Students Exchange Program From Russia
The year 2015 marked an important year for D.Y. Patil school of Dentistry as not only did our college complete 25 years but it also marked a step taken by our college to embarking on greater heights by starting its first student exchange program to accord the students of D.Y. Patil with other colleges. Continuing into 2016, the college welcomed another exchange student into its fold.
Elvira, was welcomed into the family of D.Y. Patil School of Dentistry on the 6th of February from Russia. She was not only amazed by the college campus and the facilities being provided to the students of D.Y. Patil but also felt a part of the community with ease. The Staff and Students of the college made her feel welcomed in India and the college.
She attended every department with great excitement and also got to attend the Integriteeth lectures alongside a 3 day Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Conference “Implantech”.
She had very positive things to say about the college and about the new friends she has made here.
“Student Exchange has introduced me to a country no holiday or gap year could. I didn’t visit India, I lived in India. An exchange doesn’t only give you 15 days of a new culture, language and country, but it gives you a lifetime of opportunities. The food amazed me and I fell in love with it. The friends I’ve made have now been part of my life. I’ve promised friends at the university that we would have a reunion – we can’t wait to see each other again. I can’t wait to tell everyone back home of my experiences in India. What you get after 15 days in another country will last a lifetime. I would also like an opportunity to get to host someone from this University in Russia and show them my college and Country.”
