Due to the future prospects and improvement personally
It's been only a month but I've learned a lot about programming and that's what I came here for. I love that I'm in a class full of internationals because I enjoy getting to work with cultures from around the world. Everything is really great, can't complain.
The educational system at UCN (and Denmark in general) is of a very high quality due to the Reflective practice based learning, preparing students for "the real" world after having finished their studies, with emphasis on group work/projects.
