Pilot Scheme 2015

The first summer school organized by the International Office in India took place in the Himalayas in 2015. After a short visit to Delhi, the participants traveled to Dehradun and stayed in an Ashram in Anjanisain to learn more about North Indian culture and begin to practice Hindi. Including trips to the yoga-capital Rishikesh, Mussoorie, and Haridwar, the Summer School in the Himalayas was a full success. It will take place again in 2016.

Seven students of the Symbiosis International University accompanied by their Professor Ms. Khushbu Thadani came to Cologne from April 17th to 30th 2016. A vivid program was offered including excursions to neighboring towns, site visits, company visits and interesting lectures.

Our Indian friends experienced the typical German April weather – from sun via rain through to snow. But this could not stop anyone's vigor or excitement about the visit.

The Indian guests explored the University of Cologne and gathered basic knowledge of the German language, history and educational system. They also visited the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training in Bonn and got a lecture on the role of the German Chamber of Commerce in Cologne. 

India, we’ll come!“, eleven students of the Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Science and their supervisor Kristina Wiemann thought on Saturday, 27th February 2016. In the context of the CMIS Summer School they will attend an exciting program on “Indian Culture, Economy and Education System”. Next to side visits to urban as well as rural areas they visited a factory for Indian spices, a school as well as old ruins and picturesque gardens. 

Friendships were quickly made with students from Symbiosis International University. Luckily they didn’t had to wait for a reunion for too long. In April eight students from Pune came to Cologne to get to know the German “Culture, Economy and Education System” including the German weather, cuisine as well as great hospitality.
