logo gip

SAI International Schools believes in offering the best global opportunities to its students, staff and administration. In order to fulfill this vision we conduct five Global Immersion Programmes (GIP) to UK, USA, Singapore, China and Uganda. Each trip has its own unique charm and learning experience. SAI students are also expected to host their counterparts during their visits to India. SAI has hosted over 350 students and teachers from abroad. Nearly 580 SAI students and teachers have participated in this incredible intercontinental experience, truly giving our students and teachers a massive global edge. Please take a look at this colossal initiative.
