Student Reviews

My life in KTU
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Studying abroad was always one of the dreams. In the beginning it was pretty hard to get adjusted to European culture as I was from Asia. Later on things got better. The professors here are really cool. And the best part about my university is the services available here. Super good library, advanced labs etc. Going on Erasmus exchange program was one of the best things...
