It is pretty good university in relation to academic studies because of the ratio teachers/students - you are getting all the support and attention you need. In general - if you like peace and academic athmosphere, studing with people from all over the world - you wil love it.

Final comments
My advice is - first learn as much as possible for the university (not from the representatives in your country, but rather through chat with current or former students), make sure you have the financial opportunity to study there, what is the ratio - students- teachers and good luck!

Personal comments
The housing is pretty good, clean and tidy. The things that could be better (and they are working on it now) is to provide a toilet and shower in each room (rather than the existing shared ones), internet points at each room, so you can use the fast university network straight from your room.
