I once sent an email when struggling with a particular class and just had to seek out help so i sent the school an email and they replied om the same day! I was shocked at how fast the response was since in most cases, major institutes may take time. This proved to me that DSM values their students. The class platforms are easy to navigate through and supported with video guides as well based on the course that i was studying. Studying from home has been the best experience. Thank you DSM! Keep it up! – Reanetse Motaung
