Program Overview

The Hyderabad program is offered in collaboration with the Study in India Program (SIP) at the University of Hyderabad. SIP provides international students the opportunity to study various aspects of Indian society, history, and culture, and creates an international environment on campus. SIP is nationally recognized by the Ministry of Education in India for its international education model. The CIEE Study Center at the University of Hyderabad will offer you a combination of specially designed courses organized by SIP along with direct enrollment in regular University courses.

A mandatory course load for one semester is four courses. You will be required to take Hindi at the appropriate level, as well as three additional courses either through the Study in India Program or by directly matriculating in regular University courses. If you already speak Hindi, you will also have the option of taking one of the other local languages: Urdu or Telugu. In addition, you will have the option of taking Basic Sanskrit as an elective.
