The programme is very challenging, the lectures are very interesting and I can learn a lot from my tutors. The University gives complete support through the library because I can retrieve the electronic journals everywhere. The tutors give me support by email at any time during the programme, and I have enough time to read and prepare my assignments.

The group of students is not too large, so the attention from our tutors is personalised and you feel confidence to ask your doubts. The tutors also know you very well; you are not a number such as in other universities.
