Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

overall study and the university environment is good but fee is very expensive.

Somehow Disappointing
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

I expected so much out of my University experience, maybe that also ruined it a bit for me. I had a lot of fun at times, don't get me wrong.However, I also felt alone and frustrated, something I had never felt before. Perhaps it had to do with the fact that I was away from my family and old friends, in a completely new country. But I think I would place most of the blame...
