One of our flagship co-curricular activities, the academic tour takes our students to premier institutions across the country wherethey attend lectures by experts, explore further career and research opportunities and also develop inter-cultural competence living with thelocals. These visits include English and Foreign Languages University(EFLU), Hyderabad, Central Institute of Indian Languages(CIIL), Mysuru,Himachal Pradesh University, Shimla etc. As most of our students come from socio-economically disadvantaged groups, this is the onlyopportunity at gaining exposure for many.
