The reason behind commencing the admission process for international students three months in advance is to give them more time to arrange visas. These students will get provisional admission from the varsity after they produce the eligibility certificate. The varsity will check the marks of the students and take the decision on granting admission to the respective student. With the provisional admission letter, international students will be able to apply for visas and get admission in the respective courses.

After Pune University, the University of Mysore stands in the second place in terms of the number of international students pursuing higher education in India. At present, close to 765 international students from 55 countries are pursuing various courses at the University of Mysore. The majority of students are from Africa and Afghanistan.
