Semester Abroad Programme

VIT’s Semester Abroad program aims to encourage students from all streams to pursue their final semester in one of the partner universities abroad. The Office of International Relations organizes a road show to students in their pre-final year and all are invited to participate.

The Semester Abroad Programme (SAP) was introduced with an aim to encourage students from both the undergraduate and postgraduate streams to pursue their final semester in a university abroad.


"I had the opportunity to work with world class researchers at University of Picardie Jules Verne, Amiens, France. This experience truly taught me how e research is actually carried out in a research lab and new insights to pursue my Ph.D in the future. The professors were extremely helpful and it was with their help that many of the budding researchers like me could gain knowledge and confidence in my field of work". 
Rishabh Gupta, B.Tech. Biomedical Engineering, University of Picardie Jules Verne, Amiens, France
