I’ve truly chosen the best university for myself. The course is engaging and the lecturers are helpful. Furthermore this is a truly international university and I feel so comfortable here. Not only is the academic side of university life interesting but there are so many opportunities for growth and personal development sponsored by the university. It is truly a wonderful experience.

I loved my course, the professors were very knowledgeable and helpful. Experienced some difficulties with university administration and have heard of friends who encountered the same problem. Some departments are underfunded.
