“As the traveler who has once been from home is wiser than he who has never left his doorstep, so knowledge of other cultures should sharpen our ability to scrutinize more steadily, to appreciate lovingly, our own”.
– Margaret Mead.
The pursuit of knowledge doesn’t stop at the borders of any country. Through its links with foreign universities, SRM sponsors advanced learning for its most eager students. These students experience an international education, a different culture and in the process raise their calibre to be at par with the world’s best.
Semester Abroad Program
In a move that’s a ¬first of its kind, SRM has initiated a Semester Abroad Program (SAP). Over 370 meritorious students are given the opportunity of a lifetime to spend a semester at some of the best universities around the world including Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon, Northeastern University, UC Davis, SUNY Buffalo, University of Wisconsin, Lille Catholic University, University of Western Australia, University of Warwick, Lancaster University, La Trobe University, NUS, NTU, Kyushu Institute of Technology, Chemnitz University of Technology, University of Auckland and many others.
This priceless exposure to a whole new sphere of learning brightens their job prospects in India and abroad and more importantly creates graduates who are future ready.

“Coming to Warwick as a part of the Dual Degree Programme was perhaps the best decision I ever made! I shall be getting both my B.Tech and M.Sc degrees in just 4 years, ahead of my peers. And, we will be allowed to work 2 years after graduation here. Warwick has the best research labs and many eminent scientists – and has opened up exciting opportunities for SRMites.”

“I am excited to have got transferred to the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee at the end of my third year at SRM. Will be completing my BS and MS at the US in just two years, saving cost and time. Many thanks for opening up this world of opportunity for me. I never dreamt about this, even a year ago.”
Omar Mehta, SAP Transfer to University of Wisconsin, USA
“The Semester Abroad Program has greatly helped me improve and sharpen not just my academic skills but has also benefited my future career prospects and has given me the right direction to streamline my efforts. Getting accepted for Masters in Computer Science at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, after completing a year as a Transfer Student is a great example in itself for the success of the Semester Abroad Program at SRM University. Also, Being offered a Project Assistant ship position this Summer’09 to Financially Support my Studies and gain Knowledge with Research, amounts to the Huge Success of SAP.”
