Hear from Your Peers!

Are you beginning your studies with us online? Hear from student Uy Long Diep on his first semester of online studies!

I found it really convenient for me because all the studying activities were conducted online, from listening to lectures, discussing and presentations, to submitting exercises and assignments and downloading learning materials. Professors understand student needs, and they have created fun ways for us to share ideas, reminders, and our designs in virtual ways!”
