Student Reviews

HAN has ups and downs. But it's a good ride.
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

The individual course is good. The overall set up of the University is a little chaotic. For example, my year was the first year of international mechanical engineering. COVID19 hit during our first year. Every new course will have teething problems. and a global pandemic will always cause disruption. The two together made things very difficult and uncertain for HAN...

Lovely school
