It gives satisfactory but not as good .

University Experience Review
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The University is smaller so it allows you to have a community based experience while studying there. The smaller tutorial and seminar lessons allow for a more personal learning environment. Throughout the year multiple group and individual assignments are given that genuinely help in developing both your collaborative and independent academic skills.

My very first experience in LHS.
