BCA Study Abroad: Chennai, India

Chennai is the fourth-largest city in India, and the city is known for its culture, music and film. It’s also a well-known city for the automotive, technology, healthcare and hardware manufacturing industries. Located on the Coromandel Coast of the Bay of Bengal, Chennai is 367 years old — the city was previously known as Madras. Its exciting theatre sector heavily influences the classical dance form, Bharatanatyam. Visitors who enjoy both the arts and business worlds enjoy the historic city of Chennai.

BCA students live on campus in student housing in air conditioned rooms that are furnished with a single bed, closet, desk and chair. Women are housed in Martin and Margaret Hall while men are housed in Thomas Hall. Each Hall has a Warden who is in charge of the hall. Students take their meals in the common dining room at each Hall. They will also have a small kitchenette to use as needed.

Challenging Fulfillment

India is tough. Period. Especially for those of us who are so used to Western amenities. New experiences await, like using a bucket for taking a shower and doing laundry, coexisting with all sorts of animal friends, and more culinary flare than your Uncle Fieri's spice-rack. Putting aside the lack of municipal garbage disposal and flooding, the streets are fun to explore and highly chaotic for those that love to live in the moment. Public Transportation in Chennai is efficient and very cheap; I used the suburban train almost every day for commuting. Unless your academia is Social Work, a good chunk of your time will be spent exploring Chennai with new friends, all of whom I met were originally from the College (lone student abroad). Anupama Pai, the current director, is also amazing and easy to speak. Just be on time for things (unlike some of us). As long as you are ready for the constant sweating and a nuance of gender norms, BCA Chennai is a terrific program!
Disclaimer: I studied Political Science, that [2] under academia would be an [8] for Social Work.

How can this program be improved?

I believe more emphasis can be put on exploring the city, because the college is in a suburb, Tambaram, and some students never get to see the urban center as much as they should. Much is left to be desired in attempting to learn the local language, Tamil, especially due to the college's language department and how they operate with foreign students, but this matter is a work in progress.

Yes, I recommend
