KSU Community speaks

Živilė Maldeikytė
Graduate

I liked the quality of the studies, and the professional teachers team the most. Most of them were professionals in their field and practitioners working in a specific field who could provide up-to-date, relevant, and useful information. In the lectures it is possible to discuss with teachers freely and creatively. The practical work was also asked in an interesting and rewarding way. I personally not only gained communication knowledge, valuable experience, but also met many great and promising people who were my classmates. So far, I recommend KSU studies to everyone as innovative and non-traditional institution.
