"My time in Basel did not only meet, but really exceeded my expectations of studying and living abroad. I would absolutely encourage every student with the opportunity to go on an exchange semester to seize it!", says Srishti, MA student from O.P. Jindal Global University, Sonipat, India. From September 2023 to February 2024 she spent a semester at the Europainstitut. The exchange was facilitated as part of the partnership agreement between the Europainstitut and the Jindal School of International Affairs. In an interview by Niamh O’Neill, Srishti tells us about her experiences in Basel.

Why did you decide to come to Basel for a semester abroad?

I was delighted to have the opportunity to spend a semester abroad at one of our partner universities in the framework of my Master’s studies. Europe was particularly attractive to me, and I had heard so many positive things about Switzerland from my peers that Basel was an easy choice. It also made sense with regard to my personal research interests and my MA program in Diplomacy, Law and Business at Jindal. The specific approach taken by European Global Studies interested me greatly – the European vantage point offered a different perspective on global issues from the context I was used to from India.
