Semester Abroad Programme

Semester Abroad Programme

SRM - AP has collaborations with various universities across the globe and has signed Memoranda of Understanding with them. This gives our students the opportunity to study at the host university with mutual recognition of the credit hours, allowing the ease of credit transfers. The students at SRM University-AP can also get the benefit of tuition fee waivers. Some of our partners are:

As a part of the Semester Abroad Program, students are permitted to enroll in a few classes and/or a major project at reputable foreign universities for ONE semester/year. By using a recognised conversion process, the credits acquired at the foreign university through the SAP will be converted into SRM credits and used by SRMAP to determine whether to grant the degree. The students return home following their time spent studying abroad to continue with the degree program for which they were enrolled, and after fulfilling all the necessary conditions laid out in the regulations of SRMAP, the student will become eligible for the award of the degree.

Benefits of Semester Abroad Programme

Students get to study abroad for a full term with a University Abroad

Study abroad program is the best opportunity to see the world and learn about different culture and environment

Acquire native language skills , soft skills and power skills that can be learnt only through practical immersion.

A student who has stepped out of his comfort zone and gone abroad always catches the eyes of the prospective employer and holds a competitive advantage over his/her peers.

You’ll actually get to experience your place of study in the long term, picking up local knowledge such as where sells the best coffee, what tourist traps to avoid and how to get the most out of your new city.

Your exposure to many different types of people will not only help you to develop your people skills, but it will also give you a more in-depth knowledge of others, particularly those from different cultures.

Studying and living abroad requires you to be independent, without the safety of your home comforts. Look at this as an exciting new challenge (rather than something terrifying). Moving abroad is the ultimate test in self-reliance. When (or if) you move back, you’ll likely rely on others less and you’ll take more responsibility for yourself.

Get an opportunity to work with eminent professors of the universities and upon proving their mettle stand a good chance of getting direct admission to subsequent higher studies in that university or in other universities.

Student Testimonial

Semester Abroad Programme

Semester Abroad Programme at UC Davis changed my outlook on life. I got the opportunity to cooperate with industrial designers. For practical hands-on experiences, I worked for the UC Davis school of nursing. Besides, UC Davis promotes a variety of student clubs and technical programmes that bring students from all over the world together. The concrete understanding of the subject aided me greatly in learning about real-world problems, and accomplishing this dream of studying a semester abroad.
