In general, exchange students are allowed to take any courses from the course list, provided they do not foresee any problem in the medium of teaching and have met the prerequisite requirements.


The student residences are imbued with a unique sense of community. The mix of students from different backgrounds helps students broaden their world-view and embrace different cultures even as they learn to be considerate and respectful of their hall mates. There are four undergraduate residence halls as well as university-managed off-campus university housing.
