SUMMER OR MAY EAT (May to August) CONCLUSION: Although there are many potential jobs, you are only allowed to work 20 hours per week because you are studying full-time during this intake. If you start in May, you will miss out on many internship and coop chances (during your first year). May Intake is basically considered a major intake for Canadian PR or citizen students exclusively; however, it is also considered a minor intake for international students. Canada has three admission intakes for both international and domestic students. The deadlines for applying for May intake are usually around February. However, the dates may differ from one institute to the next. In Canada, there are three college intakes for Diploma Courses. They are similar to university admissions in Canada. It also depends upon the kind of PG diploma course you want to pursue. If you have any further questions just ask me.

I advise you considering both the academic and practical aspects of a May intake. Academically, some programs may offer a limited selection of courses in May, which could impact your study plan. On the practical side, consider the job market cycle in Canada. Graduating in a non-traditional month may slightly misalign you with peak hiring seasons, which typically follow the academic year. 

However, this can also be an advantage, as you'll face less competition during off-peak times. It's important to weigh these factors against your personal and professional goals. Remember, each intake has its unique advantages and challenges, and it's about finding the right fit for your journey!

The major challenges you can faced was the quick pace of the summer semester. The courses are condensed into a shorter period, which means a lot more material to cover in less time. This can be quite intense, especially for international students adjusting to a new education system. 

Also, fewer students start in May, so there are smaller class sizes. While this can be great for personalised attention, it also means fewer networking opportunities with classmates. But don't worry, with good time management and a can-do approach to socializing.
