What the alliances do?
These alliances are a formal arrangement by which a special connectivity has been created between a degree granting institution like a university and NIIT, which is a non-degree granting institution. This connectivity is the hallmark of NA-Universities alliances whereby NIIT Career Education has been accorded a status, which a University normally gives only to the offerings of another University.
All students who have completed at least a 2-year of NIIT program after PUSRC is an Alumni for the NIIT Academy.
In specific terms, from the point of NIIT students, NIIT Programmes of Studies under Career Education, leading to all NIIT Awards of 2-year and > 2-year duration are granted block credits in terms of block of years by the partnering universities of the alliance. Result is that all NIIT students on completion of NIIT Award (of 2 or > 2-yr duration) have not only (i) an access to a degree of the partnering university, but they also (ii) have a headstart towards a degree by the virtue of durational exemption they receive for their studies at NIIT.


What is the coverage of the alliances?
All students
All prospective students of NIIT will be covered under the alliances as soon as they enroll themselves into NIIT Career Programme of Studies of at least 2-year duration.
All currently enrolled students of NIIT Career Education come under the ambit of alliances as soon as they complete first four NIIT semesters.
By the same token, all NIIT alumni who have completed at least four semesters of career education at NIIT, irrespective of time and place, are automatically included and can immediately proceed to fill up DCA on the web-site of The NIIT Academy.
All NIIT Awards
All NIIT Awards under Career Education of 2-year or > 2-year duration, after PUSRC.

All Structural and Curricular Variations in NIIT Educational System
NIIT educational system and the various programmes of studies differ in such details as: nomenclature of the Award (e.g. PNC,DNIIT, etc), input qualification (e.g. Class XII, ‘A’ level, 10+2, etc.), incorporation of Bachelors Degree (BD) or a structure without BD (e.g. GNIIT with BD and GNIIT without BD).

Alliances cover all NIIT Career Education Centres, located anywhere in the world.

      What are the special and exclusive benefits to NIIT Students?
They can cross over to the Degree path of partnering university at the end of any NIIT Award which is of minimum 2-year duration. Students who are enrolled in NIIT Programmes at the end of their PUSRC have a smooth cross-over.
The arrangement provides advance standing admission to the alumni of NIIT, depending upon the academic preparation of the candidate, in and outside NIIT, and Universities valuation on a case by case basis.

The candidate may be asked to submit the proof of adequate english proficiency as deem fit by the concerned University.
