    The students are very welcoming and helpful. This is a university with values of solidarity, careness and globality. It offers many possibilities for further development in other areas aside od studies.

    It is a new university, therefore it lacks that sense of centenarian tradition and expertise in teaching which you can experience in older European universities.
