Germany is a European and developed country where college students get many opportunities and facilities to learn their interested subject. University life differs based on the college where you attend, the location, the classes’ size and what courses you decide to take. In my case, I was learning remote sensing, GIS in every day life. The university schedule is varied than the traditional high school schedule. Actually, there was more flexibility with my classes and I was happy to learn GIS during various lectures. In college, you’ll probably need to take a class, but you could have many choices, which would be offered on different days, at different times, and for different durations. In the college life, you can take own any decision need not help for junior or senior. In my case, I had good choice of selecting courses. I was always declined to learn in the field of GIS.
Similarly, the college schedule is that normally you have more opportunities to explore your interests and passions. I have possibility get involved for GIS as extra curricular activities too. Like, you will be picking a major that will decide the types of classes you will specialize in. Only you think about your schedule as a pyramid. Your first year and inexperienced year students, you’ll take more general education classes and a few classes in your major. But during your junior and senior level year, you’ll take fewer general education classes and more classes in your major.
College is like high school in that you will have many opportunities to get involved by joining different teams or clubs, organizations, and maybe even by getting chance a part-time job. I had freedom to join for extra activities. I was more in the way to join GIS and remote sensing research cluster at university rather than jumping in the club. You can easily make your schedule get crazy with friends meetings, sport practice, band practice, play rehearsal, work hours, trekking, tours etc. There is freedom in college students but every college students should not forget their responsibility, college rule regulation and limitation of students. Although I am not from geography background, I love to study remote sensing, GIS and other subjects in this field.
