*THIS IS MY PERSONAL REVIEW* My experience at university of East London has not been the best as the school is so disorganized with no communications between departments of the institution which has affected me and my academics in a very bad way. My first experience as an international student in a developed country has been the worst experience of my life from the first...
Met some amazing people. The course is challenging and encouraging. Lots of support from staff and teachers. Also, research database is excellent.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience on this BA course, the lecturers have so much knowledge and are so easy to talk to. I have developed a strong professional and personal relationship with my tutors.
