“I have enjoyed my time here thus far, and I hope to enjoy the rest of my time here. My overall experience here has been very good, I have made a lot of friends here and most of them are from different countries. I think that CWU offers a highly inclusive environment where everyone can feel comfortable in. Most of my teachers are my mentors and they are always there whenever I need them. I would advise anyone to wonder CWU strongly for their international studies since it provides the best value for the tuition charged.”
“The things that I must enjoy from the Master in Geological Sciences is the high quality faculty and their connection with faculty from other universities around the world. The fact of being a small student group make the faculty pay you more attention, being one of their main priorities.”
