Manipal University - Occupational Therapy Placement


Manipal University is synonymous with excellence in higher education. Over 28,000 students from 57 different nations live, learn and play in the sprawling University town, nestled on a plateau in Karnataka’s Udupi district.  

Location profile:
Udupi- is a city in the Indian state of Karnataka. It is also known as the temple city. Just inland from the coast, Udupi is a holy town that's home to an ancient Hindu temple which is an important place of pilgrimage, and several monasteries.

It is impossible not to be astonished by India. Nowhere on Earth does humanity present itself in such a dizzying, creative burst of cultures and religions, ethnicities and languages. Every aspect of the country presents itself on a massive, exaggerated scale, worthy in comparison only to the superlative mountains that overshadow it. Perhaps the only thing more difficult than to be indifferent to India would be to describe or understand India completely.
