An amazing faculty and student body. Azim Premji University supports budding development practitioners and policy makers by encouraging students to think deeply and seek answers rather than mugging up theories. Discussions conducted in classes allow us to connect with real life examples/incidents, helping us understand things with a broader perspective. Frequent visits to the field allow us to connect with real life, the theories that have been taught in class. In addition to stimulating academic environment, students at Azim Premji are encouraged to take part in various extracurricular activities through clubs that help nurture one's interests ; such as dance, music, bird watching etc. Weekly colloquiums and "Kaapi aur Charcha" sessions give us the opportunity to interact with a wide variety of people, ranging from sociologists, activists, NGO's etc Azim Premji is "THE" place for anyone who is interested in making a difference.

Deciding to pursue the MA Development programme at Azim Premji University has been one of the best decisions I have taken. Since the first day, it has been an enriching experience in all aspects, be it academics, co-curricular or extra-curricular activities. The best part about the University in my opinion is twofold - one is embracing diversity and the second is setting up numerous support systems to ensure that students are on the same page. Since students come from about 26 states in India from diverse backgrounds, conversing in English is considered to be a challenge by many. But this is not thought to be a drawback at the university. Classroom discussions are interesting and engaging as students are encouraged to speak in the language in which they are proficient. The course structures of all programmes are also designed in a way that incorporate not just the theoretical but also the practical aspects. This makes it interesting and unique. The faculty in my opinion is excellent and also quite approachable. There is one thing that is you are encouraged to do here, ask more questions and speak up. Every opinion matters. No one will ever refrain you from asking questions and more importantly, there are no such things as 'stupid questions.' And that, according to me, is the best thing that any university can do.
