    I at the university, am always encouraged to participate in a vibrant, faculty-led research program. I am also getting hands-on knowledge at the university. I applied to the university with the help of a JUPAS form. This centralized form helped me to apply to some other universities as well. I also paid $550 for the Entry Permit Fees.

    Fees :

    I paid around $140,000 per year.
