Visit IISER Pune 

Student groups from schools, junior & senior colleges, universities, and institutes are welcome to visit IISER Pune. ​

We have a large campus equipped with lectures halls, teaching as well as research labs with state-of-the-art instruments, housing, dining and recreational facilities, and a well-stocked library. Visitors to the institute get a flavour of research and academic life on campus. We are happy to show to students of various disciplines, instruments and equipment that they may have learnt about but haven't seen. The visiting groups can also be given an opportunity to interact with IISER Pune faculty members from relevant fields. The visits are customised to suit the background and age-group of the students.

Schedule of a typical visit:

1. Such visits usually last for 3-4 hours and are planned in a morning or afternoon session on: working Wednesdays for school * junior college groups, and working Fridays for senior college/other groups.

2. Students are given an introductory talk about IISER Pune, its philosophy, academic programmes, admission procedures, etc.

3. The group is then given a general tour of the campus.

4. This is followed by a visit to specific labs / instrumentations facilities as per the background and requirement of the students.

5. A talk / interaction with one of our faculty members could be arranged, depending on their availability.

6. The visitors can spend some time exploring the IISER Pune library.
