Academic Exchange Program

It’s the opportunity to lead. The chance to create something larger than yourself to give back or simply give time to the campus community.

Student life at U-M is crowded with the kind of thoroughly engaging opportunities a major public university affords…the kind of opportunities that extend the academic experience beyond the classroom, enable students to learn the lessons of leadership, to connect with one another and a myriad of on- and off-campus communities, to explore new worlds, or to simply just have fun.

about us
Academic exchange programs provide students with an opportunity to study in a different environment experiencing the history and culture of another geographical location.

We at JIRF as a partner institution accept a Exchange-student and they live with us in the allotted residence at our E-Koppalu, Participants in these programs fund their participation via scholarships, loans, or self-funding.

Student exchanges increase the participants’ understanding and tolerance of other cultures, as well as improving their language skills and broadening their social horizons.
