The population proportions are quite balanced for international students and Muslim communities both. Most people are welcoming, open-minded and supportive. It’s a very nice diverse social environment that let you experience and grow as a human being and individual both. I love the fact people are so nice; one can mingle and yet have one’s own privacy here.
