We get to do everything by ourselves. The sense of freedom and responsibility here ensures that we learn beyond classrooms.
It has been a great experience to be at Manipal University for internship, a good opportunity to meet students from different countries.
Manipal is a place with so much diversity but I feel at home. There is no other place like Manipal.
I find Manipal a very cute little university town, with all comforts like a good gym and swimming pool. It has an international vibe.
The learning environment here is unique. The infrastructure is designed to facilitate hands-on learning. I love the life here as a student!
