International Students

The Indian Academy student community is truly international. More than 600 students come from nearly 35 countries, in pursuit of a wide range of subjects. Students from all over India as well as other countries, together representing a broad spectrum of diversified cultural and economic environments, constitute our harmonious community, and add to a rich learning experience. Hence, the selection process is carefully designed to take this aspect of diversity into account.

Support services to International students:
  • A dedicated International Students’ Cell which assists students with documentation for securing visas, residential permits, housing requirements and other necessary support
  • Bridge courses in English, before commencement and during the course, to enable non-English students learn English
  • Orientation programmes to familiarise students with the local culture, do’s and don’ts, curriculum structure, examination and evaluation processes, and other necessary information
  • International Students’ Club which provides active support by organising meetings to extend emotional support and assistance in curricular and extracurricular activities
  • The college has also established an active association with the ICCR (Indian Council for Cultural Relations), that plays an important role in assisting the international student communities.
The ICCR, on behalf of the Government of India, offers scholarships and fellowships to international students wishing to study in India.

Indian Academy attracts, on an average, 30 international students through ICCR and Govt. of India scholarships every year, indicative of the preferred choice of meritorious international students.

IAGI has been associated with Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) from the academic year 2011-12. Students are admitted through Bengaluru North University, under the Govt. of India scholarship scheme administered through ICCR. In the year 2011-12, we had 19 students from 5 countries viz. Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh and Mongolia, studying various courses like B.A., B.Sc., BBM and BCA. In the year 2012-13, the number of students who availed this scholarship was 20, and in the year 2013-14, this number reached 32, with students coming in from 7 countries, namely Laos, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Afghanistan, Maldives and Nepal.
