Learning conditions, quality of teaching and lack of diversity.
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Studies has been going pretty well as expected. Studies keeps strictly to well-organized schedules and we have well-defined course contents and objectives. Teachers are very supportive and timely in their responses. We have good facilities, equipment and very conducive learning environment. The school has very small number of international students and so lacks diversity...
