The University encourages personal development because there is almost no limit to what courses you can take. It is open-minded because the courses include different study options and the teachers are willing to communicate. It is very personalised because although you have a major, you are not restricted in what direction you want to go. In one word, I would say you get a lot of freedom while studying at UTA.
