I have really enjoyed my study experience so far at YSJ. The majority of tutors have been more than forthcoming and helpful in my education. It is a brilliant city to study in and I will find it very hard to leave!
My social life has been pretty intense, and I have met a lot of people who have had a pretty big influence on me. The studying is very flexible and can be self-driven.
