Student Reviews

KEA - the idea is great not the execution
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like studying here, but also a lot of repetition, which mean I am now only here for the title and not to learn anything new, which is a shame. Wish the teachers would communicate more, so we would not be learning the same things again and again. It has meant that I have had more time to get more work experience in my field though which I guess is nice, but not what I am...

Great school
