“During the past 9 months I have spent in DIFC, I fully enjoyed studying in an international environment which helped me to understand others with different backgrounds. Not only did DIFC teach me to develop academic skills, but also did it help me be aware of my ability and more confident with myself. In particular, having a personal tutor was absolutely helpful for me to overcome any difficulties or distractions you might have during the study.”
