What is the UGC foreign Campuses Draft?
UGC Chairman Jagadesh Kumar announced the guidelines for Foreign Universities to set up campuses in India. According to the guidelines, all Foreign Universities which wish to set up campuses in India will be allowed to do so only after they receive approval from the UGC. The said approval will be given for a period of 10 years only. The universities applying will have to either be in the top 500 to apply or be highly reputed in their respective countries.
In case the ranking of the university is between 500 and 1000 but the subject-wise ranking is higher than overall, then the universities will be permitted to set up their campuses only for those ranked courses.
All the foreign universities which open their campuses in India will be allowed to conduct offline classes only which means, the programmes offered will be full-time.REGISTER FOR RESULTS UPDATES
