The University Grants Commission (UGC)’s new regulations and guidelines for their twinning, dual and joint degree programmes, seem to have evoked a lot of interest from foreign educational institutions. Nearly 48 universities have responded to UGC, eager to set up satellite campuses in the country and to collaborate with Indian academic institutions on twinning degree programmes.
While two of the three programmes, twinning and dual degrees, existed earlier, these new amendments will make collaborations between the foreign and Indian institutions easier and more flexible. By and large, the regulatory body has simplified norms on eligibility of institutions to enter into foreign collaborations and dispensed with its elaborate approval processes, all of which, has been left to the two collaborating institutions.
