    The professors are really helpful in classes and also in their office hours. As a student who has full scholarship I can recommend this university but it can be expensive without scholarship. The university has a luxury dormitory. But it is not free.

    In general it's a great experience because studying abroad has allowed me to know not only one culture but many cultures and them lifestyles also I learned a new language which I'm sure that it will help me in the future... . But the only problem is that the university doesn't do any effort in order to help the student especially foreign students in them study or help them...
