Who We Are
Manipal University is synonymous with excellence in higher education. Over 28,000 students from 57 different nations live, learn and play in the sprawling University town, nestled on a plateau in Karnataka’s Udupi district. The region has witnessed unparalleled development of education, banking and healthcare systems within India. This coexistence of traditional and contemporary India makes Manipal an ideal site for meaningful and enriching intercultural activities and dialogue.
The establishment of the Department of European Studies (DES) is aligned with the University’s commitment and belief in sans-border education and enhancement of common human knowledge. Academically, DES is the only one to offer an MA program in European Studies with a part of the studies in European partner universities. Recently, Manipal University became the first and only Indian university to receive the prestigious Jean Monnet grant towards a policy debate on higher education, Bologna process and internationalization of Indian universities.
The Bologna-IN project is in association with two prestigious higher education institutions in Europe.
