I have enrolled with Texila American University in 2015 Ph.D. in nursing.During my four years of working and studying was not an easy task but the university makes me feel like a student away from the classroom at home.The Student Coordinators provided the adequate support needed at all times. Thanks to all of my Student Coordinators especially Ms. Cinthana and Santhiya. My experience will remain a lifelong one and the knowledge received. Moreover, an experience I am willing to share with any student.The fees payment was very flexible and manageable. It is a well-accredited university with excellent customers services.Thank you Texila American University for the journey you you had taken me on, it was well spent and successful.

My experience with Texila was an excellent one. Texila exposed me to the use of Skype, Joinme, Web ex for communication and conferences. I learnt a lot through the E-Journal, E-Conferences, E-Books, and the uploaded modules, and weeklytests. The support of my Student Mentor, Academic coordinator, and the E-Journal team was excellent. At the end, I was able to bag my PhD in Nursing. I give kudos to TAU.
