Experience of our students

To be able to undertake a master’s degree that I feel genuinely passionate about has been a rewarding experience. The structure of the degree has been in intensive mode. This means there is a significant amount of information that you are exposed to during each class and, as a result, there is a lot of self-study and research to do in order to complete assignments and prepare effectively for examinations. This learning method was challenging at the beginning but as the program has evolved, I have managed to develop skills that have allowed me to cope with the intense pace and focus better on what I need to learn. The multicultural environment, you can really expect to work together with people from all parts of the world. Quality teaching and the facilities, the teaching staff includes industry professionals and highly regarded researchers. I had strong supports from friendly colleagues, supervisors, and staff members towards the completion of my degree. The campus is just amazing, lots of green areas and beautiful buildings. Best experience of staying on campus was to get glimpse of old town and castle from my window. Class rooms, laboratories, etc. are just appropriate and more than enough to make you feel comfortable and provide you the best environment as a student. Thank you!!!
