This seems to be an interesting opportunity for the students of muslim majority countries and getting this sort of training in Germany is definitely a good learning for the selected candidates. It is clear that the Indian students are not eligible for this niche training as the name of India is not reflecting in the list of countries provided in this informative article. Another thing that I noticed is that in the eligibility criterion nothing is mentioned about the minimum educational qualification of the candidates. Though later it is made clear that the candidates have to mention their educational qualifications. It is rather a strange thing that no such thing like the minimum educational qualification is mentioned under the eligibility details. May be author may like to throw some light on this aspect.
