OUR SUCCESS STORY
The lecturers are very helpful and they are very nice to students. I got tuition fee waiver for my studies and that has motivated me to study hard and compete with others.I am a shy person and I don’t talk a lot. But that has not stopped me from joining clubs and societies in IUKL. I believe my participation in these clubs and societies has developed my self confidence to mix around with others.
What I love the most about IUKL is the lecturers. They are very friendly and always willing to help the students to understand the subjects matter.The environment in IUKL also motivated me to study hard and get good results. It is very competitive and everyone seems to be good in their studies. I did not want to feel left out and I did well in my studies as well.As for the facilities, so far so good but I am hoping to see more up-to-date facilities for future students.
Graduates from this programme are suited for jobs in IT and associated industries. They can work as:
- Software / Web Programmers
