    Among the several reason I wanted to join this university was that the course was of my interest with an affordable fees. I was always interested in visiting New Zealand as it isn’t as commercial as other countries.

    Course Curriculum :

    It was a lovely course. The faculty chosen is well trained and they make sure each student is included in every conversation. Classes include 100% students involvement rather than just being one sided conversation.
