Nothing new out of India

Hopes for a new HE market will remain that

Universities have long invested resources and patience in expanding into India and for years Indian governments have talked of allowing international universities to set up shop.

It’s happening again with a new policy from the Ministry of Human Resource Development. It states, “high performing Indian universities will be encouraged to set up campuses in other countries, and similarly, select universities (e.g., those from among the top 1000 universities in the world) will be permitted to operate in India.”

There will be, “dispensation regarding regulatory, governance, and content norms on par with other autonomous institutions of India” and “credits acquired in foreign universities” will count for degrees.

Good-o but there is no word on whether the top 100 would be able, to say, take earnings out of the country.
