    7.5 /10

    I used to love reading physics during my school days. I had a penchant for this subject, and Germany was a nation I always wanted to study my bachelors in. Therefore, with the help of a consultancy, I came across this college and went ahead to fill the online application form.

    Course Curriculum :

    The curriculum is composed of lectures, seminars, and lab courses required to complete the studies. The initial semester introduces to the core of mathematics which is later on required to solve the equations of physics. Also, I have the option of taking up a minor subject. After building the foundation, the sophomore year comprises more of labs and practicals wherein experiments are carried out. I personally feel the curriculum is although extensive but that's what makes it interesting.
