Learning Outcomes

IndoGenius Virtual Study Tours have been designed to help students develop the following

  • Discover, assess and articulate the significance of India within the wider human story - past, present and future.

  • Recognise local and global challenges faced by India and how they align with, and impact, Australia.

  • Describe ways India solves problems through different approaches to innovation – from the global business delivery model to low-cost medical devices.

  • Apply analysis of Indian case studies to their degrees by learning directly from guest presenters at companies and social enterprises. Especially with regard to innovation in the 21st Century and the Indian connection to many careers.

  • Gain experience working in digital environments by applying varied techniques to locate and evaluate information from Indian sources; collaborating in virtual environments; and communicating through visual as well as written presentation.


  • How often do the VST courses run?

    Once every few months! Our confirmed 2022-23 start dates are: 15 Nov to 23 Dec 22 Jan to 4 Feb 8 Jan to 18 Feb

  • How do I qualify for credit?

    Eligible students from our 21 partner institutions have ways to get academic credit for our course. Either via your own university or by enrolling cross-institutionally at CQUniversity or Adelaide. Once you apply our team will be in touch with your study abroad office to confirm your eligibility for funding and credit.

  • How do I qualify for NCP funding?

    You may be eligible for funding if you are: 1) An undergraduate student 2) An Australian citizen 3) Have not previously received an NCP Short Term Mobility Grant for a virtual program. 4) Are able to receive academic credit for the course. We will be able to verify all of this with our contacts at your university once you have applied.

  • Can I take an IndoGenius course even if I don't qualify for the NCP funding?

    UG and PG students are able to take the Indian Century course if they enroll at the University of Adelaide.

  • Will I be able to receive a future NCP grant to visit India?

    Theoretically yes once travel restrictions are lifted and you are still eligible to apply for the Reimagining India study tour in India even if you have from the virtual tour. In fact you will benefit even more from the actual tour to India if you have taken the virtual one.
