Student Reviews

Good enough for average students
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Not what I was expecting, quality of professors is not good.

First challenge I decided to take and succeeded.
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

It was the first challenge i decided to take. I had never experienced though times in my studies before. I cried, I laugh, I met a lot of people, I faced a lot of ups and downs, but what I am most proud of is that I never gave up despite all the times i thought i could not do it. I started university with my left foot, never imagined that life could get hard at this point...

Im A Engineering student right now, due to the insecurity of México it is really hard for me to even walk from my car to the entrance of the university, you are always scared you cam get kidnapped. I have an amazing english level and it’s really sad that my university doesn’t use any english, i cannot practice any social skills and i would love to go somewhere else
