PSG IAS International Credit Transfer Programme is designed to stimulate curiosity for and love for Global learning , which widens the scope of International educational opportunity and access for students. PSG Institute of Advance Studies works closely with leading universities around the world to offer an affordable way of getting an internationally recognised qualification. PSG IAS CTP is well positioned to offer graduate and postgraduate programmes in collaboration with world’s best universities to provide students with skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century as well as empower all students to be engaged citizens of the world. The eligibility requirements are different for the regular programs.

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 college maintains close interaction with several R&D Institutions and institutions of higher learning in India and abroad, through institutional network programmes and collaborative research programmes. PSG IAS cross credit programs allows Global Partnering Universities to offer Bachelors (UG) and Masters (PG) degree programs which will have their regular curricula. The existing curricula may be supplemented by additional curricula of the partnering universities

if desired by PSG. Through these transfer programs, PSG students will be able to earn several credits during the course of their normal study at Coimbatore PSG campus. Students will have the opportunity either to complete their studies in PSG (incase of MBA from University of Toledo at PSGIM) or to transfer their credits to the partnering universities as per their entrance requirements at any time after completing two or three years of their studies in PSG. Students, who opt for transfer, can then finish their degree programs by completing the remainder of credits in residence at the partnering universities. The number of credits to be waived for students admitted on transfer basis will be at the discretion of the partnering universities. Students enrolling in the graduate and post-graduate programs in the partnering universities will be given Bachelor or Masters Degrees by the partnering universities after successful completion of study. Transfer students will be charged the prevailing tuition by the partnering universities.

Students who do not plan to go to the partnering universities and students who have been unable to get visas will complete their program of study in PSG, would be awarded degrees by PSG.

Program Structure:

This is structured as 2+ 2 or 3+1 (or 2+2.5 in for BE Innovative Textiles) program at the Bachelors level and 1+1 for Post graduation Level. For instance, students enrolling with PSG IAS for Undergraduate engineering program will complete their two or three years of study at PSG, India and later move over to the partnering university in USA,UK,GERMANY and Australian countries and complete the rest of the programme in one or more years to secure BS/BE/BSc/BA (Honours) from overseas. Similar arrangement (1 + 1) at Masters Level of Engineering and Management Degrees is also being worked out with four Global Countries.
