"A few tips about ISA"
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

My experience so far at ISA have been good. I like the fact the university brings company personnels who are expertise in varoius related field to lecture us on our varoius modules, it really helps to gain the real time experience before hand. But there are long classes hours and sometimes beomes difficult to follow the modules correctly.

The Best University Ever
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

My experience is awesome. Professors are well educated and have experience in the "field", labs are well equipped, and anything that you need you will find there. An academic adviser is the nicest and the most helpful person that I ever met. I advise everyone to choose this university because here you will find a lot of knowledge and good friends.

Going to ISA?
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

The program was very practical and I acquired a lot of knowledge and skills in food science. The syllabus was loaded and time consuming. The process of finding internship to validate the degree was difficult. The grading system is based on class score. There is no actual marking scheme and different lecturers give different grades to same/similar works.
