2. Almost ready to join UBC MDS program for September 2019. (Waiting for Michigan Ann Arbor!) Anyone else joining UBC? Would love to connect. P.S - International Student
  3. Hello! Anyone starting a graduate program in UBC Vancouver in September 2018? I just accepted my offer to do a MA in Geography, would love to connect and discuss with any fellow UBC-bound students
  4. Hello, Initially planning to apply to Canadian programs only (I am an anthropology student) I decided to take the GRE and change most of my applications to US programs after learning that funding and quotas for international students were limited there. I have been accepted to the PhD program at UBC with 4 year funding at CAD18,200 and informed that there would also be possible TA'ship positions later at CAD 12,000. It would be great to study in Canada, as while I know that PhD programs (perhaps just for the social sciences) are more 'valid' when from the US, my homecountry is a mess right now, and my spouse (who is an architect) and toddler will be accompanying me and Canada does give the chance of PR'ship after 3 years which we might consider as well as work permits on arrival etc. etc. I'm wondering if I'm not mistaken in thinking that a monthly CAD1500 is a bit too low for a student to manage in Vancouver, even if I were to go alone? (We will have a little extra funding set aside but it will be spent on childcare) The rents for one thing are so high! I'm still waiting for the results from Queens (Cultural studies) and York and a few other US universities (I have received one acceptance) but am wondering if anyone could advice me before I decline.. I know there are gov grants that can be applied to but most seem to be for Canadian citizens and also I'm not sure if I should count on those.
  5. Anyone coming to Vancouver for their grad studies? I will be starting my PhD this fall.
  6. Hi guys! I got accepted to a couple of journalism grad programs in Canada and I'm torn which one to choose. So, I desperately need input and advice to put things in perspective and hopefully, make a logical decision that I won't regret. Anyway, I got in to the Master of Journalism program in UBC, Western, Ryerson, and Carleton. What are the pros and cons of each program? Which one is better? Should I attend the one that offers me the most funding or choose the one I really want to attend? Feel free to response! I'm just desperate as deadlines to accept/decline offers are coming up. Thanks!
  7. Hi, I have applied to quite a few Masters and PhD in Economics, and so far I have only received two responses, both which were somewhat positive, an admission offer from SFU with a $21,000 scholarship and an admission offer from Bocconi. Now, my problem is that Bocconi expect an answer before March 11th and SFU by then end of the month. I am still waiting for Cornell, UBC, and the University of Zurich (I sent that one very late, like 2-3 weeks ago). I honestly don't know what to do. Should I email them and let them know of my other deadlines (and offers?), and see if they can give me an idea of where my application is at? What about those two offers, how do these two universities compare? I heard bad things about Milan, how does the quality of life of those two places compare? I should add that I plan on pursuing a Ph.D after I am done with my Masters.
