International Collaboration

Globalization has blurred the boundaries of nations across the world. This has consequently resulted in bringing people of different nationalities closer and hence calls for more tolerant citizens. Education, which gives a universal platform to all, needs to encompass the concept of ‘Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam’, which in Sanskrit means ‘the world is one family. To facilitate this, the international dimension has to be an integral part of the curriculum. The ‘International Collaboration’ will help to ‘Make (this world) a better place for you and for me.’

Today’s students face a future where boundaries are abstract and global learning is critical. Tomorrow’s citizens must be global communicators, equipped to participate successfully in project-based activities, and must have collaborative skills.

The global marketplace and the workplace in which today’s students will be involved are rapidly changing. Most jobs they will have in the future don’t exist today. With the increased focus on outsourcing and global competition, students must be prepared to compete and succeed by using creativity and ingenuity, and partner with people from all parts of the world. Knowledge of other cultures around the world leads students to understanding and compassion. That, in turn, creates students who take action to make a difference in resolving problems and changing the world to be a better place.

We at DPS-Bopal believe that educators need to find ways to connect students from different parts of the world so that they can learn together, share knowledge and develop cultural understanding and relationships. The school has an International Students Cell to help the students who are desirous of applying to foreign universities for undergraduate programmes. The International Student Award accreditation is also an effort towards nurturing global citizenship in the students. The school has partnered with, Burnside State High School, Queensland as a ‘Sister School’ for augmented global interconnectivity and cross-cultural competency beyond the curriculum
