CHANDIGARH, India, July 19, 2021 — Indian students find it challenging to travel abroad due to the prevalent travel restrictions imposed by countries because of the pandemic. According to an estimate, more than 7.5 lakh students from India travel abroad every year to pursue their dream to study at International Universities. However, it saw a 30% percent decline during 2020. Chandigarh University offers an alternate plan to realize the dream of studying abroad for Indian students under its International Academic Alliance program. With tie-ups with more than 309 Universities in 60+ countries, CU is offering various programs, including semesters abroad, student exchange, summer internships, and joint research initiatives. Chandigarh University is also offering International Articulation Programs in Engineering, BBA, Fine Arts, Commerce, Hospitality Management and MBA.

“More than 1200 students have benefited from the International Academic Alliance program at Chandigarh University. They have traveled abroad to countries like the USA, Canada, Australia, UK, Italy, and Germany to fulfill their dreams of pursuing higher education from foreign universities,” said the university Pro-Chancellor. Foreign institutions are offering 1+1 Masters and 1+2, 2+2 Under-Graduate programs for Indian students. Participating institutions include Vancouver Island University Canada, University of North Alabama USA, New York Film Academy, Arkansans State University, University of Canberra, University of New Castle, Curtain University, and Wollongong, Australia,” he added.

The Pro-Chancellor further said that “Indian students seeking admissions under the International Articulation Programs are in a win-win situation as they complete their initial 1 or 2 years of study at Chandigarh University. It saves money as they have to pay fees according to the local fee structure. They can then shift to their respective foreign universities to complete their degrees. It is a safe way to fulfill your dreams to study abroad as the success rate of getting visas under the International Articulation Program is 100%. In addition, the students are also eligible for benefits like work permit, stay till completion of the degree, and application for PR.”

“The students need not wait to ease travel restrictions as the initial 1 or 2 years of academic learning will be done in India. By then, things would be normal, and hence the students will save at least one academic year under the Chandigarh University International Articulation Program. In addition, the students are also eligible for government and university scholarships and fellowships. To date, CU has extended a benefit of Rs. 28 crores in the form of scholarships to students traveling abroad,” said Meenu Bhardwaj, Department of International Affairs, Chandigarh University.

Satnam Sandhu, Chancellor, Chandigarh University, said, “Chandigarh University has always worked to match the aspirations of today’s youth. Students and their parents aspire to undergo world-class education, enhancing career options at the global level. With this aim, we have started this International Academic Alliance Program where students get a platform to choose the country, university & course from the wide variety of international options. It can turn the dream of studying abroad into a reality.”

Chandigarh University is an autonomous educational institution located near Chandigarh in the state of Punjab, in India. It offers more than 109 undergraduate and postgraduate programs in engineering, management, pharmacy, law, architecture, journalism, animation, hotel management, and commerce.
