The Study India Programmes (SIPs) are CASII initiatives. CASII is an educational trust registered in Kachchh with an area of work spread out all over India. CASII's affiliation to a university/institute recognized by the University Grants Commission, Delhi is awaited. Such an affiliation would facilitate credit-transfers for international students. In the interim CASII would provide credits through other institutions/universities, to students in their Study India Programmes.
The credit-based SIPs are offered to international students and the duration of these programmes could be from one month to one semester (10-12 weeks) and would be tailored towards their gaining credits for the courses offered in the programme.
These Study India Programmes would be organized between October and December and January and March for Institutions/Universities.
CASII also offers Intensive 'Embedded Courses' of 2-6 weeks as an alternative to full-scale credit-based SIPs. These would be based on courses offered at the home institutions of the participating students. Such embedded courses would be in collaboration with a professor from that institute, who will teach the course in India, in tandem with 2-3 resource persons from CASII. Credits for Embedded Courses will be offered by the Home Institution. Embedded Programmes could choose their own time slots.
CASII also offers SIPs to multinational executives newly posted in India/NRI’s and individuals. Such SIPs could be tailored to suit the needs of the participants. The time duration and slots could also be as per the convenience of the group.
One-on-one interaction with guest faculty, local students and the tribal population, and excursions would be a unique feature of all these programme.
