In the rapidly globalizing world of today, colleges and universities increasingly require and, in fact, typically value such experience as both a personal and professional asset. SEP has long provided significant opportunities for student mobility, characterized by quality, accessibility, and affordability, and has positioned itself institutionally to play an even more important role in the future. Student Exchange Programme (SEP) promotes a greater understanding of the multi-faceted international issues and increases the competencies of students who will live and work in an increasingly interdependent globalized world. An exposure to the global and multi-cultural environment of working is well appreciated and much needed by transnational companies and Indian corporate houses alike. SEP provides a unique opportunity for the students to enrich their academic experience and widen their career horizons. The objective is to bridge the gap between industry and academia with focus on the skill centric courses with the aim of producing industry-ready professionals through improving employability and life skills. Students with academic and/or professional interest in other parts of the world and wanting to understand the global context of business can apply for the student exchange programme and depending upon the nature of tie-ups.

MOU With James Cook University (JCU), Australia.
Classes were generally small, ranging from about 20 people to 30 people. The lectures and tutorials were conducted in an informal manner, and all teaching staff highly approachable. You will be surprised to hear students address lecturers and tutors by their first names. The academic staffs were flexible and they try their best to help students learn more and pass the course.
Being in a new place or in a new culture, where the language, ideas, and people are so different, sparks emotions unlike any I’ve ever felt before. Cross-cultural relationships bring with them new experiences that may have been foreign to you before. While they are usually beautiful, exciting and eye-opening, they come with their share of hardships and misunderstandings as well. Making families mesh and understand one another when they come from two completely different backgrounds isn't always the easiest thing. The people are very polite, generous, helpful and friendly. The people love nature, sports and the outdoors. There are many defining moments in inter-cultural relationships that allow you to both appreciate each other's differences and just how thrilling those differences can turn out to be. For those of you who are already in the cultural thick of it probably know these moments all too well.
SEP is an extremely enriching and rewarding experience. It is more than just an academic venture, because it encompasses so many lessons about life itself.
