Student Reviews

As you recommend, ,,My shining review", greetings from Serbia :)
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

I personally want to think about what I am studying and share ideas. It should be like that by default, but it's not. It would be great to work on some projects, alone or with a team. One good thing I would like to mention that is present here is volunteering. We have many places and events that we could volunteer at and have a great fun.
