Student review
It was one of the most epic experiences of my life. Loved the lecturers because they listened to my ideas and thoughts. They wish I returned to complete my bachelor's degree however due to finances I'm unable to do so. I'd love to return to cdu in 2020 to continue the degree and by 2026 ,I'll have a PhD in Psychology.
