Site Institute students share their experiences about studying with us.


Home country: Brazil

I chose Site because it was my best option for my future and my career and here I am improving a lot of my Engineering skills and also my English because the teacher knows that English is not our first language. He always tries to make sure that all the students have an excellent understanding of everything.

The three best features of Site Institute are the infrastructure, good trainers and the contact with different cultures. I also love the friendly environment at all times.
