The University offers a single window support service to the international students through its Students’ Counselling Centre. The centre provides them with the information regarding admission, along with guidance and assistance to help adjust to a new academic environment. The centre also enables the students to acclimatize themselves not only with the institution but also with the city, especially with regard to its culture and language.
All international students will require a Student Visa for joining a full time course. The visa should be valid for the prescribed duration of the course, however, it is not required in the case of (non-resident Indian) NRI students. Those students who are pursuing a full time course in any other institution do not require a separate visa for joining a part time course, provided that their current visa is valid for the entire duration of the course.
