University of New York Tirana is one of the best choices if you are thinking of starting your studies in Albania. The academic staff is very perpared and they are ready to help you in any case with your studies. Due to the pandemic, the lessons were held online. Overall, I would really suggest any student to consider registering in UNYT.

I liked the part that within the 3-4 hour lecture there were breaks. Besides that the professors were ready to help you outside class time. You could also consult with your adviser privatly. The one thing i did not like is that my program was a 4 year program with some unnecessary classes, but that has already changed and for new enrollments it has become a 3 year program.
