Anthony Albanese, the Australian prime minister, announced on Wednesday that the country, as well as the Indian government, had finalised the proposal for Australia-India qualification. Albanese came to India and announced that the Deakin University of Australia will create an international campus on the Gandhinagar of Gujarat, which is a GIFT city.
He stated that this will undoubtedly develop the bilateral educational relationship between the two countries. The new mechanism states that if Indian students have plans to pursue their higher education at Australian universities, their degrees will have the same recognition when they return home. On the other hand, degrees achieved from the Australian university campus in India will also be recognised in Australia.
Albanese said that this is one of the most ambitious as well as comprehensive arrangements agreed upon by India. The visiting prime minister of Australia also added that Australian higher educational institutes can develop more commercial opportunities so that Indian students can pursue their education from the international campus. This work will undoubtedly prove beneficial for international students.
How Can International Campus Help Indian Students?
Albanese also said that his government has plans to come up with a new scholarship scheme for Indian students who have plans to complete their higher studies at Australian universities. He said that the government is excited to announce the new scholarship scheme, the Maitri Scholarship, to Indian students.
This scholarship will help Indian students who have plans to study for 4 years at Australian universities. This specific scholarship is one of the most eye-catching parts of the Maitri programme that aims to enhance the educational cultural, and community relationship between India and Australia.
During the occasion where Albanese proposed the idea, the Chief Minister of Gujarat and the Governor were also present.
