    It was my dream from an early age to study abroad. I just want to live somewhere else other than my home country. Also, another reason was the course which I want to pursue. There was no such course at my place to study. This helped me in convincing my family to send me abroad and finally they agreed. I approached a consultancy and they helped me in choosing a university with the preferred course. I applied via the uni-assist app by paying an application fee of € 70.

    Fees :

    I have to pay in a total of € 20000, due in four installments of € 4000 for the first and fourth semesters and € 6000 for the second and third semesters, respectively. This amount covers all costs associated with attending the curricular activities. It does not include costs for travel, visas, accommodation, obligatory health insurance, and living expenses.

    I wanted to take a further step ahead in my career. Therefore, instead of going to Canada or any other country, I went to study in Germany. Without any further adieu, I filled the application form and started the process of my admission well in advance.

    Fees :

    The tuition fees for the master program amount to 18,000 Euro. And I pay 6,000 Euro per semester. This per semester fee also includes the regular administration fees of 307.54 Euro per semester. The administration fees also include the so-called semester ticket for using the public transport Service in Berlin.
