Hi,
I am an Indian student studying INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS MANAGEMENT(IBM) in Seneca College, Toronto, ON. This is one year course and I want to choose another course for next year in different college. I'm thinking about UNIVERSITY OF CONCORDIA (Montreal). but I'm very much confused about that province. I have questions like,
- Is it good place to study?
- Can I get a part time job while studying there?
- what is the probable proportion of Indian people living there?
- how's the behavior of people of Montreal, I mean is it safe to live there especially as a student?
- Can I find Indian students studying there?
- The most important, as "I DON'T KNOW FRENCH". So It will affect to get part time job and living condition there I mean will I feel difficulty to sustain there without French and only on English language?

Concordia is a good school especially if you're looking at studying business. If you can manage work and school then yes you could get a job but since you don't speak French finding employment might be tough. You might have better luck if you look at on campus jobs. You might get hired in retail or food service but that will largely depend on the individual employer.

There is a decent size Indian community here and Montreal's English universities (McGill and Concordia) have a fair number of Indians as part of their student body. With regards to the quality of life Montreal is an incredibly safe city and the cost of living is much lower than Toronto so it is more doable on a student budget. Even if you don't speak French you will have no trouble getting by with your day to day activities like getting groceries. As I said before it will affect your chances of employment though.
