I am really satisfied by lectures and courses, MULTITAEC opened this year and it's really interesting.
Good quality Uni, massive choice of courses and set in a peaceful & green setting. The lecturers/teachers are always open to questions and don't make you feel alone among hundreds of other students. Big openness to the world (lots of opportunities to travel & lots of international students study here). Overall, very pleased!
This has been the best and the worst experience at the same time. Why the best? Because I met a lot of people, I improved my language skills, I had the opportunity to study in a different country and to see how it works. From this point of view it has been useful to understand what works and what doesn't, in every field, starting from the education system. Why the worst?...
