(Some) HE opportunities in India

The new trade agreement extends access for some Australian HE providers -just not very far

The Department of Education Skills and Employment reports on what India will now allow.


twinning programme: 30 per cent of a qualification awarded by an Indian university can be studied at a foreign university, “through a conventional mode of study”

joint degree: syllabus jointly created by Indian and off-shore partners, minimum 30 per cent studied with the latter

dual degree: Not what it means in Australia. In India it is two degree in the same field and academic level. 30 per cent of total credits must be from the Indian university and subjects completed at either count to the degrees from both.

participants: Indian universities must meet specified national accreditations or be in the top 1000 on the Times Higher or QS rankings. Foreign universities must be similarly rated by Times or QS
