Ms. Christiana Agbeli
Bachelor of Public Health

My experience as a student of Texila American University has been one of my memorable school times. I liked the organization of the course outline and it activities in general which was less stressful and still served it purpose. The student mentors where very serviceable and always made me feel at home. Your customer service is top -notch. Aside the knowledge acquired from the lectures I become very enlightened in the area of ICT. It also taught me how to learn all by myself. I also learnt how to meet deadlines at all cost no matter how busy i get. All in all it was an amazing experience.
