Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Professional instructors Relevant seminars Much student-student and teacher-student interaction A possibility to concentrate on that branch of studies which is interesting for you Mostly theoretical knowledge

It takes time
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Art History is not easy to study. Most people think the courses are boring and that you do not learn much. But it's the other way around. My start at the university was hard but I managed it and I'm totally happy that I stayed there and kept trying.
