Programme Aim

Sharda University offers a 2-week Indian Heritage and Cultural Experience Programme for international students who wish to visit India and experience Indian life and culture.

The programme will impart working knowledge of Indian culture through Yoga, Meditation, cultural workshops and visits to historical and spiritual places of interest in India.

Why India?

Have you been dreaming about a country that can take your breath away? Then, India is your answer! More a continent than a country, India will activate your spiritual senses and offer you a mind-blowing experience you will never forget!

India, the world’s largest democracy is the cultural, commercial, and financial hub of South Asia. With a population of over 1.2 billion, it is the fourth largest economy in the world. Whatever you are looking for, India can give it to you; hiking in the world’s highest and most picturesque mountains, the Himalayas; riding camels in Thar, the Great Indian Desert; safari in the deep jungle where the tigers roam and rhinos run wild; sunbathing in tropical beaches. The Indus Valley Civilization with a recorded past of five thousand years will thrill you! Some of the oldest religions on the globe were born here – Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism. Equally enthralling monuments – forts, palaces, temples, memorials – line its historic face. Dances from the past survive as living arts even today. Traditional music blows your mind. There is vibrancy to the culture, both ancient and modern. Modern India can fascinate you also with its 21st century metropolises, 5 star hotels, air-conditioned surface transport, hi-speed trains, networks of domestic airlines, and modern shopping malls. And of course don’t forget the food, Indian (OMG! the variety!) and international. India is a country that many people wish to see and those who have seen it wish to return again and again.
