UCAM Experiences

'The best part about the whole degree and the experience at UCAM was how forthcoming and welcoming everyone was'

Anna Marlies Serafín, Germany

''It was an honor to meet every professor and assist in the insightful, engaging, and eye-opening lessons. Each professor had a unique story to tell, and this really touched me as an individual who always looks forward to understanding people and their backgrounds.''

''I was impressed by the highly intercultural exchange that happened between all of us, indirectly sometimes. We were not constrained by barriers and prejudice, but instead, the flow was extremely flexible.'' [Full testimonial]

Caryl Abi Khalil, Lebanon
