Broadcasting students have returned from a 2.5 week tour in India, as part of new connections between ECU and Indian universities.

Ten broadcasting students, led by Broadcaster and lecturer David Smith, got the opportunity to collaborate with two Indian universities, Apeejay Stya University in New Delhi and MET University in Mumbai.

The first week was spent working at Apeejay Stya University, creating story ideas that related to Australia and India, followed by a trip to see the world-famous tourist attraction The Taj Mahal.

Students also participated in local language and a number of cultural activities, including visits to a school, charity organisations, temples, world heritage sites and rural villages.

Students then flew to MET university in Mumbai. Here they were successful in creating a documentary.

The tour provided broadcasting with unforgettable experiences, allowing them to work in a country with more than 30 official languages and one billion people, that is well-known for its diversity.
