Student Reviews

Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am very happy with my university and my degree as it offers a very good range of courses.

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The best thing about this university is that they generally care about the student. The groups are rather small (no more than 30 people in the worst case) allowing teachers to acknowledge the students and helping each of them individually if the need to. The facilities are also quite modern. We can't forget that it is a catholic university and therefore religion and ethics...
