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.

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.

The ongoing partnership between the University of Cologne and BVIEER Pune offered yet another outstanding cultural and academic experience for eleven students from the International Master of Environmental Science and Law program at the University of Cologne, as the students traveled to India in early March. The Cologne students collaborated with approximately forty students from BVIEER Pune as they journeyed to Periyar Tiger Reserve (PTR) in the South Indian state of Kerala for a research excursion. The students gained valuable field experience as they answered various research questions about PTR by interviewing local villagers living in the immediate area surrounding the park.
