These “HUBS” are a great innovation by Deakin University – giving it a great advantage in the Indian era of the New Education Policy.
Deakin Vice-Chancellor Professor Iain Martin visiting New Delhi, India, announcing the launch of partner-institutions so that students can commence the first part of their studies in their home country.
“I am excited to be back in India and it couldn’t have been for a better occasion than the launch of the DEAKIN UNIVERSITY HUBS at OP Jindal Global University, Symbiosis International University and Chitkara University,” said Professor Martin.
Here is why this is a big idea!
Indian students can now commence the first part of their studies with a Deakin partner institution in India and then transfer to a Deakin campus in Australia for the second part of their educational journey.
But that’s just the early stage of the HUBS.
“These hubs will provide valuable opportunities for growth, student mobility and joint research. They will promote enhanced collaboration between Indian institutes and Deakin, leading to academic and research excellence that will be highly beneficial for both countries,” said Professor Martin.
It gets better!
Deakin has established similar hubs with corporates – Infosys, TCS and more.
Deakin was the first international university to establish its presence in India in 1994.
