What our students said about Rabat

Rating: 5/5


Rabat is very safe city. The transportation system is quite good too compare to other cities. There are a lot of parks and I was able to see a lot of stars at night times. All the daily necessities and groceries are quite cheap. If you love coffee, try to having them in the local coffee places. There are many pretty places that you can make out your own photo shoot. As a student, the safety part is the most concerned. I can assure that Rabat can receive highest score in that part.

Be placed in a one-to-one programme in the absence of other students of my level. Good teacher but with very limited resources.
Does not match the flattering description on internet, based probably on the one in Amman. Clean but deteriorated rooms in accordance to the building state. It is unfortunate that I can not attach photos to my text. No cultural activities offered. I can take of myself but it must be a shame for younger and less autonomous students.
