Social Program
<p>Another special feature that attracts incomings to our country is our social programme and out various attempts to provide the incoming with a culturally enriching experience. In Months where Incomings are more than 10, A national Social program is surely provided. We try to provide our incomings with 2 variant NSPs to chose from in very variant parts of our country. Even in months where there are lesser incomings, we try our best to provide them with a National Social Programme however the cost would be relatively higher. Local Social Programmes to nearby towns, Welcome dinners, National food and drinks party, Scavenger hunts, food tours and other such things are planned at a local level by our active colleges according to their abilities. We also plan Research trainings, Global health seminars and other educational programs.&nbsp;However, It is by the voluntary work of students that's why there might be some varieties which are depending on particular local ground and month of the exchange.&nbsp;</p> <br /><br /><br />
Special Remarks
The student must keep checking their emails so that they do not miss the deadlines for social program registrations.
Application Form
Special Remarks
The student must pick a MAXIMUM of one project per Local committee and a MAXIMUM of two projects per city (For those cities with multiple LCs) The student can mention more than three project options or any preferences that they may have in the ''Message to NORE section'' so we can try our best to provide a student with their preference. However final provision will depend on the abilities of the hosting Local committee.
