Professors are friendly and eager to help, therefore the academic atmosphere is very pleasant. I would highly recommend it to students who are interested in gaining theoretical insight into the communication sector of the EU.

Furthermore, not only was I impressed by the outstanding academic and professional knowledge of the professors, but they were all friendly and approachable.
