James Cook University, Australia


PSG Institute of Advanced Studies (PSGIAS) was founded by PSG and Sons’ Charities trust to promote high quality research in some niche areas of science and technology, as well as to create opportunities to PSG Institutions to collaborate with universities abroad.

The vision is to become an Institution of excellence in cross border mobility of faculty and students and promotion of translational research.

The mission is to continuously explore and enhance academic collaboration with universities abroad for cross border mobility of students and faculty of PSG Institutions and promote innovative research and technology business incubation.

PSG Institute of Advanced Studies conducts educational courses in partnership with Universities abroad under credit transfer scheme. Students complete a part of study at PSG where the courses are taught by the PSG Tech faculty with the latest facilities available at PSG College of Technology and the students go abroad to complete the study there and get an international degree awarded by the foreign University concerned. By this process the expenses incurred by the students come down considerably, yet students can get an international exposure and international degree.

The students study the same syllabus as in vogue at PSG College of Technology (an autonomous institution affiliated to Anna University) for 2 years and complete the balance 2years at James cook University.
