On arrival in India

Arriving in a new country and culture can be daunting. Preparation and organisation can make this difficult transition into a positive experience. Almost everyone who studies, lives or works abroad experiences some degree of differences. It is quite natural to feel overwhelmed, excited and confused all at once. For some people the "shock" hits them the moment they arrive at the airport, while for others it could be 6 months down the track.

Some surprises always await you when you arrive in a new place. You may not be able to find your favourite food or understand the local language. Housing arrangements, the way in which classes are conducted, the informal manner in which people greet one another, all may seem very strange and confusing. This is all part of the adjustment process. Try and remember that you are not alone, that there are many other students just like you and that the International Students' Office of Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University is here to help you in every aspect of your experience in India.

About India

India is the largest sub-continent and enjoys one of the best-educated human resource powers in the world. India is a land of wide diversity and yet unified. India is known to have a very vibrant political, social, cultural and educational standing. The Indian subcontinent with an age-old history is a civilization united by its diversity. Experience the richness of culture, the glory of the past, the turbulences and triumphs, the landmarks of each era, the achievements of each age and the legacy of the regime. As you walk through history, through India's geography, through the religious, linguistic and artistic chapters, your interpretation will be your very own discovery.

Indian civilization is one of the ancient civilizations in the world. Its Scriptures, Vedas and Upa-Nishada, written by different sages, embody the knowledge of the universe. While other contemporary civilizations perished in the course of time, Indian civilization, because of its strong foundation of rich culture and profound knowledge, has continued to live in spite of several foreign invasions. Even in those ancient days, when there was no convenient mode of transport, when travel was hazardous, people from far off countries travelled all the way to India to explore the myth of India. Its early seats of learning at Nalanda and Takshashila attracted knowledge-thirsty students from different parts of the world.

About Pune

Agakhan PalacePune has great historical tradition and an ideal geographical location. Almost two centuries ago it came on the political map as a place where strong nationalism started taking roots. Pune is located at an altitude of almost 2000 feet above sea level and partially hidden by the Sahyadri mountain ranges. The place has witnessed a spectacular movement and a tremendous growth and a rapid face-lift yet retaining its ancient and traditional character.

Students Testimonials

From the beginning days, when I was starting my degree from the college of Y.M., in India. I really enjoyed it, particularly the writing and the theory aspect, and I felt I could continue with this, when I came to India. Once I had decided that, I was going to study, I looked up different universities and colleges, that offered courses in commerce, and I chose the college of Yashwantrao Mohite in Pune. After going through prospectus and the university website, I felt that the content of the course, the education system and the way the course was structured, suited my needs. My aim and ambition is to be a writer, and I felt I might be able to realize it a bit better here.

ICCR students

Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR)

The Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), an autonomous organisation of the Government of India, was established in 1950. The objectives of the Council, as defined in its Memorandum of Association, are:

  • To participate in the formulation and implementation of policies and programmes relating to India’s external cultural relations
  • To promote cultural exchange with other countries and peoples
  • To promote and strengthen cultural relations and mutual understanding between India and other countries
  • To establish and develop relations with national and international organisations in the field of culture

English Language Certificate Courses (ELCC)

Over the years we have realised that quite a few students coming from non-Engish speaking countries need to upgrade their skills in English language. They experience numerous difficulties in understanding the language and in communicating in it. Although these students are otherwise brilliant, they are likely to lag behind in their studies mainly because of their deficiency in English language. With a view to assisting students and to develop their English language skills, the University has launched a course of Advanced Learning of English language in the International Students' Office.

Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University expects all students to be proficient in English. If your English proficiency does not meet the required standard, you may wish to study at the Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University's English Language Office before the commencement or during your degree or diploma course.

Study Abroad

Foreign Exchange Programs

Every person carves his way to be what he is, through his experiences. Also, a manager needs to be a team player. Maturity of accepting the differences in cultures not only polishes one’s managerial skills but also adds value to the personality as a whole. Don’t let yourself lose the opportunity of this life changing experience, just for a fear of being out of your comfort zone.

Adapting to the diversity of cultures and ways of learning helps add value to ones degree.

Though the list of benefits/ takeaways from a foreign exchange program is in exhaustive, the following are worth mentioning:
