About 40 British students aged between 18 and 19 years will visit India under UK Prime Minister’s Global Fellowship Programme. The aim of the project is to give British students an exposure to multi-cultural environment and developments happening in developing countries in the 21st century.
The programme is made up of following three parts:
Cultural and linguistic immersion
Working on a research project in collaboration with their peers in a local school
Time as a guest of a global company, investigating how international business and its social responsibilities impact on the local communities
During their visit, the students will also get taste of the local Indian food as they will be staying with a local family for a week. Apart from exchanging cultural information with the local students, they will also get exposure to some of the popular Indian firms like HSBC, TCS, etc. and will understand their business working environment.
The students will also be invited to 10, Downing Street after their return, to share their experiences with the Prime Minister and people associated with the program.
