It´s in general a good level university, the tutors of the modules are excellent teachers but the administrative and organizational part of the university fails

Is Universidad Metropolitana a great choice?

I started studying psychology at Universidad Metropolitana in Caracas, Venezuela. It is a great university but i realized i wanted to change career paths this year. I would like to pursue my dreams and study architecture in Europe.
