Study Abroad: Delhi, India

My name is Naing.

I’m Tania.

And I study abroad in Delhi, India.

And I studied abroad in New Delhi, India. The first thing I noticed in Delhi was how dynamic everything is.

Organized chaos. That it’s this place of a lot contradictions. Nothing makes sense, but it all works so perfectly.

But the traffic is chaotic, but there’s a way to that chaos. It’s such a crowded city and there’s so many people, but everyone is so aware of one another. I really miss just interacting with a lot of the fruit vendors, and just having conversations with them, and everyone acts like they’ve known each other forever, and it’s so refreshing and so nice.

When I was going to the northeastern part of India, to Darjeeling. Everything is different, it’s different from Delhi, from any other part of India. I really appreciated my experience there. Because that kind of diversity I think is very hard to come by.

I don’t think anything will ever surprise me or jar me.

The growth, the things that I learned, all the different moments big and small really helped me get to where I am now. And I don’t think that would have happened had I not gone abroad.

Someone said to me once that going to India prepares you to go to the rest of the world.

And I found that to be incredibly true.


It has long been associated as a capital city to many different kingdoms and populations whose architectural and cultural influence is still an important influence on modern Delhi’s culture. With a metropolitan population of 16.7 million residents, today’s Delhi is a bustling and diverse city home to both ancient monuments—including three World Heritage sites—and a modern arts, business, and culture scene.

The School in India is based at St. Stephen’s College, Indraprastha (IP) College for Women, and Lady Shri Ram College for Women (LSR), all of which are part of the larger University of Delhi. Female students may pursue classes at any of the colleges, while men will study at St. Stephen’s. The colleges are renowned, and preeminent institutions of higher education in India, with offerings in the humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences.

The language of instruction at the colleges is English, so there are no language prerequisites at the School in India, but all students will study Hindi while abroad.
