International collaboration

Jawaharlal Nehru University actively collaborates with a number of foreign Universities and Institutions and has established academic linkages with universities and institutions in 48 countries. Possibilities are being explored for academic collaborations with foreign universities of repute in other countries also.


There are two types of academic agreements:

1. Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is signed with foreign universities if the academic collaboration involves more than one School of Study of the University; and

2. Agreement of Cooperation (AoC) is signed at the School level which is specific to the field of study being pursued in a particular School of study.
