8 :: Why dont you do this course here in India?

You should know what difference the course would bring
to you if done from Canada instead of India. If the course
is not available in India, you can tell the Visa Officer
that it is not offered in India. If the same course is
available in India, highlight the differences in the quality
of education and the course structure in India and Canada.
You should convince the Visa Officer that doing this course
from Canada will add value to your profile. Talk about a few
researches being conducted in that field. Technical words
work out when other things don't.

Similar course in India is entirely theoretical. Whereas the
same course in Canada comes along with Internship and a lot
of project work. Internship & projects will give me a lot of
practical knowledge. After completing the course I will not
get only the degree, but also experience in the field. Also,
the research facilities are not that great here in India.

applied to 4, got 1 admit, 2 awaited and 1 reject. Visa
Officer will have record of the Universities accepted your
application and not of your rejections. You should say that
the chosen university was your first choice.
