Students Exchange Programme

Incoming Students


Students registered for a degree programme from a recognized Institute/University and those who are officially sponsored by that Institute/University are expected to carry out Coursework / Research for a period of not exceeding two semesters can be accepted as visiting students under the Student Exchange Program based on the MoU or otherwise.
Students willing to do their thesis/ project work/research work may preferably contact the faculty members in advance to take their approval for guidance and for finalizing the research topic.
Admission of students is subjected to the terms and conditions of MoU / Students Exchange Agreement signed with Vel Tech and the rules and regulation of both the Country/ University/Institution concerned.
No tuition fee will be levied for the Students from partner Universities. Students have to bear the living and personal expenses such as boarding, lodging and travel. Accommodation will be provided in the International Guest House / Hostels on payment basis (approx. Rs.12,000/- per month which includes Airport Transfers, Local Transportation, Food, Wi-Fi, Access to Gym etc).
