On the eve of the new year 2023, the Chairman of the University Grants Commission (UGC) of India, Professor M. Jagadesh Kumar, gave an interview with the Indian news agency IANS, in which he discussed various trends and changes that are expected to happen in the higher education sector in India in 2023.
UGC chairman has listed some rules and steps that the apex higher education regulatory body is planning to implement this year.
Several universities are working on introducing a Four-Year Undergraduate Program (FYUP) that allows the institutions to create their own implementation mechanisms through academic and executive councils to better facilitate students in pursuing their research interests, promoting creativity, and fostering entrepreneurial and innovative skills, ultimately leading to better employability.
The FYUP is designed to implement a holistic and multidisciplinary educational approach, providing students the flexibility to focus on their chosen major and minor areas of interest, as per their preferences. With the introduction of the ‘Curriculum and Credit Framework for Undergraduate Programme’ by the University Grants Commission (UGC), universities now have the option of providing an FYUP, allowing students to study one or more specialized areas of interest in-depth.
The National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020) plans to bring in some of the world’s top universities to operate in India, by providing the necessary provisions for setting up and operating campuses of Foreign Higher Educational Institutions (FHEIs) in the country. This move aims to provide an international dimension to higher education in India while allowing Indian students to obtain foreign qualifications at a more affordable cost and make India a more attractive study destination for students from around the globe.
It is reported that several universities from countries such as the USA, UK, France, Australia, and Italy have shown their interest in this opportunity, and it is expected that once the regulatory provision is announced, more well-performing foreign universities will come forward to apply.
The University Grants Commission (UGC) has also reached out to Ambassadors and Heads of Missions from 66 different countries whose universities are eligible for collaboration. These countries include the USA, UK, Australia, Canada, Germany, Singapore, Israel, New Zealand, Norway, and Malaysia among others. Meetings were organized with select US universities with the support of the Indian Mission and German universities in collaboration with DAAD.
At present, 49 foreign HEIs are collaborating with Indian HEIs. Indian students will be able to earn internationally relevant education in India through twinning, joint, or dual degree programs with academic collaborations between Indian and foreign HEIs.
