Course Description

India is the most diverse place on earth and has been at the heart of the human story for thousands of years. Vibrant and fascinating, India is the perfect focus for an immersive virtual study tour. India is also increasingly relevant to student careers given its re-emergence as an economic superpower. 

All that said, India remains a country we know relatively little about. It has traditionally been overlooked because of its sheer scale, diversity and complexity. India is increasingly realising its potential as a tremendously creative and innovative culture and economy.

Our instructional design is founded on the belief that a Virtual Study Tour can actually go beyond what is possible in an in-person study tour. Collaborative online working is a key 21st century skill - even more so due to Covid-19. In many fields, this often takes place with colleagues based in India. Reimagining India VST offers unique experiences which are closer to the future careers of students working with India than any other study tour.
