Exchange Program for Students


Exchange program is open for Undergraduate Students during their 5th semester (Odd semester of the third year).

Postgraduate Students can go for exchange only during their 3rd semester (Odd semester of the second year) provided they have a clearance from the Academic Dean.


Updated Exchange opportunities are announced year at the end of January. At the same time an Info Session is organised to explain the process and to respond to students’ questions.

  • Students eligible for exchange program should send a declaration of interest email to the international office with the indication of 3 college options (from the shared list).
  • Once a candidate is cleared and the elegibility is verified, their access to the BlackBoard submission portal will be enabled.
  • Cleared candidates must submit their portfolio (at least 10 works) and a Statement of Purpose via BlackBoard for review.
  • All portfolios and statements of purpose will be reviewed and evaluated by an independent review panel. Following the recommendations of the panels and taking into account candidates’ CGPA, final nomination will be done.
  • On receiving the nomination, candidates will have one week to accept or reject it.
  • Candidates, accepting the nomination, will be introduced to the international coordinator of the host school or university and will submit all required documents in order to proceed with the application process.
