Semester Exchange

About the Program

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”!
A student exchange program is a study program in which students pursue education at one of the international partner institutions for a period of 6 months to 1 year. IIT Madras encourages all types of collaborations and exchange programs with foreign universities. Study abroad programs are typically intended for undergraduates & graduate students who would like to spend a semester abroad taking courses/project work. International exchanges propel students towards multi-faceted approaches to learning. These experiences play a major role in their Self-development and awareness leading to enhanced self-confidence and self-esteem. Such exposure also makes them more comfortable in ‘foreign’ environments.
