Experience Delhi

Studying in Delhi means having one of the most dynamic cities in the world at your fingertips. Wander through the narrow pathways of the Old City. Head to a street market and haggle over prices in Hindi. Learn from an expert on India’s economy at a public lecture. Spend Sunday evenings at India Gate, mingling with the crowd and snacking on cotton candy from a street vendor.

UW-Madison and CET

CET partners with University of Wisconsin-Madison to operate this program.

The best part: you don’t have to be a UW student to attend. Students from all schools are welcome to apply through UW and earn UW credit.

Daily Life in Delhi

In a city like Delhi, there are endless ways to join in local life. Connect with local NGOs, military organizations, and political leaders. Experience world-class museums, captivating dance performances, and the burgeoning contemporary art scene. Relax in the many parks and gardens found throughout the city. What’s on your Delhi bucket list?

The CET Center

You’ll study at the CET center in South Delhi, a residential, tree-lined neighborhood. After class, use the wifi, chat with the program staff, or fill up on local snacks before heading home to your host family.

Housing & Meals

You’ll live in a homestay with a local family. Watch a Bollywood movie with your host sister. Ask your host brother for help navigating the metro. And as for meals, get ready to write home raving about food! It won’t be long before you crave you host mom’s chola bhatura (spicy chickpea stew with fried bread). You’ll eat breakfast and dinner with your homestay family during the week. At other times, take advantage of Delhi’s many affordable international eateries.
