            The best academic & social experience......

            Although heavily distracted with other international students the campus and surroundings were simply exceptional. All of the lecturers were passionate and really knew their subject matter and there was always a sense of community. The surrounding geography spoke for itself and I have not had a better experience overseas since my time at MSU in 1998/99.
