In Sup de Co there are many international students which allows you to prosper culturally, to know people with different perspectives of the life and to practice many languages. The facilities of the university are very nice; we have a great cafeteria as well as a great library. The teachers teach with motivation and are professional that they demonstrate to dominate the matter. The subjects are two weeks and it does that the pupil does not lose the thread. Likewise, the classes are very practical and this allows learning really the concepts.
