    Hi guys im from Srilanka.I have finished my A/L s and im waiting for my results.
    My plan is to study Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering in Canada.
    I've researched about some universities in Canada.Tution fees is the main factor for me.Im looking so uni's around $7000 per year.So finally ive decided to join University of Alberta or University of Manitoba.Ive heard that Uni of Alberta is more recognized and better ranked than uni of Manitoba.But the thing is alot of Srilankans and my older friends study Engineering at Manitoba.So what do you think guys shall I join Alberta or Manitoba?Or are there any other universities which are better than UniofAlberta and UniOfManitoba? (Ive heard that Uni of British Columbia is good for Engineering).
    Hoping for some ideas and answers. Btw im a Srilankan Canadian dual citizen.

    Are you sure about those tuition costs? The international fees I'm looking at for Engineering undergraduate at University of Alberta are CAD$25,211.52 and for Manitoba it's CAD$20,000.

    Are you sure... for example, UK citizens living abroad but wanting to go to UK universities are charged the international fees.

    Also TSR is mostly about UK universities. I'm not sure there's many around with enough experience to compare your 2 Canadian universities.

    The UK is pretty much the only place that does this, everywhere else does it solely by citizenship as far as I know.
