Uni Melbourne expanding in India

Aus uni ambitions are not on the formal agenda for the Australia-India Leadership Dialogue tomorrow – but they will be talked about

In India, News18 reports  the Uni Melbourne will establish a “micro-campus” next year offering joint degrees taught in India and Aus, micro-credentials and “professional courses.” Student in India will be taught by staff from Australia and Indian academics.

Uni Melbourne DVC I Michael Wesley is quoted as saying the university wants to reach student groups separate to those that travel to Australia.

The micro-campus appears in-line with what Uni Melbourne describes as its “blended academy” model, offering “innovative curriculums” which it quality-controls.

Uni Melbourne announced in April a diploma and bachelor of education to be taught with Savitribai Phule Pune University.
