Many Brown students choose to study abroad in their junior year. Through the Office of International Programs, students choose the program which bests suits their academic interests. Brown’s exchange program with St. Stephen’s and Lady Sri Ram Colleges sends students to St. Stephen’s and Lady Sri Ram and receives faculty from both colleges. As an exchange program, Brown’s program in Delhi differs from some other study abroad programs in India which have study centers and living quarters, and provide their own courses. Students on the Brown program take regular Indian college courses, independent studies with professors, and follow the normal academic schedule of St. Stephen’s or Lady Sri Ram.
