IRAC (International Relations and Academic Collaborations) serves a crucial purpose with regard to gaining the trust of institutions at both the national and international levels. This could be done by collaboration and mutual understanding. We can make the most of the latest information and knowledge from various domains thereby putting them into practice and subsequently gaining from them. GLA University has a number of well-established international partnerships and collaborations. GLAU has developed active collaboration with academic, research institutions, and industry through 20 international tie-ups and more than 100 national tie-ups.

Memorandums of Understanding and Memorandums of Agreement are used to formally document such type of collaborative engagements. For complete list of International/ National Collaborations, kindly visit the page: Click here

The International Relations and Academic Collaboration Office provides due guidance and support for the international relations and academic collaborations related to GLA University. Also, it assists in the internationalization of education and increases the University's visibility at a wider platform befitting its increasingly important standing.

Collaboration can take place at small as well as large scales; in informal interactions as well as formal class projects; and in short periods of time as well as long-term projects, such as Joint Research Projects, Joint Degree Program, Summer Course Program, Exchange programs, Internships, Case study analyses, Interactive Guest Lectures and in many more ways. We have been able to facilitate the development of our students and faculty members both in terms of the academics and marketplace with the help of exploring new horizons collectively. Collaborative learning at the university incorporates authentic opportunities to help students learn, practice and grow. These new literacy skills are essential for our students' future and overall well-being.

Consistency in terms of collaboration-related engagements is an encouraging sign and a true reflection of trust and confidence in GLA University and its top management. This recognition is inevitably based on GLA University's persistent track record of grooming set of successful students year after year. Looking forward, we remain ever committed to excellence, keeping abreast of the latest developments in myriad fields, providing due guidance to our students, adopting advanced learning, and building partnerships, and encouraging our faculty members to come up with their own ways to rediscovering their own ways of growing together with the University in the form of academic engagements and industrial tie-ups.

As part of effort put up by GLAU to enhance its international standing, the International Relations & Academic Collaborations (IRAC) Office promotes the internationalization of GLAU by:

  • being responsible for international policy development, research and country-specific advice to faculty members, students and researchers.
