Want to go to India?

How would you like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity travel to India this summer to experience a new culture and gain important leadership skills?

UEL and its Noon Centre for Diversity and Equality in Business have teamed up to provide bursaries for 50 students to take part in a dream trip to Mumba in June.

The bursaries will cover nearly all expenses - including the course fee, airfare, acommodation and food.

The only requirement is that participants on the trip be current UEL students - and that means YOU.

You don't need to be enrolled on a leadership-type academic programme or even have any prior leadership skills.

Selection for the trip wll be based purely on the quality of your application.

Please note that the deadline for application forms to be submitted is 7 April, so don't delay.

The trip to Mumbai takes place from June 5-9. During the visit, you will team up with local university students for an extensive tour of the city, including visits to NGOs and other important organisations.

UEL and Indian students will also be asked to work together to find solutions to some of the problems facing Mumbai, which is India's largest city with an estimated population of 18.4 million.

You will learn how to work across boundaries with people who have different ideas to find common ground and a common purpose.

The goal is to immerse you in Indian culture, taking you out of your comfort zone and helping you develop 'cultural intelligence' - the ability to function and thrive in different cultures.

To access an application form, visit the study abroad section of UEL's website. You can download the form from the 'Short-term schemes' section.

And remember...the deadline for applications is 7 April.
