Student Reviews

Room for improvement but overall it is a good experience.
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I loved studying in this university because mostly, we had really good professors who were pretty creative, attentive, and helpful for the students though there were certain instances where I did not like studying for some courses as the professor just dictated and we would write all he said during the courses and it wasn't stimulating at all.

A strange man in search of knowledge
