“I had mixed feelings about coming to DIFC but time here was truly amazing. The staff here are the most wonderful staff I have ever come across. Looking back, there are so many things I would have done differently without the help of my teachers. When I first came to DIFC, I was very quiet and shy but the staff made the environment comfortable to open up.My advice to future students coming to DIFC is start doing your coursework and studying on time, be yourself and ask for help whenever you need because youhave the best team watching out for you.”
