Dear Fresher,


Congratulations on getting in to your programme of choice in the South Asian University. You have gone through a tough competition to be where you are, competing against hundreds of candidates who were vying for your seat.


Welcome to the South Asian University. As you know South Asian University is a unique International University with an inimitable culture and distinctive outlook. The last two years, in particular, haven’t been easy for us, for that matter, for most of the Universities and organisations around the world. The pandemic has had an unprecedented impact in the academic atmosphere and the annual academic cycle.


I am thankful to my colleagues and students for co-operating in any manner possible to fight the onslaught of the pandemic. We could arrange to send our students safely to their homes in time. We also did not let the pandemic affect the annual academic cycle as we found, with difficulties, a way to conduct the entrance test and complete the admission process for both last year’s batch and this year’s. Although the initiation of your academic journey is delayed, we will make up for the loss of time and catch up on the syllabi.


The robust nature of our academic atmosphere has been kept intact, even though we are conducting our classes online. We have globally-recruited faculty members representing various countries of the SAARC. Besides the interactive online live classes, we have online seminars and conferences throughout the semesters and I would encourage you to participate in all of them actively.


Our alumni are doing extremely well in their chosen fields. We are happy that many of our alumni have been accepted in many Universities of repute around the world, for their further studies as well as in teaching positions. Many of them are also working with National Governments, think tanks and International organisations, while some have chosen to be entrepreneurs.


Let me once again welcome you to this International University. Make the best of your time here in SAU. This is an incredible platform for you to make new friends from the SAARC region. Collaborate with your friends and make your time here productive and memorable. I wish you all the very best for your academic journey ahead !


With Warm Regards,


Prof. Ranjan Kumar Mohanty
Acting President
