International Shiksha - The Story So far
International Shiksha, a flagship event organized by Study Networks is a boutique event conducted in schools and colleges each year especially to showcase international education destinations and build relations directly between international and local institutions.
Parents need to decide the right school, the right curriculum, the right undergraduate and/or postgraduate program with an eventuality of the right outcome for their child. International Shiksha aims to address student and parents at this crucial stage of their decision making process.
International Shiksha is different because it offers more. Host Schools / Colleges and Participants get to get to sample Universities and course options across multiple countries but we boast of having the largest number of Consulates / Education departments under one roof !
The idea is to make interaction for schools, students and parents highly engaging where you can discuss careers, lifestyle choices as a student and thereafter as well as plan for the return on the education investment.

At International Shiksha we try new things:
I.S. ’17 organized a special panel discussion on trending topics on International Education for Principals, Vice-Principals, Directors and Administrative leaders led by the representatives of participating Consulates and Universities.
2017's event also saw International Shiksha host Dr. Melanie Brooks from Monash University who held an exceptional workshop on Education Leadership for School Management for school principals and counsellors which led to discussions on International Mentoring Programs and Exchange Programs for schools.
In 2016, we held a Workshop for Educators which saw the active participation between University representatives and Educators discussing the new avenues in education and the way forward.
Designed for schools and inspired by student voices, Study Networks’ International Shiksha 2018 brings the world to your doorstep yet again on Thursday September 6th and Wednesday October 10th 2018.
