The India Centre

Student Projects

The India Centre promotes immersive journeys for students to cultural landmarks, which help them gain a deeper understanding of Jainism and Indian Philosophy through first-hand experiences. These excursions provide a unique opportunity for students to engage with India's rich heritage, visit sacred sites, interact with artists and artisan communities, and explore the socio-economic, religious, and ecological contexts that shape these traditions. The Centre's emphasis on experiential learning encourages students to break free from traditional perspectives, fostering a spirit of inquiry as they delve into the rich historical and philosophical landscapes. These on-site experiences not only enrich their projects but also cultivate a profound connection between theoretical knowledge and the vibrant realities of India's cultural tapestry.
