“My experience with DIFC has been exciting and all-around amazing. Since the beginning of the course, the staff and students services team have been very supportive, especially during the time of pandemic. You get pretty busy as the course is quite intense, so my advice would be to learn how to manage your time well or else you will be easily overwhelmed by the amount of work. But, overall I had a good time and really enjoyed my course, thanks to my classmates and dedicated teachers.”
