  • Tips for Students with Disabilities

    Prejudice and the religious belief of karma leads to the belief by many that those with physical disabilities are being punished for actions in their previous or current life. Students with disabilities may not directly encounter discrimination, but may be treated with sympathy or pity. However, there are many organizations now committed to challenging these attitudes throughout the country, also advocating for support of those with learning and mental disabilities.

Have Tips about Study or Travel to India?

India is home over 1 billion people, making it the largest democracy in the world! Students are increasingly choosing to go abroad in India, and with a diversity of cultures, languages and arts, students of all fields can gain something different between New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and everything in between. 

No study abroad trip to India would be complete without a trip to the Taj Mahal. But of course, there is so much more depth to India beyond that -- from the beaches of Goa, to life near the River Ganges. Spend time eating local vegetarian cuisine, and watching a Bollywood film, and explore all the country has to offer by taking local trains to get around.
