    AN INDIAN STUDENT'S REVIEW

    My dad is a University of Bayreuth graduate. Thus I too wanted to study from the same university. Apart from this while searching about the university I also came to know that it will enable me to develop my abilities to the fullest and will help me to lead extraordinarily successful outcomes while studying here. So when I was appearing for the high school final exam I searched the course of my interest and applied to it. I applied to it with the help of an online application.
