FAQ :


1. How is it different than a normal holiday abroad with the parents?

NEED OF THE TEENAGER: Going abroad with parents and going out with friends is a completely different experience for a teenager. The summer program has been carefully designed by keeping in minds the need for the independence sought by the teenager with caution to ensure complete safety under supervision of MOKSH staff supported equally by the Host University guidelines abroad.


VALUE FOR MONEY: Today going out to Europe for 2 weeks would cost around Rs. 2.50 Lac per person for a 2 week holiday. Within the same budget, if the student learns the local language, understands the local culture and do not miss the Sightseeing opportunities, it could really be worth much more! What is the priority of a student? Is it staying at a star category hotel accompanied by parents or going to the same destination with friends and stay within University premises?


PACKAGED TOUR Vs. SUMMER PROGRAM: The packaged tour is a rush-rush one and is designed to make sure that the parent do not miss anything within a short time period. Summer program is more relaxed and customize to suit the minds of the student. For example, the student who is not interested in Museum would have to go through the process in a packaged tour. So after all, its not about only cost but is it you really wish to do during your stay abroad?

ADVENTURISM AND CONFIDENCE: The world is changing constantly. People from western countries have shown great ambitions and adventurism.

SELF EXPERIENCE: MOKSH has designed programs in various continents for the students to go through 4 continents and at least 10 countries to choose from wherein the students would be able to self experience the living for a short summer program.


GLOBAL INTERNSHIPS: Further, there is a chance for few early birds to participate in Global Internship (Not paid but recommended for experience) programs for enhancing their skills and ultimate Resume.


SELECTION OF PG PROGRAMS: This exposure is also expected to help them to select the right country, best university with full knowledge to complete their Masters or Doctoral programs abroad.
