A university to get admitted to

Tips: The buildings of the university are scattered and not in a place so many students sometimes find it a bit difficult to move from one lecture to the other. But with me it is not the case, our school of business is unique I must say! Gym facilities are great but there can be some improvements done to student career support in terms of searching the jobs or making the most out of placement year. Student community is good no doubt and there are many research opportunities too so if you are coming fr...

Good courses and subject matter made by experts.

Tips: Get used to the accent at least 3 months before coming to this place maybe see youTube video or anything that helps. The university is located in a port city, very stunning and breathtaking views. People come to this place for traveling purpose. 2-3K GBP students receive as an international bursary. Courses are industry-specific and subject matter is to the point nothing over or unnecessary is taught. For on-campus jobs all must refer to the university website and be up to date.

This college is fun and good to make friends

Tips: There is an international allowance available which is about 3000-4000 Pounds. Acceptance to this university is not very tough just submit documents on time and the process should be smooth.

Cook the food yourself it will be cheap and better. Bring some spices with you as they are very cheap. Dhaniya...
