Well,to start i want to say that this is my first time studying and living abroad and apart from my family.in the beginning i felt homesick and so far i do,then i had to cope with my adaptation to the University's education system as well as to my surroundings which played an utmost role to my stay.Being university student is very exciting in the beginning, but when things start getting hot you become more serious and responsible for your actions.I accepted to take a dive into the new era of my life and so i am devoted to it.Other than studies, there is this good part which has to do with mingling around with people from different culture and background, here is where i got to know a bit of many western and occidental countries.i made a lot of friends,local students and internationals like me.The system the university use is approved internationally and it is a part of Washington accord.some other thing i like, is the well-roundness the University Cultivate and inculcate in it's students(me as an example),whereby you involve yourself in various extracurricular activities such sports,competitions, Cultural nights,festival of colours and other concerts that the Universit allow within its framework top be held within the campus.talking about the campus, it's a very nice campus, good hostel with good facilities ranging from 24/7 internet for study as well as other goods like common refrigerators,good bed and nice rooms(single or double up to you)...i really like the facilities in here ranging from study facilities to lifestyle facilities.last but not least, the University really support its students and let them flow within the limit of the university's framework.As for the people who really looking to study abroad, i would by whole positive forces advise you to join me in UTP where the environment was carefully prepared for your excellence and your dream to come true, As long as you comply with the rules and regulations(general point of the whole university) of the university,then things get easier and your life is as smooth as mine.come to UTP AND BE A WELL-ROUND STUDENT AND PROFESSIONAL. show less
