After a term of learning theory, skills and Practica in the Commons term, Fellows travel to new cities. This is an ideal opportunity to see how their ways of looking at the urban have changed. The visits are curated to help them observe, diagnose and conceptualise different parts of a new city.

In each of the cities they travel to, Fellows meet with a range of stakeholders including government officials, business leaders and civil society organisations, among others. They get the opportunity to learn about particular questions on urban services, affordable housing, environmental sustainability, transportation, employment generation, poverty reduction and small business development. 

In 2016-17, Fellows visited five cities: Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Chennai, Kochi and Madurai. In 2017-18, they visited Chennai, Mumbai and Amaravati/Vijayawada. In 2018-19 and 2019-20, Exposure Visits were conducted in Chennai and Mumbai.  In 2022-23, Fellows visited Mumbai, Hyderabad, Trichy and Tirunelveli, and in 2023-24, they repeated these visits and added Chennai!
