South Asian University starts admission process for the academic session 2024 – 25 and introduces four new programmes

New Delhi, February 22:

South Asian University has started the online admission process for the new academic session 2024-25 for all programmes including Bachelor’s, Master’s, Integrated Master’s, MTech and PhD.

The admission brochure for the academic session 2024 -25 was released by the President of the university, Prof. K. K. Aggarwal at a function organised at Foreign Correspondents’ Club here today.

The university is going to introduce new programmes in the Department of Computer Science, namely, BTech, Dual Degree (BTech+MTech), MTech and integrated MSc+MTech from the new academic session.

SAU has plans to introduce more programmes in the near future. The programmes on offer are in the areas of Economics, Biotechnology, Computer Science, International Relations, Legal Studies, Mathematics and Sociology.

The entrance tests for these programmes will be conducted on 20th April & 21th April 2024. This entrance test will be computer-based with multiple choice questions conducted simultaneously across South Asia at designated centres. Applicants will be allowed to take the test on scheduled time slots at the respective test centres of their choice.

The entrance test is compulsory for admission to most of the programmes, however, there are modes of direct admission to some BTech, MTech, Integrated and PhD seats. In the direct mode of admission, certain categories of candidates are exempted from the entrance test and the shortlisting is done on the basis of their scores in certain standard examinations including JEE, GATE and JRF along with their CVs/SOPs/research proposals/letters of recommendations and then called directly for the interview, wherever applicable.

The university offers scholarships and financial assistance to a certain number of students on merit and merit-cum-means basis. Students are also granted specially-created visas. South Asian University is a unique university, jointly established by the governments of the eight SAARC nations. About half the students in SAU are from India while the remaining half are from the rest of the SAARC countries, barring a few students from other regions of the world.

Each SAARC country has a quota of seats but if the number of students from any particular country runs short of the allotted quota, the remaining available seats are filled up by students from other countries as per SAU rules.

Applicants from Non-SAARC countries can apply directly for admission giving details of their academic credentials, without appearing in the entrance test.

The last date for submission of online application on the university website www.sau.int is 31th March 2024. Admission Brochure and other details are available on the university website.
