Inter-religious studies

Every week we also focus on one of the major religions of India. We start with Hinduism and work our way through New Age, Buddhism, Sikhism, Islam, Jainism and Zoroastrianism. We believe that understanding the faiths of other people is vital as the world becomes smaller and our neighbours and friends can be from different backgrounds and faiths. We finish off every week with a visit to a religious site that corresponds to the religion we have studied.

Cultural studies

Throughout the course you will be exposed to a lot of different aspects of the Indian culture. This will not happen sitting in the classroom but as students interact and build relationships with local people. Interspersed in the course we include at least one camping trek in the Himalayas and if there are festivals or weddings we take our students to those as well.
