FAQs 

What is AIP?

SRM Academy for International program (AIP) is the new age torchbearer of innovative educational concepts, which widens the scope of educational opportunity and access for students. This concept gives the student community a wide range of choice to learn and assimilate, to unfurl the intricate concepts of the subjects of various program through a well-made and meticulously executed academic rigour.

It provides a unique opportunity to engineering undergraduates to secure a degree from a pool of world best universities. It offers an opportunity for the students to live, interact and learn in two different cultural environments.

SRM University works closely with leading universities around the world to offer an affordable way of getting an internationally recognised qualification. In response to enquiries from parents and students across the country for (i) Twining (Transfer) Degree overseas (ii) Dual Degree overseas, AIP is well positioned to offer such programs in collaboration with world best universities across the world.

How is this possible?

AIP has tie ups with Universities in USA, UK, Europe and others, which accept international transfer including credit transfers of AIP students. This is because the curriculum taught at AIP is on par with international standards, and conform to all curriculum and teaching methodology norms.

It is, however, subjected to acceptance by the hosting university and seat availability and students meeting their admission criteria. The students are able to choose their international university only after the second year, based on GPA Scores. A minimum of 3.0 CGPA (out of 5) is required to enable transfer into Ivy League colleges, whereas 2.5 - 3.5 GPA is required for other Universities in USA, UK or Europe.

What if a student is not able to get the required GPA, and is not accepted in an international university?

We expect students with CGPA of above 3.0 (out of 5) in their first two years would get accepted in international universities. However, in case a student does not obtain the necessary required GPA or fails in his / her semester exams, the student has to repeat the semester exams just like in any other engineering institute. However, AIP also provides the necessary coaching, mentoring and support to enable the student to clear his exams. In worst case scenario of not getting admitted overseas, you would have the flexibility to complete the B.Tech or M.Tech or MBA at SRM University.
