It's a wonderful place to study. Professors are always willing to assist and support you.

Extra credit to the lecturers.

First of all, I would like to infer that all the proffesors are amazing, they are helped me a lot to learn as much as everything I could. If I had the opportunity to change something from the university that would definitely be the delivery time of books, because I did not have them on time to study properly.

Overall the experience was ok. The university lacks organisation and the teachers couldn’t communicate with the students.
