Student Reviews

Enjoy learning with excellent professors here!
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The staff provided me useful information since I got the offer. I could plan my learning with no obstacles almost. They prepared lots of workshops to help us get used, which did make sense. Although I can not study on-campus because of the pandemic, I gained much from the professors, especially Dr. Alex Jingwei He. A charming speaker who shared a large number of real cases...

The location was a bit far, the teaching was way to conventional at times.
