Global Opportunities

Student Exchange Programme

Global knowledge and education drive students towards recognizing and embracing an array of different cultural and community perspectives. An international experience creates new career opportunities, while also broadening the perspective of students. It is with this aim that JGLS considers Student Exchange programmes for one semester to be of vital importance.

JGLS offers a geographically diverse and academically enriching variety of Student Exchange programmes. We provide students the opportunity to spend a semester abroad at one of our partner institutions spread across varying legal systems, from common law to civil law. These exchanges offer each individual student something unique and remarkable to learn and bring back with them. The exchanges not only enrich students’ lives in the academic and professional sphere, but also enhance language learning, intercultural skills, self-reliance, self-awareness, and a plethora of soft skills that are crucial in today’s time. These experiences help students become citizens of the world, replete with the abilities and responsibilities attached to such global citizenship. In addition, these qualities also enhance students’ job prospects in a dynamic professional workplace where employers across the globe have gone ‘global’.

 

The Student Exchange programmes are open for our students pursuing the five-year B.A. LL.B / B.B.A. LL.B programmes; three-year LL.B. programme and one-year LL.M. programme. The exchanges are mutual and shared with our partner institutions. Each year, eligible students from JGLS spend a semester at one of our partner institutions across the globe and we host their students on our residential campus. The programme is revenue-neutral with respect to tuition fees. Students continue to pay their tuition fees at their respective home institution; however, they are responsible for their travel, living and other ancillary expenditure.
