Education with more possibilities
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

City University of Seattle connects people with same goal in life - to be independent. Therefore we are able to create connections among each other, with further intentions in future. However, CityU in Slovakia provides more options than usual. Students are able - after more effort - have dual degree. One useful in Europe and second that can be used on international level.
