This is a great university in one of the coolest cities I’ve ever been to. It’s such a student city full of life. I love how the classes on ED are small, and we get really close with our classmates. Most teachers are nice and open for a flexible schedule and always listens if we want to move around on the schedule. The education level is quite good theoretically and you...
I love studying. Great experience
We had a lot of theoretical information and less fold work in field that I am interested in. Also our Uni doesn’t divide students for the group of interests, so it is difficult for me to go deeper to the Environmental part of Biology.
