    My elder sister has done her Masters from this university and as it is a very affordable University she recommended me to check on this university and take admission here after a deep research I decided to take admission here and paid an application fee by applying through the online portal of the college.

    Course Curriculum :

    In my course, I was taught about English literature from a very basic to the advanced level I was taught everything including the proper grammar to be used.

    I opted particularly for this college because the course which I wanted to pursue was not available in my country. This was the one and only reason behind opting for this college. I read the reviews and searched a lot and finally decided that I can go to this college. I applied to this college via uni-assist for which I have paid an application fee of € 75.

    Course Curriculum :

    My course offers theoretical and methodological knowledge, analytical concepts and applicable skills in the field of management and conservation of natural resources. The curriculum enables us to develop a basic understanding of the interaction of natural and social systems as well as sustainable use of resource systems recognizing their potential vulnerability and protection requirements.
