In the Corona pandemic, everything was online and that was okay and all at the beginning but then in the 3rd semester all most all Universities had the normal on Campus class and everything almost back to normal but in My university it wasn't, all the classes were online. It seemed like the Professors liked that way, and it might be easier, but not everyone can study...
great university, study programme could be nice if there were some changes
