Student Reviews

My experience
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

I think the study system should be improved. There are no small tests and no assignments; you just study everything and do the final exam. It's very difficult

Great University with many courses and languages.
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Overall, the professors were nice and the staff was really helpful when needed.

It's an okay university for studying math
Provided by U-Multirank rated 4 out of 5 stars

How well courses are taught heavily depends on which professor you get. A lot of professors here aren't thinking that much about didactics, but they do know their stuff. Side Note: Don't study math if you are depressed. Making friends who also study math is essential for you success if you decide to study math.
