The programme and university overall is good. Maybe learning the main local language (Mandarin) might improve my experience.
Having graduated with bachelor degree in pharmacy, the experience I gained with my present study really broaden my knowledge. Especially in clinical management of patients beginning from diagnosis to treatment and patient care during recovery stage. More so, the necessary public health knowledge is very much enlightening. All along I have been wanting to further my studies...
Very good university,internationally oriented,offers variety of opportunities, rich library and modern facilities
