    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    A STUDENT FROM FINLAND

    The University of Erlangen-Nuremberg is one of the universities that provides some fine curriculum related to Molecular Science. One of my cousins suggested me to join the University if in-case I plan to take on with Molecular studies. So when I planned to study abroad the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg was my top priority. Thus after receiving the offer letter from there I immediately took admission.


    Course Curriculum - 

    As Molecular science is a comparatively recent field of research encompassing biochemistry, molecular chemistry, medicine, and pharmacy thus it is interesting. The most cutting-edge scientific and technological developments are covered by the course. After completing this course at the bachelor's level I am planning to continue pursuing it at the masters level.
