UK universities tempted by New Education Policy (NEP)

According to top British government officials, a team of 22 institutions from the United Kingdom will be in India from June 6 to 10. There will be events in both nations to hunt for New Education Policy (NEP) aligned cooperation, according to a copy provided by PTI.

This delegation will be the largest of UK higher education leaders, which will be hosted by the British Council, the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities.

The group, which will meet with Indian government officials and university leaders, will include representatives from 22 UK universities, Universities UK International (UUKi), the Department for Education (DfE UK), and the Department for International Trade (DIT UK).

As per reports, the Delhi Sports University and the University of East London signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Tuesday to provide world-class sports education to Indian athletes. The signing of the collaboration, according to Barbara Wickham OBE, Director India, British Council, will be extremely beneficial to students interested in pursuing professions in athletics.

Steve Smith, International Education Champion, UK Government, told PTI, “The India-UK education relationship has emerged at the tail end of the pandemic stronger than ever. Over the next few days, the delegation will focus on expanding the scope and scale of India-UK partnerships in a range of thematic areas, through different models of collaboration such as Transnational Education (TNE), dual degrees, knowledge and expertise sharing, amongst others,” 

The group will also address ways for UK institutions to work with Indian companies and employers, as well as current trends in two-way international student recruitment and mobility in India and the United Kingdom.

It will also address migration and mobility partnerships, reciprocal recognition of higher education degrees, and other measures for higher education internationalisation.
