Why choose LET?

We continuosly gather anonymous feedback from our students to develop our programme. These area result from spring the other year, when our overall score in general feedback about the LET Programme was 4,56. (5 being the full score).

Here is some feedback provided by our students:

Various methods of work and assessment - studies are never monotonous, there is always something interesting and new
Individual approach and support from the teachers - it motivates a lot and makes us feel welcome
It has been a pleasure to study in such a well-organized, logical, learning orientated program
High levels of independence and choice within courses - develops own thinking and opinions, initiative, responsibility and self-organization
What I find most important is the connection between theoretical ideas and their practical implementation
