    I was searching for top-ranked universities in Germany and applied to 6 of them. The reason behind opting for a college in Germany was that my relatives want me to visit them. Luckily my application got selected in 4 universities I applied for and I opted for the University of Freiburg among them as it was nearest to my residence there. The application was submitted online with a zero amount.

    Fees :

    The charges for my university are a bit more than that of other average universities. But I think it is worth it as the university is one of the top-ranked universities. I pay € 3000 as the tuition fee and € 310 as the semester fee every year.

    The student life in Freiburg is absolutely amazing, there’s something for everyone, from organized ski trips to the Alps to chess tournaments on campus. For me, student life is so much more than just studying and spending time in the student bar. I see it as an opportunity and a privilege to find new friends and build a network for the future.

    Fees :

    I pay euros 1300 for my whole course.
