Generally speaking, it’s a great School with beautiful amphitheaters, classrooms and other facilities required for a modern college.
The location is very convenient, just a few steps away from the local bus station. It is about a 5 minute drive to the downtown. The parking is descent. It’s not paved entirely but, there are plenty of parking lots (well sometimes they fill up quickly).
The Labs are equipped with high-end Computers and are enriched in all the software as well hardware.
The WiFi is usually slow if you’re not near the router or close to a computer lab, but there are many to choose from in the building, and they are all well stocked with the latest technology.
As for the supporting staff, I have nothing but praise. There is always someone helpful at the reception-desk who can answer questions and point you in the right direction.
The teaching and learning, in my opinion are not the primary goals of the school considering the amount of money you must invest. The price is around $3.000,00 (for a part time studies) per year which is certainly too high for what you get. Bad school in terms of getting a quality education. They are more focused on issuing degrees (read money) than real education. I guess that’s why Macedonian Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) ranked UACS as 10th ranked university in Macedonia.

The teachers … hmm actually there are only two teachers for the whole school, which means 30 subjects and three years in total. In addition these two are also dean and vice-dean of the school. I find it little weird but not really so much creepy.
As for the books; well unfortunately there are no books originally written by the professor responsible for a particular subject. Instead the students learn from power-point presentations converted in PDF format so no books written by the professors which is a common practice in the better ranked universities.
Of course, you may borrow some foreign book from the library but the one that your teacher recommended you usually contains nothing that will be contained in the final exam. For instance they told me to borrow “C++ How to Program – 1303 pages” which is way beyond the knowledge i needed to pass “Fundamentals of programming”.
So just use the materials attached on the portal and shut up.
If you are still in a baby state of living, have rich parents and need to be taken care of, this school will fit your lifestyle perfectly. If you are an adult like me and expect to be treated like an adult stay far away from this university you will not get what a healthy, intelligent, and SELF-motivated individual needs. Instead you will be forced to be coddled in a paradoxical guilt driven way which is the heart of UACS.
Hope this helps someone
