The last batch was successfully completed in month of February 2019 in which 7 students from Poland, Russia, Turkey, Afghanistan and Uzbekistan have participated.

Salient feature of the program is as below:

1. Multiple Intakes:

The program is named as Winter School Program looking at the need of foreign students as far as comfortable weather is concerned. As you know, in India, March to July remains very hot in summer. So, We have three intakes in a year. September, October, and February. Program start with the 1st Monday of each of these month.

These all months are having good weather with lots of festivals - which students can enjoy.

2. Duration:

The program is designed for 2 weeks to 4 weeks. Generally, the foreign universities / students prefer 2 week duration. The first 2 weeks are hosted by the University PG departments and in case of 4 week program, the 3rd and 4th week is hosted by our affiliated institute (located at different cities of the state).

3. Perfect blend of Academic and Socio-Cultural Experience:

Winter School Program is designed in such a way that the participants get perfect blend of Academic and Socio-cultural experience. Being a technological university, we are very strong in filed of Engineering, Business management ( In India, MBA comes under technical courses), Pharmacy, Computer Applications and Architecture.

In the brochure you may see that the program is designed in such a way that the students will get the exposure to:

Being a public (Government) University, we do not earn profit out of any of the activities. Winter School Prorgam is designed just to offer a Global Exposure to the Foreign Students and providing exposure to the Academic Expertise and a rich Socio-cultural environment of India & Gujarat.

So, the cost of Program is very nominal i.e Euro 500 for 2 week program. It is the cost to meet the actual expenses only. It includes:
