First time ever, foreign universities to set up their campuses in India: 2 from Australia and 1 from UK

Union Minister for Education and Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Dharmendra Pradhan along with Minister for Education, Government of Australia, Jason Clare has announced the opening of Deakin University and the University of Wollongong campuses in Gandhinagar, Gujarat.

A third university from the United Kingdom is also readying to set up its campus at GIFT City in Gujarat.

Explaining the teaching methods of different programmes in India, Patricia M Davidson, Vice Chancellor (VC) and President at the University of Wollongong, said, “As in Australia, UOW aims to provide a dynamic learning experience by offering a blend of offline and online resources. Our courses are designed to engage students through interactive online platforms, supplemented by in-person sessions, workshops, and hands-on experiences.”

He added that the plan is to provide opportunities for students to engage in a variety of scaffolded, purposefully designed, and learner-centred work-integrated learning (WIL) experiences within their degree.

WIL at UOW refers to activities that integrate real-world work practices with academic learning. These experiences can occur in physical or simulated workplaces, in-person or remotely, and in classroom settings. They encompass practicums, placements, internships, service learning, industry projects, workplace simulations, and professional activities.

Sessions at the universities will be starting in July 2024 – at an annual fee of around Rs 10.7 lakh. The universities will also open admission for its undergraduate programme in computing in 2025.
