you will meet staff and students from all over the world.

"The courses are disciplined and competitive. Professors are very helpful and the library is the best place to study/hang out/discuss and pretty much do anything and everything. But the seller is the level of diversity in the class, not just in terms of nationality but also in terms of educational background, age, experience, geographical and lingual background. When you look at things from one perspective and when you look at them from many different perspectives, you learn an extraordinary amount."
