    I attended a workshop conducted by the Lulea University of Technology in my school. It was regarding the aerospace and its various fascinations. After enjoying the workshop I was very much fascinated by the term "space science". By the end of my secondary studies, I decided to pursue the Space Science course. After completing my upper secondary schooling and bachelors I applied for the university.

    Fees :

    I did not pay any single penny to study here as I am a Sweden resident.
