Student Reviews

The sun will shine
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

The overall teaching method is good. But the system is not. We are having problems in our online subjects.

Discovery program: we need more to discover!
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

Students are given the freedom to personalize their own curriculum from a wide range of academic fields, but the courses that are offered are quite lacking, especially in my area of interest.
