July 31, 2021 - 07:01

The Nordic Centre in India (NCI) university consortium now launches semester programmes at Pondicherry University in Puducherry, India. Students from the 17 member universities and research institutes in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden will have the possibility to spend a full semester in Puducherry and study freely chosen courses (equal to 30 ECTS) at the university. Since many years the NCI and the Study in India Program at University of Hyderabad are running successful semester programmes in Hyderabad. The new collaboration with Pondicherry University will facilitate a second program of this kind.

Established in 1985, Pondicherry University is a Central University with 34 Departments, 10 Centres and 2 Chairs under the umbrella of totally 15 schools. The university also has two campuses in Karaikal (150 km south of Puducherry) and Port Blair (Andaman and Nicobar Islands). As an affiliating University it also has 5 Medical colleges, 16 Engineering Colleges, 30 Colleges of Education and 19 Arts and Science Colleges. The Study in India Program at the university was established in 2000 and has hosted several programs for international students throughout the years.
In 2012, the NCI initiated discussions with the Study in India Program at Pondicherry University for the purpose of establishing study and research collaboration, starting with a semester programme for students from the Nordic member universities. In 2013 the General Assembly of NCI approved the new collaboration and within short a MoU will be signed that allows for various study programs and research exchanges between the NCI and Pondicherry University.

More information about the new semester programmes will be available at the NCI website during the autumn. Go for the website.
