UNSW passages to India

The university looks to new markets

The university has an agreement with India’s Manipal Academy of Higher Education, for research collaboration and student pathways and dual degrees. The degree issuing institute teaches mainly business, STEM and health courses to 27 000 students at its campus in the southwest state of Karnataka, and branches in Kamataka state – and Dubai.

The relationship is part of UNSW’s India Growth Strategy, which includes quadrupling Indian students at UNSW to 2000 by 2025 and building off-shore markets. As, VC Ian Jacobs told a Sydney conference, “that there is a mismatch between where the need and demand for higher education is globally, and where the expertise resides,” (CMM June 18). That month, UNSW announced its MOOCS will be available on-line in India, through private provider Amity U.
