The students said, “It has been our wish to visit Germany. Staying there for a longer duration is the most beautiful thing that has ever happened in our lives. We love the 

environmental conditions of Germany, it’s safety, beautiful infrastructure, easily accessible transport, and quiet. Life is pretty busy in Germany as in most Western world. But in general, there is quietness anywhere you go. We learnt a lot and made good friends during the period” The programme is governed by the partnership agreement signed between UNIVEN and DHBW in 2017. About six students have benefited from the scholarship in 2019 alone, three from UNIVEN and three from Germany.
