    Student Reviews

    “I am a medical student while everyone was fleeing from that field.” Despite the economic, social and health crises, I consider myself a “fighting student, responsible and ambitious to develop myself.”❤️
    Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

    My experience at the university was very good, in addition to that, my university provided me with many internships in hospitals and sporadic training, and I finished the university stage with a very good grade. Despite the Corona epidemic, it was always keen on the distance education system to provide us with the most fruitful and best information.
