Student Exchange

MIT Institute of Design facilitates student exchange between the collaborated institutions. The student will have the opportunity to take part in the exchange program both to experience a different culture and to enhance their skills.

Participating in a student exchange program is a way for the students to secure their career globally. Participating in one or two semesters gives an opportunity to interact with their expert faculty members, to understand the design culture and the most important is technology.

National Student Exchange

This International student exchange is designed especially for the B.Des students of MITID to broaden their view globally, experience a new culture & gain new knowledge. This is the best opportunity for the students who wish to grow globally in design.

The exchanges can last to 1 semester. Most importantly the credits earned in your exchange study abroad are transferable to the programme of your current study. The exchange does not require any additional payment of tuition fees but you need to pay for the accommodation and mess charges to the host institution.

This is a great opportunity for the students to gain new knowledge and to make friends.
Your exchange can last for 1 semester to 1 or 2 academic years, depending on the type of collaboration with the collaborated institutions for various programmes.
