The different approach in learning works very well for myself, as I experience a very limited amount of growth when I am indulging myself into the more traditional systems by writing exams.

James Mashauri rated 3 out of 5 stars

University studies as the name address itself,is the place where people of different colour,religion,nation,ideology,culture and so on meet together and study together in the same area. In order to success in education specifically to university level colaboration with other students are inevitable
