Global knowledge and education drive students towards recognising 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 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.
Minimum Eligibility Criteria

(Juris Doctor) degree in a shortened duration without compromising on the quality of education. The Dual Degree programmes allow for an overall reduction of two years to earn the two degrees, thereby providing a considerable gain towards career development.

The programmes are designed to cater to students with an academic bent of mind who are interested in pursuing higher education opportunities at some of the best institutions around the world.

Collaborative Research Centres
To foster a collaborative research culture, JGLS has witnessed growth of two jointly run research centres, that work on cutting edge issues on law and policy, that fall under their domain:
The India-Australia relationship is growing from strength to strength, encouraged by the convergence of common interests in various areas such as education, regional security, energy and resources and international trade. Both nations have taken extraordinary steps to strengthen bilateral ties.
The Centre for India Australia Studies (CIAS) has been established to harness this momentum and drive collaboration in key areas of the relationship. The CIAS is the first and only Centre with a focus on the India-Australia bilateral relationship that is embedded in an Indian Higher Education Institution. The vision of CIAS is to emphasise the important bilateral relationship existing between India and Australia.
The CIAS has created opportunities for students and academics in India to learn about, and experience, Australia, and for Australian students and academics to learn about India
To date, the India Immersion Programme has hosted more than 100 Australian students for intensive residential programmes in India, all funded by the Australian Government’s New Colombo Plan. The students gain about Indian society, culture, foreign policy, business and law. In addition, the CIAS runs an international internship programme, providing opportunities for students in Australia and India to gain work experience in leading institutes, companies and Government bodies, in the other country. The CIAS also runs an Australia Studies programme in India, teaching Indian students about Australian society, culture, business and law.
The CIAS also catalyses academic linkages through joint conferences, joint teaching and joint publications with Australian partner universities. More than 200 distinguished Australians have visited JGU and the CIAS since its inception in 2016.
Centre for India-China Studies (CICS) was established on October 1st 2014 by the Jindal Global University. CICS provides a multi-disciplinary intellectual platform for academia, practitioners and students to discuss, debate and research on economic, social and cultural facets of India and greater China. It is also committed to playing an active intellectual role on issues related to India-China collaborations at regional and international level
Over the past few years, International Institute for Higher Education Research and Capacity Building at O.P. Jindal Global (Institution of Eminence Deemed To Be University) has been leading the effort in coordinating and organising various short-term study abroad programmes for the benefit of JGU students. These include programs to world-renowned institutes such as the University of Oxford, Harvard University, Columbia University, Wharton Business School of the University of Pennsylvania, California-Berkeley, Fletcher School of the Tufts University, Sciences Po, amongst many others. The vision behind the organisation of these programmes is to provide the students with transformative experiences, and the necessary qualifications and capabilities to set them apart and ahead in the globalised world.
The three-four-week short term fully residential programmes are structured in a way that cuts across the themes of law, business, diplomacy, media and communication, sports, governance, culture and human rights. The interdisciplinary nature of these credit-based programmes ensures maximum participation from students across JGU’s various schools.
Needless to say, these programmes have been immensely successful. Every year over 200 students opt for various short term programmes organised by the university over summer and winter breaks.
