Short Term Study Abroad Programmes

Short Term Study Abroad Programmes (STSAPs) have become extremely relevant for the universities who aspire to impart a world-class learning experience to its students. The international exposure not only broadens the students’ outlook but introduces them to the multi-cultural and interdisciplinary learning environment. This global confluence of experience equips the students with skills and knowledge to educate and inspire them in the fast-evolving global world. It will also help them imbibe the required qualifications and expertise that will be relevant in the globalized work environment.

 

Over the past few years, International Institute for Higher Education Research and Capacity Building at O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) has been leading the effort in coordinating and organizing various short term study abroad programs for the benefit of JGU students. These include programs to world-renowned institutes such as the University of Oxford, Harvard University, Columbia University, Wharton Business School of the University of Pennsylvania, California-Berkeley, Fletcher School of the Tufts University, Sciences Po, amongst many others. The vision behind the organization of these programs is to provide the students with transformative experiences, and the necessary qualifications and capabilities to set them apart and ahead in the globalized world.

 

The three-four-week short term fully residential programmes are structured in a way that cuts across the themes of law, business, diplomacy, media and communication, sports, governance, culture and human rights. The Inter-disciplinary nature of these credit-based programmes ensures maximum participation from students across JGU’s various schools.

 

Needless to say, these programs have been immensely successful. Every year over 200 students opt for various short term programmes organized by the university over summer and winter breaks.

The various Short Term Study Abroad Programmes offered at JGU include:
