Pompeu Fabra University reviews

Mgcini Moyo
I am extremely disappointed at how the university is trivializing ,delaying beyond unexplained standards the giving of my final diploma certificate to date .I completed 2018 after 2 years of hard studying ,paid €8125 from my pocket.Passed but now it's two years without my final diploma.I feel that this is breach of students rights ,had l known this honestly l would not have studied in this university -to me UPF BSM has poor international student relations and must respect sacrifices and time made by international students by giving them deserved final degree certificates in time ...my life has been negatively affected by people who care less about what the contract to offer with international students. Am completely devastated and disappointed by this turn of events.I will thus always warn any person who wishes to study at UPF BSM to have a another option because of my experience....really dissatisfied.
