Minds Abroad is a US-based organization that conducts study abroad programs in China and India for both individual students and also customized faculty-led groups from college and universities across the US and Europe. As an integral part of our faculty-led study abroad programs, participants travel to various places of cultural and historical interest for language and culture immersion. Our programs are a blend of morning classes, afternoon volunteering or language exchange sessions, evening cultural activities, and weekend excursions to sites of educational value. Minds Abroad takes care of all arrangements- ranging from in-country orientation, to accommodations, meals, travel excursions and chaperoning. For faculty-led groups, teachers can travel for free.

Our programs can begin anytime during the year and our philosophy is about 'learning by doing'. In addition to classes, we identify service learning opportunities for interested participants at local non-profit organizations with which we have collaborated. We can also arrange for fun-filled, hands-on extracurricular activities including Tai Chi, calligraphy classes in China and painting and craft classes in India. These help students gain an in-depth understanding of Chinese life and culture.


China Programs


Through our China programs, students will not only explore a new world but can also earn academic credits through our Chinese language university partner. While in Kunming, China, during weekdays, students will attend classes on Mandarin Chinese in the mornings. They will either engage in volunteering activities or participate in language exchange sessions with local Chinese students in the afternoons. Volunteering will primarily revolve around working with underprivileged children in local non-profit organizations. A one-on-one Chinese/English language exchange session with local students can do a lot to supplement language skills that students acquire in class.

As a part of our China program, students, over the weekends, will visit fast growing metropolises, UNESCO World Heritage sites and participate in rural homestays. We believe this diversity of excursions not only gives participants a balanced perspective into the rapidly modernizing urban China and also rural society where the majority of the people in China still live. Some of the places of interest that students will visit are large coastal cities of Beijing and Hong Kong as well as the ancient city of Dali.

India Programs

In India, our programs are based in Kolkata, the country's 3rd largest city and a place considered by many as the country’s cultural capital. Kolkata is in eastern India and is only a 2.5 hours flight from Kunming. As an integral part of our programs in India, students will explore major metropolitan cities like Mumbai (Bombay), Delhi and Kolkata.
In both China and India, students will participate in cultural activities to get an in-depth understanding of the ways of life of the local people. These activities include attending performances from local ethnic musicians and dancers, visiting local museums, and going to sites of local interest.
