Good but not the best. Very less chances for visa refusal.

Tips: It is a good university but not the best. If you have slightly low grades in your graduation and you want to persue MBA in a public university then this is the right place. The minimum passing grade is 70% in each subject so be prepared for that although the study is not too hard. Most importantly, choose your instructor wisely, there are ratings so you can check those before enrolling yourself in a course. The type of instructor matters a lot.

Likes (Safety): If I compare it with my home country I think its saf...

A brief about Thompson Rivers University

Tips: It is in the interior of BC, the university is gradually growing and making its name in the region. It could get boring if you don’t have a good social circle as the city sleeps at 8-9 pm. Faculty is good if you ask questions and show interest in the discussions.

Likes (Permanent Immigration): Kamloops is a small town with good job opportunities plus living expenses are now as well. Being in the interior, it gives a better chance at getting PR soon. Canada is welcoming new students/immigrants right now and it is a very good op...
