In general it was a great experience but I would like to have more practical lessons
University of Thessaly is awesome, it has a big variety of courses to facilitate everyone’s needs. The university's location is superb, and the staff are extremely professional and responsive to one's demands. Something, that could be enhanced is for the Uni’s library into adding more books ,which they may be essential for the lectures.
During my studies in the Department of Architecture in UTH, I was able to learn more about the origins and the reasons behind designing, not only the visual part. Each and every course taught us something usefull and necessary, which in overall has given me many tools and ways of thinking while initiating a project.
