Student Reviews

Universidad Alcalá de Henares
Guillermo Moreno Paredes rated 5 out of 5 stars

Studying at the University of Alcalá de Henares has been very positive and I have learnt a lot. Even so, there is a lot of room for improvement in the way classes are given. It should be more practical because currently everything is very theoretical.

Best teachers
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

We have some of the best teachers in their field. But somehow there is a feeling of not being taken into account by the university.
