Editorials

Internationalization of higher education is one of the prominent reforms under National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. It aims to strengthen India’s “soft power” through higher education collaboration, bringing new ideas and institutions from abroad to stimulate reform and show “best practice”, and to make India a global player in higher education.

New thinking

  • More flexibility: The NEP 2020 recommended foreign universities ranked in the “top 100” category to operate in India. Realising that more flexibility was needed the UGC formed a committee to draft regulations to allow foreign institutions in the “top 500” category to establish campuses in India.
  • Immense Opportunity: India is the world’s second largest “exporter” of students and has the world’s second largest higher education system. Foreign countries and universities will be interested in providing opportunities for home campus students to learn about Indian business, society, and culture to participate in growing trade and other relations.
  • Quality education, not profit-seeking: Globally, many branch campuses are aimed at making money for the sponsoring university and some have proved to be unstable. A recent example is the ending of the decade­long partnership between Yale University and the National University of Singapore in running the Yale­ NUS College in Singapore.
