Chandigarh, India, Jan. 30, 2021 — Chandigarh University has become the first Indian University to have signed Memorandum-of-Understanding (MoUs) with 306 leading Foreign Universities under its International Academic Alliance (IAA) flagship program, the institution announced today. The institution said it is surging ahead with its commitment to impart quality higher education of international standards.

Chandigarh University is a newly established private educational institution located in the Punjab State. It has its campus near Chandigarh, from which it gets its name. And Chandigarh is a city in India, about 250 kilometers north of Delhi and roughly 200 kilometers southeast of Amritsar.

The students & faculty of Chandigarh University now benefit from Global Exposure, Student Exchange, Faculty Exchange, Semester Exchange, and Joint Research Initiatives. They can become members of international student & faculty research groups and present papers at international conferences.

More than 1200 CU students from Engineering, Law, Hotel Management, Journalism, Management, Agriculture, Forensic Sciences, Applied Health Sciences, and Tourism have benefited under the International Academic Partnership program.

While giving details of the IAA flagship program, Chandigarh University’s Pro-Chancellor said, ” Top-ranked universities including QS World ranked universities from the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, European Union, and SAARC have joined hands with Chandigarh University. The international partnerships are a win-win situation both for the academic institutions and students as they share educational, cultural and research resources.” “Students from 40 countries are currently undergoing their higher education in more than 135 Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate programs at Chandigarh University,” he added.

Besides academic learning, the benefit of the International Academic Alliance program, the students also stand a chance to grab global placement opportunities. “World’s top entertainment and hospitality company, Walt Disney has selected 155 students from Hotel Management, Tourism, Finance & Management programs over the last five years,” said the Pro-Chancellor. Foreign universities have also offered scholarships worth Rs. 15 Crores to CU students, which has provided financial assistance to the students who dream of studying abroad.

Satnam Sandhu, Chancellor, Chandigarh University, said, “Students from India have always dreamed of studying abroad or adding some international exposure to their higher education. The International Academic Alliance program of Chandigarh University has helped the students fulfill their dreams. We have recently seen that many Indian students couldn’t travel abroad due to pandemic. It is during such hard times that the global partnership programs of Chandigarh University come in handy for the student community.” Chandigarh University also offers 2+2, 2+1, 1+2 international articulation programs in collaboration with the universities from the USA, UK, Canada, and Australia. Under these programs, the students can start their academic degrees at CU campus and then shift to foreign varsities to complete their degrees using the Credit Transfer Benefit Scheme. “This arrangement helps save money for the students who wish to travel abroad for higher studies during the middle of the academic tenure. The student is allowed to pay the fee as per the Indian arrangement.”
