A press release issued by college principal Sophia N Fernandes and co-ordinator of international programmes Prof Joselyn T Lobo states that  under the ‘transfer model’ agreement the students of Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) and Bachelor of Arts (BA) can opt to pursue the final semester of their degrees in the United States after completing two years in the college.
