At Galgotias, we understand that International students come from varied backgrounds with a different set of needs and expectations. To help with their transition to the new culture in India and at the university, a special International Office has been established. This office acts as a liaison between international student community/professors and the different Schools and Departments at GU. It also serves as the nodal point for information and assistance to all International students and visitors. The International Office provides information, guidance and advice on all matters related to overseas student admissions and courses of study offered.
