Student Reviews

UCF is very average
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

My current University gets the job done. Classes are fun, and I have a great group of friends. However, It is nothing special. I am excited to study abroad so I can spend time somewhere new.

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

My overall experience at UCF was good, I really likes the school of communications, being a smaller school compared to the business school, it felt more personal to me. UCF also offers lots of support to students in different areas, from academical to personal, which is something that was a highlight for me.
