Positive Reforms in Indian Education Policy Make UK Universities Happy

The higher education academic organization in the U.K is delighted about reforms planned by India in its New Education Policy (N.E.P) draft and is seeing forward to good developments, as per the Universities UK International (U.U.K.i)  Chairman, Steve Smith. UUKi is a body signifying higher education institutes in the UK.

UUKi Opinion on New Education Policy of India

U.U.K.i says it is a great draft. We are enthusiastic about the changes planned in the draft to research its content further. UUKi feels positive on some of the plans and it is a good time to recognize genuine sections of overlap within the two nations, where UUKi interest match, Smith said.

Smith was in Delhi presently as portion of a delegation of Vice-Chancellors of above 20 UK Universities to explore possibilities of mutual benefit in the higher education field with stakeholders in India, along with the institutions and the government.

The visit was a portion of higher education- concentrated bilateral program — UK-India Research &  Education Initiative (UKIERI) managed by the British Council. In the year 2006, India and the UK joined into a long-term bilateral program, U.K.I.E.R.I, with a target on higher education.

New education policy was a portion of the BJP's manifesto before the 2014 general election. The current New Education Policy was drafted in 1986 and updated in 1992.

Directing long-standing requirement to increase the number of students from India preferring to UK universities, the government of UK had announced a latest two-year post-study work visa path for all global students.

The UK terminated its two-year’s post-study work visa during the Theresa May's time as home secretary of UK in the year 2012, broadly seen as reliable for a significant decline in student numbers from nations like India.

The developments in the policy of visa had been on the conversation for long and ultimately it is published as a welcome move, Smith told.

India does not accept a master’s degree of one-year which is provided by all Universities of UK since India has master’s degree for two-years. The model makes it challenging for students of India to seek a doctorate in India following a Masters in the UK.
