The India Story | What does UGC’s new move mean for Indian students?

Draft UGC rules finally allow for foreign varsities to set up campuses in India. What does this mean for our students?

After decades of going back and forth on the matter, the UGC has finally unveiled draft rules for allowing foreign universities to set up campuses in India. The new guidelines give foreign universities autonomy over fees, recruitment of teachers, course structures and admission guidelines. The new rules also allow for satellite campuses to repatriate funds to parent bodies.

This year, 650,000 Indian students went abroad for studying with an outflow of $28-30 bn. This move could potentially give students access to world class education without having to incur high living costs, as well as reverse India’s brain drain problem.
