    • The University lives up to its name. It's very diverse, more than expected. The lecturers are really kind, everything looks nice. It's bit big and hard to navigate at first but I think I'll get used to it. Overall it's quite nice~

    • The quality of teaching is the best part about this university and the course itself, lecturers are readily available for private meetings, the lectures are available on moodle to catch up however the quantity of required reading is large so it is costly.

    • The lecturers are mostly great at explaining things and they answer my questions clearly. The content is great I enjoy learning it. The tutorials are especially helpful in helping understand how to use particular equations and explaining hard topics.
