“The Aguntum Summer School was a course in field archaeology. The emphasis of the program was on learning at the excavation site, using electronic devices for photogrammetry. With remains that are older than two thousand years – it was a great learning space for a beginner in archaeology. GESP introduced me to the very possibility of attending a Summer course in another university.” Jatin Abhir UG23
“The research programme in humanities offered an unparalleled experience of working in various hands-on projects and exposed me to a unique cultural mindset.” Priyal Sethi UG23
“Getting the scholarship and the opportunity to spend a part of my summer at the University of Cambridge was an experience more magical than I could have ever anticipated. The courses accelerated my enthusiasm in physics and helped me in shaping my academic interests. The highlight was knowing about the groundbreaking advancement in astronomy and learning about the present day research in high energy physics. Walking through medieval streets surrounded by fine architecture and museums and spending evenings near the mathematical bridge were truly special. I come back with new friendships, exceptionally beautiful learning experiences and more appreciation for home cooked food.” Anjali Waghmare UG23
