It was good year, what a pity that Masetr course takes only 1 year here. I would enjoy it more if I wouldn't be under the time pressure at the end of semesters. However, different methods of teaching and good contact with lecturers and students make me satisfied. Read Review

Quite good parties and music events at University's club LCR, also crazy parties made by sociaties (Greek, Mexican..). For a coffee break I would recommend Union Pub, also Blend (on Campus), however, if you have more time go to in city center, nice atomsphere in Nero and few other coffee shops.
