Student Reviews

A mediocre university.
Mario Mieza rated 2 out of 5 stars

I studied Broadcasting, journalism and media communications (1st year) and I must confess that I did not feel like I was progressing very much. I went there to learn about journalism but the actual lectures of journalism felt like being in high school again, just reading articles and although I talked to the teacher about the lack of challenge of this subject, it remained...

The only problem i found was the diferencies between the programme there and the one in my home city

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The student was given a lot of autonomy to study which was great because we could organise to get the assigments done in time and without doing them in a hurry (unlike my home university). However, the academic contents we studied were not really advanced.
