India and UK to work together on mutual degree recognition

17 December 2020

The UK and India have agreed to work collaboratively on mutual recognition of academic qualifications, starting with master’s degrees.

UK foreign secretary Dominic Raab attended meetings in India this week and on December 16, Raab and Indian minister for education Ramesh Pokhriyal agreed to work together on mutual recognition of academic qualifications over the next year. The news was welcomed by Universities UK International as “fantastic progress” in an area it has worked on with members and sector partners, such as British Council India.

In other news, the University of Edinburgh announced that it will open a new biotechnology university in the Indian state of Gujarat in July 2021. The UK government welcomed the news as “the first foreign university collaboration of its kind in India”.


 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
