    Travelling is my passion. I love to travel and explore new cities. As I am a grown-up by that time. I have completed high school. I thought of pursuing my bachelor's from abroad. I opted for Germany as it demands less expenditure towards living as well as towards studies. I applied to 3-4 colleges out of which my application got selected in 2. I opted for this university after seeing it's rankings and reviews. The application for this college was submitted online without any application fee.

    Fees :

    I only have to pay a semester contribution of € 130 per semester. There were no extra tuition fee and any other fee.
