International Students Cell

Non - Resident Indians students (NRI)/Persons of Indian Origin (PIO)/Foreign students (herein after called international students) who join our Institution receive required guidance and support all through his/her tenure of the program from International Student Cell. All International students are offered pickup and drop facilities from Airport to University campus. We usher student's medical services at our hospitals, dispute resolution with fellow students/staff, compulsory mentoring services and language and cultural integration in general. Foreign students opting for hostel stay within/off campus accommodation is being facilitated through ISC. Students can drop a mail to or meet us in person at ISC Office located in Room no: 202, RA Block, Main University campus for help & support. We cater all necessary assistance towards meeting with compliances regarding visa formalities, FRRO registrations, university exit formalities etc.

Pre Arrival Information

International students are given prior information by email about life on campus, government norms & regulations contact information, weather details etc. All students are contacted and we provide information on housing/hostel requirements, tuition fee payments, important dates to remember, items to carry. We advice students to share with us travel itinerary details to know their schedule. We also provide "Buddy Services". Buddy service refers to connecting admitted students with current or graduated students from the same country in order to experience home feeling" prior to his travel.

Orientation programs

Our office acts as the first stop for International students and we work for their overall development during their stay at the University. Every student has to go through an orientation program to understand and help with his way around the University. Since different faculties have different start dates, we run multiple orientation programs. Given the current pandemic scenario, we run online orientation programs. We strongly encourage students to attend these programs as support services become more acute during these trying times.
