“I think all of the teachers were knowledgeable and approachable but I would like to highlight my lab teacher who is a wonderful lecturer. Her presentations and lectures were excellent in terms of being interesting and informative.”
“Very interesting and relevant subjects! Good teachers, good spoken English.”
“The professors in the departments are so nice and friendly. There are no problems there whatsoever.”
“The booklet for the practicals are very well written. It describes the tasks thoroughly and provides the necessary informations for a successful practical. The tasks performed during the practicals is also very educational as they are relevant to future studies.”
“The practical teachers are very nice and helpful during experiments and make the labs fun and interesting. For a student that has a very hard time with orals the teachers are very helpful in the sense that they give you opportunity to think, answer, rethink your answer and practise your oral skills. This is extremely valuable especially when you’re not a native English speaker and has little experience of oral examinations. They give you a chance to practice and improve yourself.”
“Most of the departments are great, well organised and clear about everything. Very approachable.”
