"The academic experience I had while studying Westford gave me a new perspective. I have gained the skill to study, write and express myself. Multicultural immersion of students was also an advantage, where everyone seems to have a unique story and a different background. The Westford Faculties shared not only his knowledge but the experience of life as well, the way of teaching and support for the students was outstanding."
