IGK encourages students to go out and explore the world. It organizes various extracurricular activities on the campus and off-campus as well. We strongly believe that students must connect to the culture and vibe of the city. Due to which, we suggest students participate in cultural exchange programs, city tour, sight-seeing, and more.
