    Language and community barriers

    It’s quite vast and thriving in several research/ theories in quite a few departments, however, it can one sided as attention seems to be biased as it’s heavily medical based, local students seem to have an upper hand as they establish connections easier than international students, it also lacks guidance and extreme workload tends to burnout of students altogether, therefore, changing of fields and interests.

    Disappointing

    Not as useful as it claims, not internationally recognised, I do feel all the exams and assessments were marked by a very low standard so students normally got a higher marks than the actual marking. Students from the same course were not motivated to study, they were just aiming to graduate from the course.

    Academics

    I think it’s a great university that gives you a lot of opportunities in terms of academics as well as extracurricular activities. The education system is fairly westernized and the professors are good for the most part.
