International Cell

The Symbiosis Centre for International Education (SCIE) was formalized through a Board of Management (BOM) resolution made in February 2008. The resolution was a fall out of the discussion that took place in the BOM related to Internationalization of Symbiosis International University.

The SCIE was formed to streamline the processes related to International Collaborations, participation in International Conferences & Seminars, International Student Mobility, and Setting up of Study Centres, etc.

The Symbiosis Centre for International Education (SCIE) is a department of the University, providing leadership & support for the University's efforts to internationalize the campus and the curricula.
