Hey Tanvi. Hope you're doing good!

Yes, you can pursue your Masters in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo as well as the University of British Columbia without any job experience. Did you check out the general eligibility criterion set out by these universities? If not, I did some research. See if it helps you.

Eligibility for Masters in Computer Science in The University of Waterloo

1. You should have a bachelor's degree in computer science/engineering with a minimum of 78% 
2. You would also  need to produce the proof of English language proficiency (TOEFL-100, IELTS-7.5) If you don’t have the required score, book a call and our experts will guide you on how to get a kickass score in IELTS. Book your call now via 
3. Another requirement is that you also need to offer three references, amongst which at least two need to be academic. 

Eligibility for Masters in Computer Science in the University of British Columbia

1. You need to hold a degree equivalent to the UBC 4 year bachelor’s degree.
2. If you have done your bachelors apart from Mathematics, Statistics, engineering, you can also present a relevant coursework. 
3. You must have secured a minimum of 65% in all your academics.
4. Another important point - International candidates need to present their English Language Proficiency by presenting a valid TOEFL score taken in the last 24 months.

Since it is nowhere mentioned that a work experience is mandatory for applying to any of these two universities, it's not at all a necessary requirement. As long as you fulfil all the other requirements, you can apply for Masters in Computer Science in both of these universities. Do you have any more doubts? Hit me up and I’ll try to answer it for you.
