The President of India, Ram Nath Kovind, graced and addressed the 15th convocation of the Symbiosis International University in Pune, today, October 23, 2018.

The President said that India had been a center of learning for centuries. From Taxila to Nalanda, the subcontinent’s age-old universities attracted students from different parts of Asia and beyond. In modern times as well our campuses have been open to and welcoming of talented young people from many countries, especially those in our neighborhood and Africa.

The President said that it is worth noting that 46,144 international students from 166 countries study in various colleges, universities, and institutions of higher learning in India. Symbiosis plays a significant role in this process. He was happy to note that over 1,000 international students study in Symbiosis. Of those who are graduating today, 329 students are from 33 countries other than India. He said that this adds to the multicultural and cosmopolitan atmosphere of Symbiosis’s campus, and promotes goodwill among nations.
