Student Reviews

College and university degree in 4 years, Wow
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The program is incredibly interactive and hands on heavy. The second year of the program is taken in college which gives you a college degree in year 2 as well as a university degree in year 4 allowing you to find better jobs to pay for your further years of university. The class sizes in this program are very small so you get lots of attention from profs and can make good...

Awesome
