Student Reviews

Comprehensive v.s. medical school
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

In my university, we have adequate resources and supports for interdisciplinary learning. I’m able to obtain abilities like management, marketing, and entrepreneurship. However, we are still a medical university. There aren’t multiple colleges like comprehensive university for us to dig into different courses.
