More about the International Study Centre
It's lovely to be surrounded by people from so many different countries, with so many different cultures, so many different ethnicities. That's where I always wanted to be. I always wanted to be among people who are open-minded. That comes when you are in a place where there are students who are educated, who do not differentiate based on any religion, caste, or culture, anything. The openness is just amazing.
