“I started a bit confused, but son everything was right. We are a small group of students, so we have a very close relationship, like a family, because at the UCAM companionship is important. With regard to the professors, we have a very close and individualized attention, with tutorial support sessions (when things don’t go as you want). However, everything isn’t so easy, we have to work and study hard for every subject (politeness costs nothing).
We have both theoretical and practical lessons, but one of the most important factors for us is that most of our professors are occupational therapists, so they show us the real professional approach.
I hope to see you soon at UCAM.”
