Foreign Students

PGGCG-11 has been a choice of foreign students since many years, and we have been having students from different parts of the world, keen at taking admission in various courses offered. Studying in the companionship of fellows from a different socio-cultural milieu contributes significantly in shaping an all-rounded personality. They are encouraged to look at life and learning from a fresh perspective than the one they have been used to. We at PGGCG-11 welcome our international students with open arms and our students extend full cooperation and support as it also helps the Indian students to know about other countries. The college organises various activities for the foreign students whereby they showcase their culture and talent, and develop a sense of confidence, affiliation and belongingness.

“When I stepped my feet in PGGCG-11, I had no idea that I am going to make some great memories here. I met caring and gentle teachers in this college who have  helped us at every step- be it admission or classes. PGGCG-11 is an institution where students can freely share their experiences and thoughts with faculty and students both, thus, I feel I am lucky to be a part of such an amazing college. My experience here is definitely something I would never forget. ”

I came to Chandigarh to pursue Masters degree in a world renowned institution while reconnecting with my cultural roots- PGGCG-11 has allowed me to do both. The teachers here are incredibly welcoming and they teach their subjects passionately, and there is a lot available for students in terms of academic support and extracurricular activities. The college has an overall environment which just motivates me to do my best.

PGGCG-11 is synonymous to interactive classes, highly qualified teachers who are always ready to solve our doubts at any hour. It is a treat being a student of this prestigious institute as the campus life is great. The college has  lush green gardens with variety of trees and flowers. The cafeteria offers yummy food and beverages and most importantly, if there are any issues faced by students, it is addressed on a priority basis.

PGGCG-11 shaped my life in so many positive ways. Felt home while away from home. Why? Because of some of the amazing and cool teachers and of course my classmates and batch mates who have remained friends and guide thus far.

One critical take-away from academic life in college: the system should not require students to write very long answers to a single question. Our fingers hurt so much.

Please make the best of your time in the college in making amazing friends with your classmates and teachers. Make friends, build your network, and do not cram! Learn it by heart and you are good to go.

My time at our PGGCG was an experience I will never forget. This college has by far the friendliest environment, which extends to the professors and even the students. I have developed both my interpersonal and academic skills at GCG. I’ve learned some of the most important life skills as a GCGian, and I now I think I’ve been well-prepared for life’s problems- all thanks to our institution. I will always have happy memories of this place and my GCG family, no matter where I go in life or what I do.
