The University has responded to the recent changes in world education scenario by promoting students and faculty from foreign countries to study/teach in the Mahatma Gandhi University. Recognizing the importance of inter-cultural and inter-institutional interactions in enriching the academic community, the University has envisaged the involvement of its foreign students and faculty in its academic research activities and also in the higher education programmes. This policy of the University is strengthened by the International Student Exchange Programmes and other international endeavours the University has commenced in the recent past.
