Student Reviews

love it here
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I honestly really do live it here. the campus ist great, really nice people study here, the professors and teachers really communicate on eye level and help you with anything you struggle with. Cafeteria could be better tho. Overall I`m really happy here and would recommend it to everyone

Very social, research based study experience
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great university for studying your bachelor's. You will get to know many like-minded people, a useful network, practical experience like nowhere else and the opportunity to really flourish in your department of interest if you put in the effort. Education is good, but will not be enough if you do not participate in outside - of - school activities.

Exposure towards sports science
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

I got a great experience in my university in both practical and theoretical aspects of sports science, I have trained both general and athletic population in my internship, done nutrition assessments and psychological assessments, I had done many sports specific assessments
