            Never regretted the time spent in UUJ at both undergrad and postgrad level

            The staff at undergrad level were particularly outstanding. Always supportive, thoroughly knowledgeable in their field of expertise and even more importantly they were enthusiastic and this will always be a positive influence on the student body.
