With a spirit for exploration and an open mind, Darshan embodies the essence of SMU’s educational approach.

Having embarked on unique adventures like motorcycling through Vietnam’s mountains, skiing in Japan, and solo traveling in Australia, Darshan seeks to expand his horizons even further by taking the chance to travel more before the semester begins. In this regard, SMU’s Guaranteed Global Experience presents the Millennia Institute alumnus with an incredible opportunity to explore the world and broaden his perspectives.

Through various exchange programmes, internships, and community service activities, students like Darshan can embrace new perspectives and experiences, enriching their educational journey.

Darshan’s passion for technology and law led him to choose the unique Bachelor of Science (Computing and Law) programme at SMU. Fascinated by the possibilities technology brings and intrigued by the role of law in shaping society, Darshan recognised the value of an interdisciplinary curriculum that combines these two fields. SMU’s future-ready academic pathways and interactive pedagogy further cemented his decision. The seminar-style classes, emphasising active learning, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, provide an ideal environment for students to improve their communication abilities and forge lasting connections.
