Section: Fellowships and Exchanges
Nearly 10 per cent of Edinburgh students study abroad at some time during their undergraduate career and in return Edinburgh teaches a large number of exchange students in single discipline courses relating to South Asia from a variety of European Universities each year.
There is a Socrates Exchange scheme link with the South Asia Institute at Heidelberg University (the largest such centre in Europe) which enables an annual exchange of students wishing to specialise in studying South Asia as part of their honours curriculum in any degree subject. It also open to postgraduates. Applications should be made to the Director of the Centre. You may also contact Stefan Ecks, Social Anthropology, and Lesley Balharry, International Office, for advice on this programme.
A student exchange programme is currently being trialed with Delhi University. Presently this is confined to single and join degree students in SPS, but if successful, it is hoped that this may be expanded into a scheme covering multiple Schools and encompassing up to six students each year. Details are available from the CSAS Director and from Helen Leitch in the International Office.
The Indian National Trust for Arts and Cultural Heritage (INTACH UK Trust) offers financial support for students who as part of their study need to travel to India to undertake research. Awards are made twice yearly. Details are available at: http://blog.icomos-uk.org/intach-uk-trust/.
