My short journey of self-discovering
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

My university experience was amazing. I experienced so many new things in a short time. I was introduced to so many new concepts that it shifted my perspective. It was the period of time when I got to learn a lot about myself and have a clear vision of who I want to become. The staff of teachers is absolutely helpful and dedicated to giving the most to the students.

Some evaluation about UW
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

A University with a friendly atmosphere and very kind students join here from every continents. However, after 2 years studying, the knowledge about Business that I've learned is not too much. I feel like there should be more subject related to Business in order to help students have confidence in finding internships.
