    5.8 /10

    Because it’s one of the best university for my field that is Tourism and Events. Also, kind of the only one with a 2 year events program.

    Course Curriculum :

    I’m still in the first semester due to which only half of my courses are related to the program but it’s really good. The tourism subjects and professors are really good and understanding and the subjects are very interesting.
