At Schiller, I was given the freedom to make decisions about my studies and career. I still feel the support and advice from my tutors – some of the most formative guidance I have ever received.
My time at Schiller has allowed me to live in different countries. Studying international topics in a practical learning environment is something you can't achieve at other universities.
My experience has been great. After working for a few years, I realized how up to date this learning system is. Also, the skills I acquired have helped me achieve professional growth.
My experience at SIU has been extraordinary and incredibly rewarding both at an academic and intellectual level, and at a personal growth level.
I have truly enjoyed my experience at Schiller! As an online student, I always felt the sense of community. The staff and entire faculty are very helpful.
