Why should you choose Bangalore?
There’s a reason why Bangalore is known as the Silicon Valley of India. With a booming tech industry, vibrant nightlife and a cocktail of different cultures, this is a place overflowing with opportunity.
When you study here, you get to experience the best of Bangalore. Explore the diverse food scene by day or night, from the food trucks to high-end restaurants and international chains. After class, you and your coursemates can enjoy the perfect year-round climate in one of the city’s picturesque parks.
At night, dive into the bars, restaurants and clubs sprawled all over the city. And with a high-tech metro system, you can explore much more in less time.
A nightlife scene as great as Bangalore’s doesn't just mean epic nights out – it also means more job opportunities after you graduate. Ready to start your next adventure?All courses in Bangalore
The Bangalore school
As school locations go, it doesn’t get much better than EBS Bangalore. You’ll be studying in the Indiranagar area, one of the city’s most up-and-coming spots. There are hundreds of bars and restaurants within 1km of the school, so you’ll never be short on things to do.
And if you want to explore further, you’ll be just 500 metres from the metro station. It’s also just 10 minutes from the EBS accommodation, so everything you need is well within reach.
While you study, you’ll be based at Hibernest Hostel just 10 minutes from the school by public transport. Hibernest has cozy wooden cabin vibes, but with all the perks of a modern, comfortable hostel. After class, you can hang out in the lounge area or – our favourite feature – the roof terrace.
The hostel is surrounded by restaurants, bars and supermarkets. But if you want to explore, the nearest bus station is just 200m away, and the Indiranagar metro station is 1.5km away.
