Lack of academic engagement and challenge, under-managed program with miscommunications; knowledgeable lecturers but program lacks depth and practical engagement ie. internship. Adequate accommodation facilities, self-contained campus. Range of activities for international students (Caucasian/European).

Review of UNNC
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

UNNC is an excelent school for students who are independent and who have international horizon. It offers us great opportunity to reach out the world and develops us into a global citizen. However, the course and teaching staff in UNNC can still be improved, especially the quality of the foreign teachers.
