  • UOG is my home university when I'm doing my master's degree. This campus is really amazing and breathtaking. Wondering around this well known place, you'll feel like living in an ancient castle. It's established around 1451 with more than 500 years history. Hope everything is going well for this great cradle of world changers.
  • My daughter signed up for post-graduate studies and we were quoted a price of $20K. After being in the school they are asking for another $4K. She has sent in a letter which was ignored and no one will call her back. BEWARE International students! They raise prices and are non-accessible to discuss.
  • The building looks great and has a great courtyard. Makes you feel small walking around there, and as many others said, give you a kind of Harry Potter movie kind of scenery. We visited the university twice during our stay, both times graduations were going on. Many students were there with their families taking pictures. We felt a bit out of place, so didn’t walk through the building, just had a quick peak. Well worth a visit. Wished that my university looked anything like this!
  • As a tourist, it's a nice place to go. The architecture of the building is amazing.
  • My friend went there nd sent pics. WoW seems wonderful place to visit..@ alizeeshan1472@gmail
