    University of Bremen is one of the best institutes in the world to study Marine Geology. Also the chance of living in a world class country in Germany was amazing. Tuition fee in Germany is negligible so you don't have to pay huge amounts of money for your education.

    Course Curriculum :

    Course syllabus is really well structured. There are many different modules and you can choose to do modules that suit you or you are interested in. Exams are very flexible. I had the chance to work with partner institutions and top scientists for my research thesis. Overall, it is a great place to increase your knowledge in Marine Geology.

    Since I belong to a middle-class family. Studying abroad was like a dream to me. I was searching for some cheap options in abroad to pursue my masters from. As Germany is not that much costly I applied to multiple colleges and got selected in three of them out of which I decided for this college. I had to pay € 75 for the online application.

    Course Curriculum :

    The masters course is broadly divided into four semesters. Each semester is unique. The subjects are providing in-depth knowledge needed by the emerging leaders of this field.
