The trimester system kills students' mental health and general wellbeing. There's no longer a 4 months break once a year of degree has finished.

UTP is one of the best university i will recommend to enter. The environment and facilities are the best. It is just a bit expensive without any sponsorship but there is a lot of finance aid that can help throughout the Programme.
