Student Reviews

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

My university is giving me 100% scholarship. My education became free to me. They are giving scholarships to student in need or successful. Education is perfect because they are working with proffesors or teachers who at least made master.

Instructors are okay, but is that enough?
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

Most of the teachers have good academic background, and they pay attention in their students, they are easy to reach and meet, and they are guiding you if you are in need, but the overall functioning of the university is not good at all. Nothing is in order or well planned. The administration is not doing well.

Great Experience
