Studying here is like a fairytale. A combination of cultural heritage and magnificent nature makes this place unique, while interesting and diverse classes allow students to compose individual curriculum plan suitable for different personal career goals. Here I learned a variety of new concepts, found many international friends among students and staff, and gained inspiration for further research projects.
