Are you interested in other cultures? Did you ever look at your own culture from outside?

India is one of the best destinations for that, because India is different. History, region, food, society, industry, yoga,… all is very different.

During our two-weeks course you will explore selected parts of Indian life. Besides of Delhi we will be traveling to Agra, to River Ganges and to Jaipur. Together with selected Indian students from our partner institution in New Delhi you will be working on your own field study topic. You can apply tools from the textbook about “Intercultural Awareness” in real life. Your project work will be supported by Indian teaching staff.

International trainers will guide you through the learning process - starting from the preparation period at home until your final presentation in India.

For 14 years more than 300 part-time-students from FHV have been traveling to India for their studies. An experienced team in India gives you a save frame for your trip.
