Student Exchange Program

Student Exchange Programme



The student exchange programme is between a minimum of 1 month to a maximum of 6 months on a full-time basis. The programme throws light on quantitative & qualitative research methods, paves the way for understanding the foundational concepts of public health research, and highlights the role of systematic reviews in building high-quality evidence to inform health policy. We have had 4 exchange students this year (9th April to 5th May, 2016) from the University of Groningen, The Netherlands.

  1. Bart Alexander Vloedbeld worked on a qualitative research project titled “South to south international student migration: about the push and pull factors for international students at Manipal Academy of higher Education
  2. George Sevenhuijsen worked on a qualitative research project titled “Student migration: the push and pull factors of international students migrating to Manipal Academy of higher Education.”
  3. Mirthe Annegreet Heikens conducted a qualitative research study titled “South to south student migration: how do foreign students from the south build friendships and social networks at Manipal Academy of higher Education.”
  4. Erwin Reijenga conducted a qualitative research study titled “Student integration at Manipal Academy of higher Education: the experiences of student integration among international students from the global south.”
