“Despite the lack of uniformity for assignment marking and feedback, I am overall happy that I chose NTU. Most lecturers show high levels of knowledge in their respective fields, and they’re very flexible when it comes to arranging a quick feedback session.”

“The nightlife scene has surpassed my expectations. Even so, I think it would be good for the university to have more clubs and societies on-site to promote more social activity for those who don’t like going out at night.”
