University-sponsored trip that sent 50 students to Mumbai gains media attention
University of East London (UEL) staff and students recently appeared on BBC radio station the Asian Network to talk about a UEL-sponsored trip that over 50 students took to Mumbai in June.
The Mumbai2017 programme enabled the students to spend five days focusing on global awareness, social justice, sustainability, smart cities and inclusion.
Felicia Werner explained the motivation behind the trip.
Over 150 students applied for the experience. In the final group of 50, all academic schools were represented, as were all levels of study from undergraduates through to PhD.
