Students are eligible for exchange/dual degree as follows:
The following selection criteria are employed for the semester abroad/dual degree selection process:
Candidate(s) with a history of serious disciplinary issue and or past conduct will be decided on a case-by-case basis, and if need be, the Dean of JSIA will be consulted.
In case of cancellation or withdrawal, students are required to immediately notify the Assistant Deans of International Collaboration prior to their nomination.
In case of cancellation from the host institution, efforts will be made to secure an alternative opportunity in the Spring semester. This is only subject to availability.
Information Regarding Fees:
Normally, students pay their fees to JGU. Only Geneva School of Diplomacy (GSD) and University for Peace (UPEACE), Costa Rica require students to pay fees to the host university. Students also have to pay for their travel and living expenses to the host university. Each university provides information about fees and living expenses on their website.
Credits will be awarded for the successful completion of such courses in the following manner:
Courses taken up in an exchange/dual degree program shall be considered as elective courses at JSIA and shall be reflected in the JGU mark sheet as elective courses and must be approved by either of the Assistant Deans for International Collaboration BEFORE leaving for the exchange program. The grades obtained on an exchange/summer school/ dual degree shall be reflected on the JGU mark sheet after having been converted to the GPA scale used by JSIA/JGU. For the GPA conversion scale, refer to Annexure III. The grades obtained on a semester on exchange/ dual degree shall be marked with an asterisk with a notation that the said semester was spent in exchange/ dual degree (as the case may be). Students shall be free to attach the original grade sheet obtained from the foreign university.
Students are mandatorily required to enroll in adequate number of courses at the host university to ensure that such credits earned shall convert to 15 JGU credits for BAGA students and 12 credits for MA DLB students, with a cap of 18 credits per semester. However, in the event that regulations of the host university allow for a maximum number of credits, such that the number of credits received (after conversion) as a result of an exchange/ dual degree program is less than 15 JGU credits for BAGA students and 12 credits for MA DLB students, students may elect to make up for such shortfall by opting for additional electives in preceding or succeeding semesters.
The maximum credit obtainable as exchange credit on conversion to JSIA scale shall not exceed the credit limit set for a semester. Credits will not be awarded for non-JGU recognized courses including courses taken up by students during their summer/ winter break.
I hereby declare that after having been nominated as an exchange/dual degree student to ………, I will commence the application procedure in time and I will attend the exchange/ dual degree program where I shall fulfil all obligations of the host university to the best of my abilities.
