Here are some examples of customized programs created by BEYOND BORDERS in the past year :

Bollywood Film & Marketing

This Program was created when a partner University wanted it’s creative industries students to understand how Film Making and Marketing in the world’s largest film industry play a major role; right from the making of a film, to its release and publicity to make it a box-office hit. The Program combines field trips and meetings with directors, producers, cinematographers, production companies, distribution agencies, PR and promotion professionals to help students understand how in a highly competitive space where upto 6 films release in one single day, film marketing is the key to success.

Design Abroad

We jointly created this Program with a partner University who wanted their design students to meaningfully Engage, Ideate, Prototype and Co-design with rural communities and help improve the sustainability of specific projects. This is a 3 week, 1 credit course that allows students to engage in the participatory design process. Read more


This program was developed specifically for the nursing faculty of one of our partner Universities. The program allows students to observe nursing in context to different medical disciplines and understand how Nursing works in the developing world where millions still remain underserved due to lack of adequate medical infrastructure.

Occupational Therapy

This 4 week Program was developed for one of our partner institutions whose student groups needed to directly engage with children in need for Occupational Therapy. This became one of our most hands-on programs for students and professionals where they get to work closely with therapists and monitor the improvement in children, week-on week.
