Student Reviews

Worth the investment
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I loved my course, the quality of tuition is excellent and my language ability went from a level standard to at least C1 if not C2 level by the time I graduated. The facilities and social opportunities are numerous, the only thing I felt let the experience down was the support I received during my year abroad the university we’re pretty absent in that regard but otherwise...
