Be yourself, there’s no one better.
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

My life in the university was fun. But when i was in campus, i just studied without a plan for the future. My studies' programmes were huge and large. So i couldn't decide what will i do for the future. But then, when i graduated, something came up and i decided to go to study abroad

Great program in prestigious university!
Andriani rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent program, taught entirely in English (except language lessons) with a diversity of nationalities and group projects are favored (the subjects of group work are very interesting). Lectures are done in a small group of students (around 20) and the lectures' subjects result to a well rounded Bachelor degree.
