Program Description:
Jindal Global University
 
Established in 2009, Jindal Global University (JGU) is situated on an 80 acre state of the art residential campus in the National Capital Region of Delhi (also called Sinopat). The vision of JGU is to promote global courses, programs, curriculum, research, collaborations and interaction.


The Jindal School of International Affairs (JSIA) is the first and only school in India that combines international relations, international law and international business. JSIA aims to address this need and enhance Indian and international capacities of analyzing and solving world problems. It intends to strengthen the international community with its own trademark vision for global governance and stable world order. JSIA concentrates on such areas as BRIC multinational corporations, global governance, international criminal law, impact of geo-economics on foreign policy, social and political implications of the information technology revolution, use of private military firms, economic intelligence and the emergence of global superpowers such as India.



Location
 
Jindal Global University is centrally located just northwest of India’s capital. With a metropolitan population of 16.3 million, Delhi is littered with the relics of lost empires. A succession of armies stormed across the country imprinting their identity onto the city before vanishing into rubble and ruin like the conquerors preceding them. Modern Delhi is a chaotic mix of medieval fortifications, Mughal mausoleums, dusty bazaars, colonial-era town planning and mega malls. It is often the lesser-known corners of Delhi that are the most rewarding such as the Lodi Gardens or the great fort of Purana Qila.


Eligibility Requirements
  • This program is limited to students in the Bush School of Government and Public Service
  • Be a TAMU student for at least one semester prior to application
  • Attend TAMU for at least one full semester after the exchange
  • Have a minimum 3.0 G.P.A.
  • Provide official transcripts from all college-level institutions attended
Students can choose to study abroad during 
  • Fall Semester (September to December)
  • Spring Semester (January to April)
  • Summer 10-Week (May to August)
  • Summer 1 (June to July)

Courses

As part of the exchange program at Jindal Global University, graduate students are open to register for any international affairs course JSIA offers.  Example elective courses at JSIA include international security studies, international human rights, Indian foreign policy, international relations of East Asia, negotiations and resolving international conflicts and global business strategies.

Housing
 
On-campus housing is guaranteed for all exchange students. In keeping with the local cultural dynamics, all residence halls are not co-ed. Rooms are shared by two students with a private bathroom and equipped with air conditioning. Laundry services are provided by the university. The campus services include washing, drying and ironing. Sporting and fitness facilities are open to students on campus including basketball, lawn tennis, cricket, badminton, treadmills, spinning machines and weight training. However if an exchange student does not wish to stay on-campus, they may stay off-campus as well.

 

Costs
 
One of the benefits of participating in a reciprocal exchange is its affordability. Overall costs are comparable to studying in College Station with the main difference in costs coming from travel related expenses and exchange rate. Please keep in mind that because you are enrolled at A&M, your regular tuition and fees will be paid at A&M just as if you were taking classes on campus. Additionally, students will be provided with the necessary information for them to make arrangements for all other expenses.
 
As soon as you decide to participate in a study abroad program, you will want to look into the funding available. Texas A&M scholarships designated specifically for study abroad include: The Study Abroad Fellowship and the International Education Fee Scholarship. Also, many academic colleges and departments offer scholarships for students studying abroad. Additional information can be found at the Study Abroad Programs Office Funding webpage.

Thoughts from a Former Exchange Student

"I decided to study abroad as a means of diversifying my professional skills, not to mention my career opportunities. Studying abroad is one of the best ways to broaden one's awareness of the complex issues surrounding this new international/global era in which we live. It helped me perfect my language skills and gain knowledge of the political, social, and economic issues the world faces today. Furthermore, I believe the personal experiences I gained will help me to be a better leader to welcome challenges, and to challenge the status quo."
