International students will be working with project teams that can be located in any of Amrita campuses, and accordingly this will be the base location for the international students. The Amrita project guide will be the main point of contact for International students in the campus. International students will be given a separate accommodation in one of Amrita campuses. They will have access to all campus facilities (canteen, library, clinic, gym etc.) but will also have to follow all the campus rules and regulations.
In the villages, accommodation will be arranged either in Amrita educational institution facilities if there is one near the village, or in a designated house in the village. Most sites will have a cook and a kitchen who will prepare fresh food specially for the project team; however, this may vary from site to site. Some sites may even have general and convenient stores so participants can cook their own meals.
All arrangements and logistics will be made by the Live-in-Labs® project team to ensure safety of the students. However please note that depending on the situation of the village, participants will have to adapt to very basic facilities available : lack of electricity, no Wi-Fi, unreliable phone network, Indian style sanitation etc.
All students, Indians and International, will travel together to the village. As part of the experiential learning standpoint of the programme, the policy is to use public transportation only (train, bus). All transportation logistics will be arranged by the Live-in-Labs® project team.
