I opt for this college because it has a study that I want to do.
I have an interest in my field of study and I scored 7 bands in IELTS exam which was good enough for this college so I choose this course and college. This college has small class size which helps to create good enviornment for students to study and also small class sizes are helpful for instructors too they can teach well. There are only 35 students in one class.
