Are international students permitted to engage in part-time employment while studying?

Many foreign students who pursue their studies in India often seek out employment opportunities within the country. However, the Indian government restricts international students from engaging in employment during their studies, with exceptions made for Non-Resident Indians (NRIs), Overseas Citizens of India (OCI), and Persons of Indian Origin (PIOs).

While holders of foreign passports are prohibited from working during their study period in India, OCI and PIO cardholders are exempt from this regulation and are allowed to both work and study in the country.

International students are, however, permitted to undertake internships and training as part of their academic programs, though such opportunities are typically unpaid and must be relevant to their course of study. OCIs and PIOs are required to obtain permission from their enrolled university or institute before taking up any part-time employment.

There is no hourly restriction on employment for OCI and PIO students, provided the work undertaken is related to their academic pursuits. Though India does not issue work permits specifically for international students, those seeking post-study work opportunities may be eligible for work permits if they meet the criteria established by immigration authorities and have secured employment with a reputable organization.

Is there a minimum attendance requirement for international students to be eligible for exams?

Indeed, all international students are required to maintain a minimum attendance of 75% throughout the academic session. This criterion ensures active participation in academic activities and facilitates a conducive learning environment for all students.

Is it necessary to procure additional study materials during our academic tenure?

Students are granted access to a sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS) software, offering a comprehensive array of study materials. Furthermore, the campus is equipped with libraries, enriching the academic landscape with an extensive collection of supplementary resources for students' scholarly pursuits.

In the event of an emergency requiring me to return to my home country before completing my studies, will I be eligible for a refund of my paid fees?

Should unforeseen circumstances necessitate your return to your home country, it is imperative to adhere to the established exit process by obtaining permission from all relevant university departments. To navigate this process smoothly, it is advisable to engage with the International Student Cell for guidance and assistance. Please be informed that fees paid in full or in part will not be refunded under any circumstances. However, the university's grievance committee may consider exceptional cases where individuals, who have obtained prior permission, seek fee adjustments for resuming their studies at a later time.

It's crucial to note that international students who fail to report their absence for a specific period to the International Student Cell or their respective school department will not be eligible for fee adjustments or study continuation. In such instances, the university reserves the right to cancel admission or require the student to reapply as a fresh applicant, starting from the first year.

Which document confirms my admission: the offer letter or the provisional admission letter, and do I need to carry both until I complete my studies?

The offer letter is a crucial document provided to you at no cost, serving as an official confirmation of your eligibility for the desired program for a specific session. While the offer letter does not suffice for visa purposes and expires after one month, it contains essential program details such as your name, country, program name, duration, required fees, and bank details.

Conversely, the provisional admission letter, issued by the International Admission Department upon payment of the admission fee, confirms your provisional admission and is a valid document for obtaining a study visa for India. It includes similar details as the offer letter but also provides specific instructions regarding pre and post-arrival information.

It is advisable to retain both documents throughout your academic journey. While the offer letter signifies your initial eligibility, the provisional admission letter holds greater weight for visa purposes and provides detailed instructions for your study journey.

Is there a specific undertaking that requires my signature during registration?

Indeed, as part of the registration process, you will be required to sign an undertaking at the International Student Cell. This undertaking pertains to the information provided to you, ensuring that you have thoroughly reviewed details regarding attendance, fee payments, hostel instructions, and any other relevant matters applicable to your enrollment.

Upon completion of my studies, with my visa nearing expiration and the inability to return to India, how can I obtain my degree?

For international students who have successfully completed their studies and passed all subjects without any backlog, there is a streamlined process in place. Following the publication of results online, students can submit an application to the Controller of Examination cell for the immediate issuance of provisional transcripts.

However, for the receipt of original mark sheets and the degree certificate, international students must await the university's announced deadline. In cases where a student's visa is nearing expiration and there is a delay in obtaining the original degree, the International Student Cell can provide assistance in extending the visa for a specified period.

In the event that a student has returned to their home country and is unable to physically collect their original degree, they can initiate the process remotely. By sending an email from their registered email address with the university to both the Registrar's Office and the International Student Cell, students can request the procurement of their degree through suggested channels. Additionally, they will need to submit an undertaking for the same and bear any associated expenses, if applicable.

Is there a centralized resource for international students to address their concerns, whether academic or non-academic in nature?

Absolutely. The Officer in Charge for International Student Support at the International Student Cell serves as your dedicated point of contact, offering comprehensive assistance and guidance tailored to your needs. This individual is committed to providing 360-degree support throughout your academic journey, liaising with various departments to ensure prompt resolution of your queries and concerns.
