My advice for the students:

I hear many students complaining about a particular course or teacher, I tell them that the university study is the student’s entire responsibility and not the teacher. Take advantage of online learning resources such as coursera.org to gain more knowledge. Avoid studying the course from the slides and try to read the text book. Many new graduates find it difficult to get a job. My advice for them and others is try to be an entrepreneur instead of waiting to get a job, try to think, invent new ideas and establish your own business. Many students and graduate hope to travel and live in Europe or America, from my experience I say that you need to work 50-60 hours/week during your undergraduate study to reach this goal. We live now in a small world and compete for a Master or PhD scholarship among students from around the world.
