    UNIVERSITY OF FREIBURG; STUDENT'S LIFE

    The student life in Freiburg is absolutely amazing, there’s something for everyone, from organized ski trips to the Alps to chess tournaments on campus. For me, student life is so much more than just studying and spending time in the student bar. I see it as an opportunity and a privilege to find new friends and build a network for the future.


    Course Curriculum - 

    This course provides me the ideal opportunity to expand my knowledge of physics along with the practical concepts. I like to immerse myself in aspects of applied physics and gain new knowledge. Advancing my methodical skills and doing my own research is one such another new thing for me that I am learning from the course.
