Caught up with the courses without a clue of time, as the days went on, I realised that I wouldn't have found a better Program than this, which is of my interest! The thoroughly experienced Professors who know inside out in their fields have been coaching us, for the past Semester. I highly recommend this Program for the students who choose their career in Dryland Systems and related sciences.
I have found the BGU Lectures to be very interesting! The BGU Faculty have a good rapport with us Students and are open to clearing doubts. The assignments and presentations have been highly useful as well.
My experience with the PGCDS Program has been very wonderful till now. The 1st Semester is coming to an end and I have learned a lot, not just academically but in all aspects of my Career development. The Faculty members are extremely supportive throughout the journey and I feel that I have chosen the best!
It has been a truly valuable learning experience through the highly interactive platform of the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. The assistance and help rendered by the Faculty, both from Israel and India has been simply excellent. The assignments are constructive and to the point. This PGCDS Program has given me a great input for boosting my morale. Considering the International standards, the fees structure is reasonable. Truly a very good environment for learning and improving oneself!
