    After completion of my bachelor's, I was searching for colleges that offer programs about satellites and engineering related to it. I was unable to find the same at my place. So I searched for colleges in Germany as it has less cost of accommodation as well as for studies. I applied to this college online via the International office accessible at the official website of the college.

    Fees :

    I have to pay € 130 per semester as the semester fee. There is no tuition fee charged by the university.
