The scholars program is designed to accommodate a small number of students, and Brandeis faculty will work with individual students to design a semester-long program that will include coursework and research.  The IISc curriculum offers a host of courses that can enrich the Brandeis curriculum.  In addition, they offer courses that are equivalent to Brandeis courses. The facilities at the IISc are very well-equipped and many national research facilities are housed there.  Academic divisions at the IISc include Biological Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Electrical Sciences, Mathematical and Physical Sciences and Mechanical Sciences. The language of instruction is English, which is also the primary language spoken on campus.

Located on 400 lush acres that feels like an Arboretum in the heart of the bustling city of Bangalore.  The Institute is a residential campus that students, faculty and staff call home.  The campus is located within a science research and education hub that includes the Raman Research Institute, the National Center for Biological Sciences and the Jawaharlal Nehru Center for Advanced Scientific Research.
