Our Mandate

Internationalization requires an integration of an international dimension into the institution’s activities and its environment. ‘Internationalisation’ has been a catchword for RCSS since its inception and 2019 marked as the 20th year of official collaborations which started in 1998 with a first International agreement signed with an International Partner University. Establishing vibrant academic tie-ups with leading universities all over the world have not only served to give students international exposure, but also facilitated in sharing resources for faculty training, curriculum development, research, and consultancy. Rajagiri is having two dedicated Offices of International Relations at both campuses to co-ordinate and promote the institution’s external relations with regard to international students, visiting scholars, external staff training programmes and research collaboration. The office offers a variety of services to international students and scholars from reception and orientation programmes to volunteer opportunities when they are in Rajagiri. We also provide students in Rajagiri with opportunities to study abroad. Rajagiri also hosts International students for different programmes offered mainly through Study In India (SII) programme.We are also a consortium member from India in International Summer University in Social Work (Consortium of Universities). For more details Log on to:
