The International Office with its vision to internationalize Higher Education in Odisha realizes that the need of the hour is to increase the employability and strive for greater recognition of local scholarship by ensuring global visibility of Utkal University. It is, therefor e, very essential that the scholars opt for a program, which meets their aptitude, capacity and capability. I invite the prospective scholars from India and abroad to become a part of our vibrant culture and become a professional partner in laying a sound foundation for a better world and the nation as a whole.
