Nizam College has significant number of foreign students from different countries across the globe like Afghanistan, Middle-East countries, African countries, South Asian and East Asian countries.
To coordinate various services for foreign students and facilitate better services a separate Foreign Students Cell was established in 2015. Prior to that all the student services for foreign students was coordinated at Principal’s Office. However the increasing strength of the foreign students in the institution necessitated establishment of a separate cell. The Cell performs functions like registration of fresh students; providing bonafide certificates; recommendation letters etc. The Cell also coordinates with Foreign Relations Regional Office (FRRO), University Foreign Relations Office (UFRO) and for students scholarships it coordinates with Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR).
The Cell under the supervision of Cell Coordinator organizes orientation and awareness programmes, sports events, health checkups for the foreign students and Foreign Students Day. Such programmes facilitate our foreign students to feel at home and acclimatize them to the college campus. It is a platform for interaction between the foreign students and Indian students to showcase their talent and present their cultural ethos.
The Cell has encouraged foreign students of Nizam College to form NIFSA (Nizam Institution Foreign Students Association) to support and encourage the foreign students studying in Nizam College.
