At iMEP, professors are not only teachers, they are also our friends who can share life story with. In addition to academic problems, I would always like to talk with professors about whatever happy or tough things in my life.
iMEP is absolutely a warm big family. The faculty here at iMEP are very tolerant, friendly, willing to listen, and responsible in teaching. They often guide us patiently and there are always detailed comments on our homework. The iMEP staff also cared about students a lot that they prepared each of us a nice health kit during the pandemic.
