Jalandhar: LPU student, Shubham Tondon of BTech CSE Programme has joined one of the top partner universities in Canada, Lethbridge University (UoL), under articulation programme. He has completed first two years of computer engineering programme at LPU and will further complete his two years in Canada to get Canadian Degree in BSc Computer Engineering. He has already commenced his encouraging academic journey at UoL under articulation programme. Like Shubham, hundreds of other LPU students have either completed or pursuing their study abroad programmes with partner universities in the top countries including the US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, Brazil, UAE, Australia, Russia. Shubham will now gain expertise in programming, digital systems, database management systems, data structures, and computer architecture to solve global problems.
LPU’s Additional Director at Division of International Affairs, Mr Aman Mittal informs: “LPU has a lot of global opportunities’ programmes for the rich advantage of its students. A student under this programme experiences international study culture well under the framework of a different educational system abroad. Under this programme, the students study a part of the programme at a partner university in a different country and earn ‘academic credits’ of that university.” Mr Mittal further specified that in this way a student saves almost 50% of the cost of study abroad programme, as the student completes 2 years in India and has only to pay fees for the next two years to be spent with a partner university.
With ever increasing 200+ partnerships with world ranked universities, LPU has strong ‘Study Abroad Programmes’. Facilitating hundreds of students for learning abroad schemes, even on 100% fee waiver opportunities, it has been setting unbeatable records. In fact, LPU has signed MoUs with various universities and colleges of America, England, Canada, Germany, France, and more.
University of Lethbridge is a comprehensive academic and research institution (CARI) and offers programmes in the Faculties of Arts & Science, Management, Education, Health Sciences and Fine Arts.
