Twining Program

“A cultivated mind is one to which the fountains of knowledge have been opened, and which has been taught, in any tolerable degree, to exercise its faculties”
-John Stuart Mill, Utilitarianism, II, 1863

Twinning / Transfer programs allow SRM to offer Bachelors (UG) and Masters (PG) degree programs which will have their regular curricula. The existing curricula may be supplemented by additional curricula of the partnering universities if desired by SRM. Through twinning / transfer programs, SRM students will be able to earn several credits during the course of their normal study in SRM. Students will have the opportunity either to complete their studies in SRM or to transfer their credits to the partnering universities at any time after completing two year of their studies in SRM. Students, who opt for transfer, can then finish their degree programs by completing the remainder of credits in residence at the partnering universities.

The number of credits to be waived for students admitted on transfer basis will be at the discretion of the partnering universities. Students enrolling in the graduate and post-graduate programs in the partnering universities will be given degrees and diplomas by the partnering universities after successful completion of study. Transfer students will be charged the prevailing tuition by the partnering universities. Students who do not plan to go to the partnering universities and students who have been unable to get visas will complete their program of study in SRM, would be awarded degrees by SRM.
