This university is close to home and has excellent professors and staff that just want to see their students succeed. The volunteer programs are exceptional and they have a great option to study abroad that allows for different learning experiences around the world. The fees are reasonable and cover a wide range of things that most universities don't offer.
This program gives me a direct link to the career of my choice. The class sizes are small so the professors have the opportunity to get to know their student and all the professors have real-life experience. I also have the opportunity to do a practising if I choose which will allow me to decide if this is the career path I want to choose.
My friend uses to go here and I had decent reviews about the university and the city itself! The admission process was quick and fast. It's just the fee that is a little more expensive but overall a nice option for students. I applied for this university on my own with any help and the process was quite easy and I had assistances from university officials in between.
My IELTS score was 7.5 and around 80% in grade 12. Usually, all our classes have around no more than 35 students, which makes it easy to interact with the professor! Overall to complete this course, you need to have 62 credits. The minimum requirement is 6 bands. Other requirements are high school maths and related science courses. You can also get into the program through university offering qualifying studies.
Good career, was kind of 2+2 were your credits are transferred from a different college to any college you want to get it. Good practical knowledge and overall the campus is good on of the reason is that it does provide internships and all so a good option if you looking to find a good career.
Good professors, good campus, good services provided such as dental and health plan, medical card and that's it.
Near to my home, and kind of repute. It offers the courses that I desire and is in a beautiful place. Classes are small and for limited students and the place is accessible.profs are kind and helps when needed.
I am doing computer science and all the courses that I want are being offered. The teachers are kind and the no. of students in a single class is limited due to which it makes the class more engaging.
Affordable and easy to get to. Appropriate courses and a great environment to start a college career in. Does not require me to move out or made great lifestyle changes. It was a rational choice.
Too broad, the curriculum seems not focused on the subject of interest, rather they want to fill up time using pedantic portfolio classes and irrelevant courses. In terms of classes specifically.
