Student Reviews

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The programme of the subjects could be changed because some of them are very theoretical and we need more practice

Calidad desorganizada
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

UPV-EHU posee un gran nivel, lo cual se plasma en el desempeño de los exalumnos en sus puestos de trabajo actuales. Sin embargo, como organización, puede ser objeto de mejora por parte de las Administraciones Públicas a las que les compete.
