Coming from an entirely different continent and culture, it is difficult for a student to adjust to the environment, but the students and staff of the university have been so friendly and helpful that one can just feel at home. The importance that the university places on students is overwhelming. The student-friendly teaching pattern, the stress on independent learning and self-study gives us a chance to explore and understand ourselves deeply before getting into the corporate world that’s waiting with loads of opportunities for young adult minds like us to make a change.
