HMKW students went on a four-week-trip to India.

Twenty HMKW Cologne bachelor students studying Journalism and Corporate Communication and Media and Event Management spent almost the entire month of March at one of HMKW‘s international partner institutions, JAIN University. The trip had been planned as a visit in return to the visit of Indian guest students to HMKW Cologne last August. Just like the Indian students, the HMKW students got the chance to take part in a media “summer school“ program exclusively created for them. Apart from courses in journalism, media and management topics, the program also covered cultural and sporting events, as well as trips to the nearby sights and areas. Prof. Dr. Hektor Haarkötter and research assistant Johanna Wergen from the Journalism and Communication Department accompanied the group.

Two of the students took over HMKW’s Instagram account in order to report on their experiences and share colorful and impressive photos from their trips.

New friendships were made among the students of both universities and the next visit is already being planned.
