    As my relatives stayed near the university, I had stayed at their place only. My travel expenses were around $4000. Some of my friends stayed at the on-campus housing facility of the university paying around $15000 for room and meals.

    I decided to pursue my further studies from Canada, and get settled there only. My relatives staying in Canada helped me a lot in taking the admission into the university. My high school GPA of 7 and fluency in french language added more value to my application. The admission procedure was quite simple as I had to apply through the online application by paying an application fee of around $50.

    Even though my family lives in Vancouver, I still chose to live on campus with the school's residence. Many reasons include convenience, better social life, events, and how time-consuming it is to transit every day I have class, etc. Housing and food are costly though, so it's good to weigh out the pros and cons. For international students, however, I do strongly suggest on-campus housing at least for the first year.

    It was close in proximity, and I was very familiar with the area already. The application process was relatively simple and it came without an essay requirement. Overall, I applied to 7 other universities. Ultimately, I chose UBC because it was really welcoming towards IB program graduates and it is among the top universities in Canada for my major (psychology).

    I live off-campus because I'm from town. I save a lot of money living with my parents. On days I choose to buy my lunch on campus, the prices are reasonable. There are lots of options, I'm vegan, and I can always find something to try.

    I heard about it because I live in the city. It's close to home and a reputable school so it was my top choice when applying for schools in grade 12. It's in a beautiful city and is a nice sized campus; not too big, but not super small. Although I understand that school is expensive, UBC is an affordable school in a pretty area.

    I am living on campus because it is a big part of the whole college experience and helps build inclusion within the school community. It is nice to be close to all learning resources and to be with other students who are in the same position as you. At my university, the meal plan is included with dorm and it is a basic plan that covers all my meals for the day. So far I have faced minimal challenges.

    I chose UBC because of it's a top-rated school in the country and I wanted the best learning opportunity I could get. As a student going into sciences, UBC offers a wide range of courses in the subjects I'm interested in. The admission process was straight forward, fees were average. I applied to four schools and I was accepted into all of them due to my high grades in secondary school. UBC was always my first choice which is why I ended up choosing it.

    I live at home. Most choose to live on campus for the first year to get used to university life. After the first year, students tend to move out and rent in nearby locations like or Kitsilano. Usually, places that are 30 minutes away by transit and require no transfers.

    Because it is the best university on the west side of Canada. I did not want to leave home and go away to another place. The admission process took a long time to complete. There were many questions and was accompanied by an online interview. I had two interview questions. The application fee was pretty reasonable. My grade 12 average was at least top 10% of my grade (out of 500 people).

    I chose to live off-campus and at home because it is a lot cheaper where I live, the housing market is very hot and my family lives within a 15-minute drive from the school. I am able to sometimes ride my bike to save money not using a parking pass as well.

    Offered what I needed, new campus as a branch of UBC in Vancouver but included the small school vibes. The application process included an extensive personal profile but acceptances wasn't solely based on academic marks and achievement. Found that through that experience, they really valued their students and wanted them all to feel welcome and be able to give their gifts in many different ways across their campus.

    I opted for on-campus housing as it was economically affordable for me and was near to the campus. I used to pay around $2000. This fee included living costs, food costs, and security charges.

    I applied to various colleges and universities that offered an MBA program. My application was accepted in two to three colleges. Then I took admission at the University of British Columbia. I paid an application fee of $150 for the same.

    The overall living expenses were $15000 for off-campus accommodation. All the charges like a living, food, and transportation are included in this cost.

    After applying to the various universities I got the admission letter from the University of British Columbia only. So I immediately took the admission here. Being an Indian international student, I was required to submit my English proficiency exam scores and transcripts along with the common application form.
