International Collaboration

International partnerships between Educational Institutes are beneficial to all, from the staff and students to the world as a whole. A gamut of opportunities opened out to students because of internationalization. While keeping with the standards of international education, the foreign collaborations help Indian students to access global education at half the price. The healthy exchange of knowledge, insight and information brings a wealth of know-how into the local institute. This creates a breeding ground for new ideas and research. Raises the bar for their internal faculty, and provides them an opportunity to interact with the brightest minds of the world.

Keeping this in mind, SIHM focuses and put efforts for its international collaboration. Following are the details of International Collaboration of SIHM with various institute
