Gauhati University gives high priority to relations with the universities / institutions of the rest of the world. To facilitate the process, in 2016, Gauhati University launched First International Chapter of the Alumni Association in London, UK, which is known as the European Chapter for the purpose of academic exchange between Gauhati University and various European universities / institutions. This initiative has subsequently extended to Australia, China and some South Asian Universities. As a result, several MoUs have been signed between Gauhati University and institutions of these countries to explore the potential for collaborations in research and teaching as well as initiate student exchange programmes between institutions.

The Gauhati University Office of International Relations (GUOIR) coordinates the processes of collaboration between Gauhati University and foreign institutions.
