The Office of International Affairs (OIA) is the nodal point and coordinating institute for all the activities and engagements of the university which are international in nature. Working in collaboration with all the Faculties, Colleges, Institutes and Administration of the University, the OIA facilitates and implements MSU’s mission of global engagement and efforts to further enhance the international visibility and its recognition as a major international educational and research centre.
OIA is a single-window to deal with the admission and guidance of International /NRI/foreign nationals with Indian origin students. It also facilitates the admission of international students with the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) Scholarship.
This office controls the admission of Foreign students to Certificates/Diploma, UG, PG, Post-Graduate Diploma or Ph.D. programs and also provides necessary guidance for securing admission along with registering the students with FRRO (Foreigners’ Regional Registration Office).
The Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda has a large number of collaborations and partnership agreements with various well-known universities and educational institutions across the world. These collaborations focus on the mobility of teaching faculties and students through exchange programs, joint research and training programs.
“The progress of a nation requires that its people should be educated. Knowledge is a necessity of man. It instills in him a desire to question and to investigate, which leads him on the path of progress. Education, in the broadest sense, must be spread everywhere. Progress can only be achieved by the spread of education. Cooperation is necessary to achieve any worthy end and this readiness to cooperate will not be found in people if they are not educated.”
– H.H. Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad III
