India with its culture of “Atithi Devo Bhava” has been attracting foreign students for years. Typically, short-term mobility is used to enhance students’ personal understanding of the subject. International field trips give a different perspective of learning or research and provide a fascinating opportunity to study a specialized subject in contrasting environments.

Under short duration program, Amity University has been hosting foreign students under various mobility programs such as New Colombo Plan, UKIERI & Turing Schemes.

The New Colombo Plan
